• Keke Palmer’s ex accuses her of physical, verbal, and emotional abuse
• Darius Jackson addresses Keke Palmer’s restraining order filing
• Palmer accused Jackson of physically and emotionally abusing her in documents filed in a Los Angeles court
Here is what happened:
Keke Palmer’s ex, Darius Jackson, has responded to her allegations of “physical and verbal abuse” in a court filing. He has accused Palmer of being “the primary aggressor” in their relationship and has detailed instances of alleged abusive conduct by Palmer, including punching, hitting, and choking. Jackson also stated that he changed his number to avoid further harassment and threats from Palmer.
Palmer had obtained a temporary domestic violence restraining order against Jackson in November, expressing fear for her and her son’s well-being. She accused Jackson of becoming “even more unhinged, volatile and dangerous” post their split and alleged that his abusive behavior was rooted in jealousy and insecurity.
Palmer’s court filing included detailed accounts of physical and emotional abuse throughout their relationship, as well as instances of gaslighting. Jackson’s response comes in the wake of Palmer filing for sole custody of their son, Leo.
The back-and-forth accusations between Palmer and Jackson have shed light on a tumultuous and allegedly abusive relationship, bringing attention to issues of domestic violence and emotional abuse.
