Here's All the Drama Going On With Keke Palmer & Her BF Darius Jackson
Keke Palmer is one of the most talented and beautiful performers in the entertainment industry today. There’s nothing she can’t do. Well, that is, unless you ask her boyfriend Darius Jackson...
Sorry to this man, but unless his name is attached to Palmer, we really don’t know who he is. According to Harper’s Bazaar, the two started dating in the early summer of 2021 and went Instagram official in August of that year. Jackson currently works as a fitness instructor.
Unfortunately, Jackson also seemingly thinks he's in charge of Palmer, as he showed when he put out a Tweet shaming her for a recent outfit she wore.
When Palmer, who gave birth to her first child in February, attended an Usher concert in Las Vegas recently, her boyfriend (at least for now) and the father of her baby, Jackson (who goes by Darius Daulton online) decided that he wanted to put his foot in his mouth and shamed her for her clothing choice.
While retweeting a video of Usher singing to Palmer at the concert, Jackson attempted to shame the singer and actor for her ensemble, which was a black, sheer Givenchy dress that shows a black bodysuit under it.
“It’s the outfit tho…,” he wrote. “You a mom.”
Jackson wasn’t done publicly shaming his partner, though. He doubled down with another tweet once he started receiving criticism.
“We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is,” he tweeted. “This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”
Keke was having none of that public shaming. Shortly after Jackson’s tweets, Palmer posted some pictures of herself in the outfit, looking absolutely stunning, unstoppable, and unbothered.
“I wish I had taken more pictures but we were running late!” she wrote. “I am telling y'all right now, if you haven't seen @usher YOU MUST GO!! HE WAS SO FABULOUS!! Giving theater, Atlanta downnn, tips and tricks and just absolutely iconic. I was truly inspired as a performer. I whooped some ass in spades too! Where is that pic of us all together with the King himself??”
Once he became the laughingstock of the internet, Jackson seemed to deactivate his social media, but his ego wouldn’t let it sit there.
Jackson then retweeted a report saying he deleted his social media with the quote “Y’all thought.” As if he was proving himself right.
Neither Palmer nor Jackson has commented on the matter since.
Now, it seems as though the whole internet is rooting for Palmer to leave Jackson and fly free. She’s one of the most powerful women in America, and she doesn’t need that negative energy clinging to her.
Palmer isn't done being a total boss about this situation. After all of this, she posted a video of her serenading her son with Stevie Wonder's song "Isn't She Lovely." But that's not it! She also announced that she'll be selling shirts that read "Stevie to the bullshit" and "IM A MOTHA."
"To all my moms out there, how did your baby change you?" she captioned the post selling the shirts. "Mine empowered me! On such another level, my perspective changed because when my baby is good I'm great!"
