Since purple is predominantly made up of blue that is apt to happen. Best solution: use a greenscreen.

Alternate solutions: use masking to isolate the purple areas. You won't need to re-shoot this way, but it makes the process a lot slower and more difficult.

Or, perhaps adjusting your key settings could help, but we can't say for certain without seeing the original image.
