Keke Palmer is trying to rise above the drama.
The 26-year-old Hustlers actress is reacting after being slammed by August Alsina on Twitter.
It all started on Friday night (July 10) when Keke responded to a fan asking to confirm rumors that she once dated the 27-year-old rapper.
“August was never my man,” Keke responded. “That’s why you’re still reaching to this day to figure out nothing.”
August then got wind of Keke‘s response and took the opportunity to speak out.
“U absolutely right. I was NEVER ur man. You could possibly never shortie. It seems u mad u got curved, but ur ‘friends’ r the reason 4 that,” August tweeted. “Dey showed me an endless thread of txt/pics of me dat u sent, wrry’d abt who i date & BEGGED me 2 not further disturb ur mental instability.”
August went on to write, “Imagine not knowing how to mind the business that pay you. I catch all the subliminals. (Not just about today) & you can call me whatever you like, Mess is constantly inserting yourself in topics you have nun to do w/. Go play w/ ya MAMMY! Not me!”
August then clapped back at a Twitter user who called him out for fighting with “any female who tries him.”
“Nah, I”;m literally not. I actually f–ked w/ KeKe. So to see her covertly speaking subliminal shade around my name over the past week Is deeply perplex,” August wrote. “I don”;t and never have had a problem w/ the girl. It”;s always been Virgo love! So to see that is a mind f–k to me.”
After seeing August‘s tweets, Keke took to Instagram to address the situation, but didn’t specifically name August.
“I wanna be mean, but I can”;t. I want to post screenshots, but I won”;t,” Keke wrote. “I feel attacked, but It”;s not about me. It”;s about so much more than that and as much as I want to defend myself against the disrespect I have received(cause I mean I”;m not nice all the time 😜) this is about something so much bigger.”
Keke continued: “I wouldn”;t feel good kicking someone when they are down because it”;s so easy to attack when you”;re in a corner, I get it. People be hurting y”;all and most of the time it has nothing to do with you. I can”;t f–k up my karma worried about my ego, though I”;m human and I have one. Just know I am that bitch despite what my humility may make one believe. I don”;t have to beg or be thirsty for a damn thing because my talent speaks louder than my looks. Let the cheek be turned pooh”;s, my character is too strong.”
If you missed it, this married actress admitted she was in a relationship with August while separated from her husband.
