Keke Palmer, 30, has taken legal action against Darius Jackson, 29, by filing for a restraining order and sole custody of their 8-month-old son, Leodis. Allegations of multiple instances of abuse spanning their two-year relationship were detailed in court documents submitted on Thursday, November 9.
Palmer’s claims include a particularly harrowing incident on November 5, supported by security footage, where Jackson allegedly trespassed into her home without consent. According to Palmer, he proceeded to threaten her, leading to a physical altercation involving aggression towards her and theft of her phone.
In the court documents, which were obtained by Page Six, Palmer alleged that there have been “many instances of physical violence” with Jackson, 29, that include “destroying [her] personal property,” “throwing [her] belongings into the street,” “throwing [her] car keys to prevent [her] from driving away,” “hitting [her] in front of [their] son,” “spewing profanities about [her] to [their] son,” “threatening to kill himself with a gun if [she] left him,” “harassment” and “other physical and emotional abuse.”
Jackson, however, then posted a cryptically tweet “I love you, son. See you soon” on X on Thursday.
