Keke Palmer’s Ex Darius Jackson Denies Abuse Allegations
Keke Palmer’s ex-boyfriend Darius Jackson is denying that he physically and emotionally abused the actress during their two-year relationship. On the alleged Nov. 5 incident, Palmer claims that Jackson trespassed into her home and stole her phone. According to gossip site TMZ, a source close to Jackson says he denies all of the allegations.
The source says an argument occurred on Nov. 5 over the custody of the former couple’s eight-month-old son, Leodis. The outlet says that Jackson wanted to hang out with Leo and stopped by Palmer’s house to pick him up, but when he arrived, the child was not there. Allegedly, an argument erupted, and Palmer got her mom, Sharon Palmer, on the phone. Sharon allegedly cursed Jackson out and threatened to put a “bullet in his head.”

Keke filed a restraining order and was granted temporary full custody of Leo last week. Jackson was not arrested for domestic violence at the scene and denies the recent allegations.
According to legal documents obtained by Us Weekly on Thursday (Nov. 9), there were “many instances of physical violence” in the relationship, which were detailed in the restraining order she was granted. It included “destroying my personal property, including diaries and prescription eyeglasses, throwing my belongings into the street, throwing my car keys to prevent me from driving away, hitting [me] in front of our son, spewing profanities about me to our son, threatening to kill himself with a gun if I left him, harassment, and other physical and emotional abuse,” the documents state.
According to the restraining order, one of the alleged incidents took place on the stairs inside her home on Feb. 2022. It was not clear as to why that altercation occurred.
A hearing will occur on Dec. 5, where Jackson can make his case on the situations described in the restraining order.
