Keke Palmer’s Ex Denies Abuse Allegations, Claims Her Mom Threatened to Kill Him

Keke Palmer‘s ex-boyfriend, Darius Jackson, is denying her allegations of abuse and claims that her mother, Sharon, threatened to kill him.

Sources close to Jackson tell TMZ the latest issue between Keke and him stemmed from an argument last Sunday over the custody of their 8-month-old son, Leo. Jackson claimed he texted Palmer to pick up Leo to watch football, but when he arrived, Leo was not there.

An argument ensued, and Palmer put her mother on the phone. Jackson’s sources claim that Sharon screamed and cursed at Jackson, and at one point, threatened to put a bullet in his head.

Jackson then attempted to wrestle the phone away from Palmer, which is what sources claim is depicted in one of the exhibits Palmer submitted in her restraining order filing last week.


Jackson’s sources say that he absolutely denies abusing Palmer, and that the police responded to the incident and found no probable cause to arrest him for domestic violence. They did not even file a report.

Jackson’s mother, Yhinyer, allegedly caught wind of the bullet to the head threat and texted Sharon about it. The content of the text reads, “Hello Sharon, How are you? I have tried not to get involve in my son’s personal, but I heard that you are going to out a bullet in my son’s head??? Well, then now we have to involve the authorities, because you don’t respect or value yourself and I can No my son’s life.”

“You might have to kill of us. I will file a police report on you now,” the text ended. 

A source close to Keke Palmer tells TMZ Sharon made the threat about the bullet because she feared for her daughter’s safety and couldn’t be there in person to protect Keke. 

In her filing, Palmer alleges Jackson “knocked me backwards over the couch, stole my phone out of my hands, and then ran out of the house.” She said she followed him outside to retrieve her phone and “he nearly hit me with his car.”

Despite Palmer maintaining that the entire incident was “captured by my home security camera,” Jackson’s sources say that he is sticking to his story and denies all allegations of abuse. 

A judge granted Palmer a temporary restraining order, as well as temporary sole custody of their son. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for December 5th, where Jackson will be able to plead his case.
