Halle Berry called out Drake for using a photo of her to promote his new music without asking her.
To promote "Slime You Out" featuring SZA, Drake posted a photo of Berry covered in green goo.
"I just wish these men out here would give women the respect we deserve," the "X-Men" star wrote.
The bad blood between the the actor and the rapper kicked off when Drake, 36, shared a photo taken of Berry, 57, at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards to announce his new track "Slime You Out" featuring SZA.
The song, a first-time collaboration between the artists, was released Friday morning, Variety reported.
But Berry did not take to kindly to the use of her image, sharing a quote on Instagram that hinted at her disapproval: "Sometimes you have to be the bigger guy... Even if you're a woman!"
She subsequently confirmed that the post was directed at Drake in the comment section, responding to a user who asked her for her "thoughts" on Drake using her photo by saying: "Didn't get my permission. That's not cool I thought better of him !"
"Hence my post today. When people you admire disappoint you you have to be the bigger person and move on !" she added.
To another user's comment, she wrote that the issue was "about principles and integrity" and that she was "happy" many of her fans got where she was coming from.
Berry also questioned "exactly" what "Slime You" meant in her response to another user who said they would be "more upset" about what the song was inferring.
Despite her frustration, the "X-Men" star suggested that she would not be taking legal action against the rapper after one fan suggested she "take em to court."
"I'm not interested in suing my people I just wish these men out here would give women the respect we deserve," Berry wrote.
Representatives for Halle Berry and Drake did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Insider, which were made outside of normal working hours.
