“I kept asking, like, ‘When can I leave, what time is it?’ ” Aliza said at the time, as reported by People Magazine. “And he just, like, wouldn’t answer, he would just f——- ignore me.

She admits to a consensual sexual encounter but claims that Songz urinated on her without her consent. She claims that she “didn’t know what was happening, he just did it.”
Songz addressed the claims on social media, writing Aliza’s accusation is “convenient” for someone who seeks “to destroy someone’s life.” He added: “I usually stay quiet on this but I feel that in many ways the movement to fight for the women who actually have suffered harassment and abuse on various levels, has been hijacked by those who find it convenient for themselves to come up as they seek to destroy someone’s life,” he tweeted.
Keke Palmer accused Trey Songz of sexual intimidation
In 2017, Palmer claimed that Songz used “sexual intimidation” in order to make her appear in his music video. Songz released the video for his remix with Fabolous to the Travis Scott and Young Thug song “Pick Up the Phone,” which featured Palmer. Palmer claimed she didn’t give her consent for her image to be used in the video.
Palmer says she considered Songz to be a friend but that he “secretly filmed” her and “put me in the video against my wishes.” She even alleges she hid in a closet during the video shoot to avoid being on camera. Songz denied Palmer’s allegation.
