Keke Palmer’s mom, Sharon Palmer, is responding to a now-deleted post by Sarunas Jackson, with claims that he mistreats women similar to his brother.
This all started on Thursday when it was reported that Keke filed for a protective order against her son’s father, Darius Jackson.
She is also seeking sole legal and physical custody over their 8-month-old son, Leodis “Leo” Andrellton Jackson.
According to Page Six, it was unclear as to why Keke decided against shared custody until Us Weekly reported that Palmer had filed a restraining order against Darius, with claims that he “trespassed into [her] home without [her] knowledge or consent, and threatened [her] before] lunging for [her] neck, striking [her], throwing [her] over the couch and stealing [her] phone,” on November 5, 2023.
She said, “The police were called and arrived before Darius left. After interviewing me, my sister, and Darius, they made him leave and warned him not to come back.”
Additionally, Keke claimed to have video evidence of him attacking her inside her home after he got jealous about a bikini photo in February 2022.
“He choked me and body slammed me onto the stairs in my home after becoming violently jealous and irrationally angry over a bikini picture,” she said.
“Darius spent the rest of the night yelling at me, not letting me sleep so he could keep yelling at me. In the bedroom, he slammed me on the floor and slapped my 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. When I was almost at the bottom of the stairs, he grabbed me around the neck and body slammed me back onto the stairs.”
She further claimed that there were also “many instances of physical violence,” with her son’s father allegedly “destroying [her] personal property, including diaries and prescription eyeglasses, 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.”
“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 said.
Following Keke’s filings, Darius posted a picture with his son on X that read: “I love you son, see you soon.”
When the news broke, Darius’ brother, Sarunas, shared a post, which was later deleted and reposted, with claims that Keke was a disgusting person.
He tweeted, “The most disgusting, vile, abusive, manipulative person I have EVER encountered in my entire life… Abuses almost everyone. Y’all will see.. Just send positive energy to the babies… Any child in the middle of something like this does not deserve it AT ALL. Wow. So damn sad.”
However, Keke’s mom caught wind of his now-deleted post and took to social media to slam the actor in a now-viral video.
“I’ve never done anything like this. I’ve been in this business for 22 years. I’ve seen a lot of stuff, but I can’t help myself. For Sarunas Jackson to post on his Twitter the ridiculous stuff that he’s posting when he knows that his brother is abusive… I went to Sarunas over a year ago and told him that his brother was abusive to my daughter, and he said, ‘Oh, well, I used to be like that too.’ What?! So now, he’s posting on Twitter like he’s this special guy? We know he’s the biggest f**k boy in Hollywood. He’s disrespectful to women, just like his little brother. He taught his little brother how to be abusive. So, he doesn’t get to act like he’s this special guy. No, you’re a f**k boy, and you’re a part of the problem!”
According to reports, Keke has confirmed that she and Darius have not been together since early October.
