Keke Palmer, Darius Jackson breakup Vegas outfit drama
Keke Palmer files restraining order against Darius Jackson and seeks full custody of their son amid abuse allegations.
Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson's relationship has been on the rocks for quite some time before their public fallout in July. The 30-year-old actress, known for her role in "Nope," took a big step by filing for a domestic violence restraining order against Jackson, 29, in Los Angeles. In addition, she also requested full physical and legal custody of their eight-month-old son, Leodis. The court documents detailed multiple instances of physical abuse by Jackson.
According to a source close to the former couple, the problems began long before the public shaming incident in July when Jackson criticized Palmer for her outfit at Usher's Vegas residency. The source revealed that there had been at least one breakup before this incident occurred, indicating that there were underlying issues in the relationship. Despite the Vegas incident, Palmer continued to play it off, even appearing in Usher's music video for his song "Boyfriend" and sharing a video of herself celebrating her 30th birthday with Jackson.
The source also mentioned that the court order came as a surprise, as Jackson and Palmer had appeared amicable in public just a month ago during an event in Los Angeles for KeyTV. The insider noted that there was still "some genuine love" between the two at the event, despite the ongoing issues in their relationship. The filing of the restraining order and the request for custody mark a significant turning point in the public saga of Palmer and Jackson's relationship.
