KeKe Palmer has filed a domestic violence restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, Darius Jackson, alleging that he grabbed her by the neck, knocked her over the couch, and slammed her on the stairs, among other violent acts. She provided still shot images from her security footage inside her home to support her claims.
Palmer and Jackson were in a relationship from June 2021 to October 2023, but things took a turn when Palmer danced with Usher at his Las Vegas residency in July.
Jackson publicly shamed her for the outfit she wore to the concert.

In the restraining order filed by Palmer, she told the courts that she was concerned for her son Leo’s safety, given Jackson violent and jealous nature. She said Jackson has made comments to her that have caused her grave concern.
She told the court that Jackson had been abusive throughout their entire relationship.
“The abuse during our relationship was not just physical, but emotional and manipulative. Darius would “love bomb” me and make me feel like I was the most important woman in the world, only to get extremely distant and cold over a perceived insult to him,” she wrote in the restraining order.
Just before 11 a.m. on November 5, Palmer informed the courts that Jackson showed up at her home unannounced, burst into her bedroom, and demanded to take their son to a football game, as stated in the restraining order filed by Palmer.
Palmer stated that she did not agree before alleging that Jackson “lunged at me, grabbing at my neck and face, knocked me backwards over the couch, stole my phone out of my hands, and then ran out of the house.”

In another incident from February 2022, Palmer recalled an episode in which she stated that Jackson “choked me and body slammed me onto the stairs in my home after becoming violently jealous and irrationally angry over a bikini picture.”
The photos show Jackson with his hands seemingly around Palmer’s neck.
She said she showed him the bikini photo, but that wasn’t satisfying.
“On the drive home, I was worried that we would get into an accident because of how angry he was. Darius spent the rest of the night yelling at me, not letting me sleep so he could keep yelling at me,” she said.
Palmer also stated in her domestic violence order that Jackson slapped her while they were in the bedroom, slammed her to the floor, and also slapped her head from side to side.
“The next morning, he was standing at the bottom of the stairs near the front door, screaming at me as I was coming down the stairs,” Palmer said. “When I was almost at the bottom of the stairs, he grabbed me around the neck and body slammed me back onto the stairs.”
A judge granted Palmer’s restraining order late Thursday afternoon, ordering Jackson to stay 100 yards away from Palmer and their 8-year-old son, Leo.
The judge of the Los Angeles Superior Court also granted Palmer temporary custody of the child until further notice. Jackson is not allowed to visit until further notice.
A hearing has been scheduled for December to determine whether the domestic violence restraining order will be made permanent.
