Halle Berry is calling out Drake after he used a picture of her for the cover of his latest single without her permission.
Berry, 57, called out the rapper, 36, over the cover art of his latest track Slime You Out, which features SZA.
The cover art is a picture of the actress getting slimed at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
The Oscar winner says Drake approached her and asked for her permission to use a photo of her for the single cover, to which Berry now alleges she said “no”.

“Hence my post today. When people you admire disappoint you have to be the bigger person and move on !” the actress added.
Berry garnered overwhelming support from her followers, and wrote in response to one comment, “It’s about principles and integrity. So happy many of you get that.”
Another commenter argued the picture of Berry is owned by Getty, meaning Drake most likely paid the required fee to be licensed to use it.

“Cuz he asked me and I said NO that’s why. Why ask if you intend to do what you want to do ! That was the f*ck you to me. Not cool You get it? ❤️” Berry replied.
Drake has seemingly not responded to Berry’s comments, but a cryptic post shared to his Instagram story on Saturday night may be a subtle nod to the feud.
The Canadian rapper posted a picture of himself wearing a shirt with a back graphic that read, ‘What the hell is going on?’.

“Literally though,” Drake captioned the photo on his story.
Drake has seemingly become experimental with his album artworks of late. Last month, the rapper commissioned his only son Adonis, five, to design a cover.
The five-year-old drew a dog with red eyes against a black background, which Drake has used for his upcoming record.
