Keke Asks For Postponement

In a recent update, Keke Palmer has requested a rescheduling of the restraining order hearing that she previously initiated against Darius Jackson, her ex-boyfriend, and the father of their child.

The former couple initiated discussions on Nov. 29 and agreed to postpone their court date, scheduled for Dec. 5, to attend mediation. The original hearing date was scheduled for the actress/singer to make her case for why the temporary restraining order against Jackson should be permanent.

This news comes shortly after Sarunas Jackson, the brother of Darius Jackson, faced accusations of abuse from his ex-girlfriend and Insecure costar, DomiNique Perry.

Court Document Details

Palmer had initially filed for full custody of their child and a restraining order against Jackson, which was granted based on leaked camera footage showing Jackson physically assaulting her. 

The disturbing video depicted Jackson lunging at Palmer’s neck, assaulting her, and forcefully taking her phone when she attempted to contact the authorities. The court documents state that both parties:

“Are concurrently filing a Stipulation and Order to continue The Court’s Order to Participate in Mediation currently set for November 29, 2023, and Petitioner’s Request for Domestic Violence Restraining Order, which is currently set for December 5, 2023, to allow the parties time to attend mediation.” 

Following the news, fans took to social media to voice their opinion of the matter. 

One user named @OnlyKenneth wrote, “It’s her business and she wants it to be private. He’s the one that’s been speaking publicly. I hope she gets the resolution she wants.” Another user named @anseldeangelo wrote, “This is the biggest disadvantage with having a child with someone. When it’s just you two, and bullshit happens, it’s an EASY severance. But as soon as a jit’s picture, despite cheating, beating, etc, all it takes is a, “But we’re a family” for the victim to reconsider.”

Keke Palmer’s Mother Threatens To Put ‘A Bullet’ In Ex-Boyfriend’s Head

Keke Palmer’s personal life turns dark as disturbing allegations emerge from leaked camera footage involving her now ex-boyfriend Darius Jackson. The incident stems from an ongoing custody dispute over their infant son, Leo, which escalated into a confrontation and ultimately led to a temporary restraining order against Jackson. 

How It All Started

The leaked camera footage and insider sources shed light on the events involving Keke Palmer, her mother Sharon Palmer, and Darius Jackson. 

According to those close to the actor/singer, Jackson trespassed into her home, where he aggressively confronted Keke while she was on a phone call with her mother, Sharon. Concerned for her daughter’s safety, Sharon allegedly issued a chilling threat, saying she would put a “bullet” in Jackson’s head as she couldn’t be physically present to protect Keke.

Ongoing Custody Battle

Issues between Keke and Jackson arose from a dispute regarding custody arrangements for their infant son, Leo. 

On February 13, 2022, Jackson texted Keke about picking up their child to watch football, only to find Leo absent upon arrival at Keke’s residence. This led to a heated argument between the couple, resulting in Keke involving her mother by putting her on speakerphone. 

Sharon’s enraged and expletive-laden outburst allegedly included a threat against Jackson’s life, substantially escalating the situation.

The Text Message Exchange

Darius’ mother, Yhinyer, got news of the “bullet to the head” threat and issued a text message to Sharon, stating: 

“How are you? I have tried not to get involve in my son’s personal business, but I heard that you are going to put a Bullet in my sons head??? Well, then now we have to involve the authorities, because you don’t respect or value yourself and I can see no my son’s life. You might have to kill all of us. I will file a police report on you now.”

In response to Yhinyer’s outreach, Sharon responded:

“ Please do not contact me with this ridiculous childish behavior your son choked his own sister, deal with his anger issues, if he attacks my daughter in her own own where she pays the bills he is trespassing and anything can happen so he should stay away. You should be very ashamed to have raised a man who fights women.”

As Darius Jackson denies Keke’s allegations of abuse, the spotlight shifts to the ongoing custody battle between the former couple.

The Keke Palmer Abuse Allegations Expose The Silent Epidemic of Domestic Violence In Hollywood 

Actress and television host Keke Palmer has made shocking allegations against her ex-boyfriend Darius Jackson, accusing him of abuse.  Palmer filed for a restraining order which included disturbing photos as evidence against Jackson and is seeking full custody of their child.

