Keke Palmer’s request for a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, Darius Jackson, has been granted temporarily until a hearing on December 5. The actress has submitted security camera footage, which allegedly shows Jackson physically assaulting her in her home.
Keke Palmer has obtained a temporary restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, Darius Jackson, after submitting security camera footage that allegedly shows him physically assaulting her. The footage captures an incident in February 2022, where Jackson reportedly choked and body-slammed Palmer after becoming jealous and angry over a bikini picture. Palmer’s mother has criticized Jackson and his brother for their alleged knowledge of the abuse.
Seeking Sole Custody
Earlier this week, Keke Palmer went to court seeking sole custody of her 8-month-old son, Leodis Andrellton Jackson. While she did not reveal the grounds for her custody request, she also filed for a restraining order against Jackson, claiming that she experienced “many instances of physical violence” with him, including one as recent as Sunday.
The Alleged Incident
Newly obtained documents reveal that Keke Palmer is presenting footage recorded in February 2022 as evidence of the alleged abuse. The footage reportedly shows Jackson choking and body-slamming her onto the stairs. The incident, according to Palmer, occurred after Jackson became “violently jealous and irrationally angry” over a bikini picture she showed only to him.
Palmer asserts that the abuse continued for two days following the initial incident, with the security footage capturing only a portion of what transpired. It allegedly shows Jackson grabbing her around the neck and slamming her onto the stairs.
This is not the first time that Darius Jackson has made headlines in relation to Keke Palmer. In July of this year, he publicly criticized her outfit choice at an Usher concert, more than a year after the alleged altercation over the bikini photo.
Keke Palmer’s mother, Sharon, has spoken out against Darius Jackson and his brother, Sarunas. She claims that Sarunas was aware of Darius’ abusive behavior but failed to take any action.
