The actress set social media on fire earlier this week with a series of videos calling out Trey Songz and his friends, accusing them of pressuring her to be in his music video for “Pick Up the Phone” without her permission. She now says she will take legal action.
Billboard reports that Keke spoke to Larry King about the incident that took place in Miami during New Year’s Eve, saying, “I wasn’t in the right mind. I had been drinking and eating and it wasn’t a professional environment. It was not a place where I was like I’m in the right mind to decide if this works with my brand, if I like the artist, I don’t know nothing about the artist that’s also in the song.”
When King asked the star about referring to Trey’s actions as “sexual intimidation,” Keke continued, “I feel as a female often I’m put in situations where sometimes males will use their masculinity, their sexuality to taunt you. It would be like you going to a party where the biggest jock is there and the whole time he’s like you can get screwed, you can get this you can get that, ‘You ain’t no little girl anymore.'”
As for her decision to take legal action against the R&B singer, Keke says, “My point isn’t to say it’s just specifically about this guy and what he did. It’s the overall idea that you can’t just do stuff to people and it’s alright — no matter who you are.”
