Keke Palmer has a new movie coming out at the end of the month, and already “Brotherly Love” is getting quite the press because she’s involved in some drama with one of her cast mates.
If you’ve been keeping up with the gossip blogs for the last couple of days, then you know folks have been buzzing about Tia Mowry’s cryptic tweet many felt was shade to Keke Palmer:
Tia has since deleted the tweet, but it’s been making rounds on social media regardless. And some think she was being shady here too (check out how her wedding band is on full display and that caption):
Just to give you some background information, Keke is currently starring in a new movie entitled “Brotherly Love” with Tia’s husband Cory Hardrict, and she’s been accused of getting a little too cozy with Tia’s hubby in multiple photos.
It’s also rumored Tia confronted Keke at a red carpet event for the film recently:
However, Keke stopped by the Wendy Williams Show this morning and she decided to set the record straight on a couple of things.
On her rumored romance with August Alsina, she says:
“Not dating August. August is definitely a good friend of mine but we’re not dating. He don’t want no love! Don’t you know?
“He’s a really good cook. It was Memorial Day…one of the first times we hung out.
“A lot of times you become friends over text messages. I was in Atlanta Memorial Day a year ago before this. I went over his house and he cooked and I love his cooking so much. So when I came back to Atlanta this time, he was like, ‘ok let’s hang out and I’ll cook for you again.'”
On the drama regarding Tia and Cory, she says:
“Everything got misconstrued. The original interview…what happened was I’ve known Cory since I was about 10 years old. He auditioned for ‘Akeelah and the Bee.’ He auditioned to play my big brother in the film and in the interview, I was talking about how the whole ‘Brotherly Love’ cast kind of grew up together. I’ve known Quincy since I was 14, I’ve known most of the cast since I was very young including Cory. And I was like, ‘I’ve known Cory since I was 10 and I was like I’ma marry this man…as a 10-year-old. It was me quoting myself as a kid.”
Keke tells Wendy bluntly that digging married men isn’t her thing anyway:
“It’s not my style. I do love Cory and Tia.”
“Brotherly Love” hits theaters April 24. Check out the video below:
