“Keke Palmer Takes Legal Action Against Ex-Boyfriend Darius Jackson Following Violent Assault
In a recent turn of events, actress Keke Palmer has filed a restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, Darius Jackson, and is seeking sole custody of their eight-month-old son, Leodis. The shocking revelations came to light as court documents obtained by Page Six detail a disturbing incident that transpired on November 5th.
According to Palmer’s account in the court filings, Jackson physically assaulted her, grabbing her neck and pushing her down, before making a hasty exit from her residence. The actress recounted the harrowing experience, stating, “At that point, he lunged at me, grabbing my neck and face, knocked me backwards over the couch, stole my phone out of my hands, and then ran out of the house.”
Surveillance images, submitted as evidence, capture the severity of the attack, showing Jackson striking Palmer with enough force to cause her to fall over a couch. The disturbing pictures underscore the gravity of the situation, revealing the extent of the violence Palmer endured.
In a chilling revelation, Palmer disclosed that Jackson almost hit her with his car as he fled the scene. The court documents suggest that the altercation stemmed from a disagreement over their infant son attending a football game. Palmer expressed genuine concern for Leodis, citing Jackson’s history of violent outbursts, especially when fueled by jealousy.
“Given Darius’ uncontrolled, violent outbursts in the past whenever he became jealous, I became seriously concerned he would hurt our son, even if it was just to hurt me,” Palmer stated in her custody filing.
Additional images from a separate incident show Jackson physically assaulting Palmer as she descended a staircase, slamming her down and leaving her struggling on the steps. The legal proceedings unfold as Palmer seeks protection and sole custody in the face of these disturbing revelations.”
