Keke Palmer files restraining order against ex-boyfriend
Actress Keke Palmer is requesting sole custody of her 8-month-old son Leodis, whom she shares with former partner Darius Jackson after alleging the child’s father has been physically abusive on multiple occasions.
On Thursday, the actress, 30, filed a request for a domestic violence restraining order in Los Angeles, according to documents.
In the California Superior Court filing, Palmer alleges that on Sunday, “Darius trespassed into my home without my knowledge or consent, threatened me, then physically attacked me — lunging for my neck, striking me, throwing me over the couch, and stealing my phone when I told him I was going to call the police.”
She also includes screenshots of what appears to be security footage of a man striking a woman over a sofa. Palmer alleges that Jackson, 30, has abused her multiple times over a 2-year period.
Palmer and Jackson’s relationship woes initially went public in July when Jackson called her out for wearing a fitted, black bodysuit under a sheer dress to watch Usher perform at his Las Vegas Residency.
“We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife and mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is,” Jackson wrote in the since-deleted tweet. “This is my family and my representation. I have standards and morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”
The tweet drew the ire of many social media users who lashed out at Jackson dubbing him insecure and controlling.
