Earlier this week, Keke Palmer let it be known that she wasn't trying to be in Trey Songz's "Pick Up The Phone" video. In one lengthy post (of many) on Instagram, Palmer described having to physically hide in a closet because of whatever transpired, even going as far as to say that Songz used "sexual intimidation" during the ordeal.

During a recent visit to Larry King Now, Palmer opened up even further, describing how she even ended up in that situation, which took place at a New Year's Eve party in Miami.

"I wasn't in the right mind," Keke explained. "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."

In regards to the claims of "sexual intimidation" that she allegedly suffered, Keke said that "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," she continued, "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.'"

She says she hasn't heard from Trey directly about this situation (which did involve Keke's footage being scrubbed from the video), but she says she does plan on taking legal action. "The video is down now," Keke said, "but moreso my point isn't to say it's just specifically about this guy and what he did," she said. "It's the overall idea that you can't just do stuff to people and it's alright—no matter who you are."

Keke's full interview with Larry King will be released on February 1, 2017.
