Keke Palmer and Trey Songz’s friendship went up in flames last month when Palmer originally accused Songz of secretly filming her and using the footage in his latest music video. Since then, Songz has fired back that Palmer is lying and that he did nothing to deceive or manipulate her. Although Palmer has claimed that she just wants the issue to be over, she recently defended herself against Songz’s claims that she’s a liar.
As previously reported, Songz responded in an interview to Palmer’s claims that Songz used “sexual intimidation” and secretly filmed her while she was on the set of his “Pick Up the Phone” remix video.
“Ain’t nobody put her on camera without asking. There’s a sign on the door that there’s a video being shot. You stop on these premises, you will be recorded. Point blank, period. I don’t have to say nothing else about nothing,” Songz said.
Well, during a recent radio interview, Palmer opened up, once again, about the controversy and denied Songz’s accusations while admitting that fans are just going to believe who they want to believe.
“He’s lying. I mean, he knows what it is, and people gon’ say what they wanna say — there’s nothing that I can do about that. It’s just my word, his word. It’s over now,” Palmer said.
When asked if her friendship with Songz is really over, Palmer replied, “I mean probably after this last thing he said, yeah. We already came to a conclusion. I’ve already let it go and I was the one that felt a way. If I can let it go, you can let it go. But if you don’t want to let it go, I really don’t give a sh*t because I’ve already moved forward.”
Palmer then explained that Songz seems guilty even in how he responded to her public complaint about him.
“Somebody that had true intentions would be like, ‘You know what? My bad.’ You should be looking out for me anyway. I’ve known you since I was 12,” Palmer said.
The actress revealed that other women have come forward to tell her that they too have been in similar situations with the singer.
“The messages that I got from other women saying that [they] were put in similar situations and had gone through unfortunately similar events with this person, it made me feel like, ‘Whoo I did what I needed to do,'” Palmer explained.