Darius Jackson Accused of Assault

The court documents obtained by The New York Post reveal harrowing incidents of physical assault, trespassing, and theft that Palmer alleged to have endured at the hands of Darius Jackson. Photos contained in the restraining order depict a man who appears to be Jackson attempting to throw Keke Palmer over a couch, verifying her claims. 

The documents describe one incident when Jackson allegedly broke into Palmer’s home and attacked her.

“Trespassed into my home without my knowledge or consent, threatened me, then physically attacked me – lunging for my neck, striking me, throwing me over the couch and stealing my phone when I told him I was going to call the police.” 

Keke Palmer’s motivation for seeking a protective order against Darius was primarily focused on their child’s safety. She emphasized:

“He needs and deserves to be safe and grow up in an environment free from violence. He is unhinged, volatile and dangerous.” 

Sarunas Jackson Speaks Out

“Insecure” actor Sarunas Jackson, appeared to speak out against his brother Darius’ Jackson, exposing a history of abusive behavior and calling him “vile.”

Sharon Palmer Reported The Abuse Over A Year Ago 

Amid these distressing revelations, Sharon Palmer, Keke’s mother, took to Instagram to speak out against Sarunas Jackson, Darius’ brother. Sarunas had previously called his brother “disgusting, vile, abusive, manipulative,” but Sharon labeled him as “phony” and accused him of knowing about the abuse beforehand. Sharon also alleged that Sarunas “taught his brother how to be abusive.” Mother Palmer said she regretted going to social media but had to speak out.

“I went to Sarunas over a year ago and told him that his brother was abusive to my daughter, and he said, ‘Well, I used to be like that too. So now he’s posting on Twitter like he’s this special guy when we know he’s the biggest f – – kboy in Hollywood; he’s disrespectful to women just like his brother.”

Silent Domestic Violence In Hollywood

By Sharon Palmer’s admission, the abuse that Keke Palmer allegedly faced at the hands of Darius Jackson had been going on for at least one year.  It appears that both family and friends knew of the domestic violence but Keke endured the situation in silence.

The couple broke off their engagement in mid-August according to PEOPLE, after Jackson made remarks on social media disparaging Palmer’s appearance at Usher’s Las Vegas show.  This public demeaning of Palmer was the first red flag that indicated trouble in paradise.

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, verbal abuse and jealousy are prime signs that may indicate physical abuse at home.  Other signs include but are not limited to possessiveness, unpredictability, a bad temper, extremely controlling behavior, and antiquated beliefs about the roles of women and men in relationships.  Jackson displayed the latter when he shamed her behavior at Usher’s show as unbecoming of “a mother.”  

Keke Palmer’s abuse allegations expose what appears to be a silent epidemic of domestic violence in Hollywood. Transformers movie actor Megan Fox only recently “came out” about the abuse she suffered in various relationships with “very famous people” in her new book, Pretty Boys Are Poisonous. She told GMA that holding the secret of the abuse inside was “making me sick.”

Keke Palmer Remains Silent

As of now, neither Keke Palmer, Darius Jackson nor their representatives have made any public statements regarding the allegations. This remains an ongoing and developing story that highlights domestic violence.

Keke Palmer is making headlines again due to her ex-boyfriend, Darius Jackson. Following her collaboration with Usher on his new song “Boyfriend,” Jackson seems to have “moved on” since their split, according to a close source. 

“Gotta Move On”

Jackson, focusing on his acting career, wants to put the drama behind him and ensure a harmonious co-parenting relationship. The source stated, “You don’t have to be in the same household to be good parents.”

While Palmer and Jackson may have gone their separate ways romantically, they continue prioritizing their co-parenting roles. 

Staying Focused

In February 2023, Palmer announced the arrival of their joyful little boy, Leo Jackson, through a series of captured moments leading up to the baby’s birth. However, the couple has not been seen together since Jackson publicly shamed Palmer for wearing a sheer outfit to an Usher concert in July 2023. 

In response to his comment, the actress/singer remained unfazed and used it as fuel to further her music career and keep her professional life on track.

Palmer and Jackson have not publicly addressed their relationship’s status despite their separation. Both seem to be focused on their respective careers and providing a supportive environment for their son, Leo.

