Drake used a throwback photo of Berry at the Teen Choice Awards, being covered in bright green goo, as the cover art for his new SZA collab, “Slime You Out,” and while the image can technically be purchased by anyone with a Getty Images license, the 57-year-old was still upset by the creative decision.
Initially, social media users thought Berry was being overdramatic, but on Saturday (September 16), it was revealed that Drake actually did reach out to the mother of one in hopes of getting her blessing. “He asked me and I said NO,” she clapped back at someone asking what’s got her so riled up. “Why ask if you intend to do what you want to do? That was the ‘F**k you’ to me. Not cool. You get it? ❤️.”

When replying to other comments, Berry noted that “principles and integrity” are what went wrong in the situation. “He did have his people call my people and I said NO,” the Ohio native doubled down elsewhere. “I don’t like that image of slime all over my face in association with his song. And he chose to do it anyway! You see… That is the disrespect. Not cool!” Though she’s clearly in her feelings about Drake’s cover art, Halle Berry made it known that she has no plans to sue. “I just wish these men out here would give women the respect we deserve,” she vented.
