KeKe Palmer’s Ex Darius Jackson Seeking Restraining Order: REPORT

Keke Palmer’s ex, Darius Jackson, has filed a restraining order against the Nope star for alleged abuse.

The Hustlers actress, 30, was recently granted a restraining order against her ex-partner – with whom she has nine-month-old son Leodis – over alleged abuse at the hands of Jackson, and now he’s seeking a protective order against Palmer as he claims she was “verbally and physically abusive” to him.

In court documents obtained by the New York Post’s Page Six column, Jackson claims Keke “punched” him in an “agitated and aggressive” manner at a party in 2021.

He went on to name a friend, Lenoria Addison, who he claims tried to stop the alleged altercation.

His evidence is a string of texts from Palmer allegedly apologizing for hitting him.

One message read: “I am sorry for hitting you.”

Another alleged incident took place in October of that year when Jackson claims Palmer “violently gripped” his arm and demanded that he didn’t leave the house.

He wrote in the documents: “We exchanged a text about this incident, and I sent her a photo of the marks she left on my arm that night.”

He also supplied the photograph of the marks on his arms that he claims were caused by his ex’s grip.

In the texts about the incident, Palmer is said to have declared: “We’re DONE.”

The former NFL player, 29, also claims that in March this year, Palmer was verbally abusive to him when a drain in their bathroom got blocked and that she allegedly continued to rant at him via email after he walked away.

He said: “I tried to de-escalate the situation and she became more enraged. I left the house to avoid further conflict. That night, she sent me several emails.

I went upstairs to ask [Keke] where he was.

“She was on the phone with her mother on speaker and refused to answer where Leodis was.

“Her mother immediately directed threats and profanities at me. I recorded the conversation because I could sense that [Keke] was becoming verbally and physically abusive.”

A transcript of a recording allegedly of Palmer’s mom, Sharon Palmer Jackson, calling him a “punk” who comes from a family with “mental problems” was also supplied as evidence.

Darius recently claimed he’s “repented” and been “baptized” after Palmer accused him of domestic abuse.

When she filed for her restraining order, which she was granted, the actress claimed she feared for the safety of her son after Jackson allegedly got “rough” with the baby.