Usher is finally breaking his silence on the controversy surrounding Keke Palmer’s boyfriend, Darius Jackson, and his comments about her outfit at one of the R&B legend’s concerts. Despite Jackson’s online backlash and being labeled the “domestic terrorist,” Usher sees the moment as a fun and memorable experience. 

“The Internet Is Crazy”

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Usher described the recent Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson incident as “a pop moment” and something “worth talking about.” The R&B vocalist stated:

“Every night I’m thinking about how the world now is going to react to this moment that I’ll have with whoever I’m choosing to sing to. But it was a pop moment, and it was fun to have at least a conversation going and we just keep it light. I don’t see anything negative happening in Las Vegas.”

In addition, Usher even embraced a nickname that fans gave him: the “Domestic Terrorist.” He jokes, “The internet is crazy. You can’t beat the internet.”

Usher Talks “Good Good”

In addition to addressing the controversy, Usher also shared exciting news about his new single, “Good Good.” The song features vocals from R&B singer Summer Walker and Atlanta rapper 21 Savage. The “U Got It Bad” singer stated:

“I mean, who better to really talk on the subject than two people that we watched go through some really vulnerable things in front of the world?” The singer went on to say,  “Summer, 21 Savage, myself, we all could collectively tell our story as we don’t necessarily always feel as comfortable talking about it in interviews and being vulnerable in that way, but on this song, it addresses the idea of what ‘Good Good’ is to them and what ‘Good Good’ is to me.”

He also emphasized that the song explores what “Good Good” means to them as individuals and how it can bring people together, even after a relationship has ended.

Should Keke Palmer Stay With Boyfriend Darius Jackson After Public Shaming?

Keke Palmer and her boyfriend, Darius Jackson, who is also the father of her child, have found themselves amid public controversy. After a video surfaced of Palmer enjoying Usher’s performance in Las Vegas, Jackson publicly criticized her outfit, sparking a debate about relationships and public shaming. As the couple navigates this turmoil, many question whether Palmer should continue her relationship with Jackson.

Keke Gets Serenaded By Usher

Keke Palmer’s presence at Usher’s Las Vegas Residency became a topic of discussion on social media when footage captured her being serenaded by the R&B legend. Palmer appeared joyful and engaged as she sang along, wearing a stunning mesh black dress. 

However, her boyfriend and the father of their child, Darius Jackson, publicly commented on the video, expressing his disapproval on Twitter by remarking, “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom.”

Jackson’s comment triggered a backlash, with many criticizing him for publicly shaming Palmer. He defended his statement in a follow-up tweet, expressing:

“We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is. This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.” 

Keke Palmer’s Instagram Post + Fans React

Amidst the discourse, Palmer has not responded publicly to Jackson’s remarks. Instead, she shared photos from the night at the Usher concert on her Instagram, and wrote:

“I wish I had taken more pictures but we were running late! I am telling ya’ll right now, if you haven’t seen @usher YOU MUST GO!! HE WAS SO FABULOUS!! Giving theater, Atlanta downnn, tips and tricks and just absolutely iconic. I was truly inspired as a performer. I whooped some ass in spades too! Where is that pic of us all together with the King himself?? @noraradd.”

The incident drew significant attention on social media, with various users sharing their opinions. Some criticized Jackson, likening him to his brother and implying a negative characterization of their family. 

One user tweeted about Darius Jackson saying, “So, he’s a b*tch like his brother. A family of bitches. Got it.” Insecure actor Sarunas J. Jackson responded to one user, expressing, “Now this is crazy. I’m confused lol we ain’t never met.. what did I ACTUALLY do lol and please don’t repeat the lies ya’ll love to say.”

Another social media user expressed, “Keke Palmer man being a hater out loud. This why you don’t publicly claim men especially ones with less money than you.” 

In response to the backlash, Darius Jackson has deactivated his Twitter account, presumably to avoid further scrutiny and negative comments. The public nature of the incident and its subsequent fallout highlights the challenges individuals face in maintaining personal relationships in the age of social media.

In February 2023, Keke Palmer welcomed her baby boy into the world alongside her boyfriend, Darius Jackson. The pregnancy announcement was made during Palmer’s appearance on SNL, and the couple has since embarked on the journey of parenthood together.

Keke Palmer has also launched her podcast, Baby, This Is Keke Palmer, available for streaming on platforms like Amazon Music and Apple Music
