Keke Palmer’s mother, Sharon Palmer, spoke out about her daughter’s relationship with Darius Daulton Jackson on Nov. 9. This was the same day Keke petitioned the court for a restraining order against him and sole custody of their son, Leodis.
In her video statements, Keke Palmer’s mother name-dropped Darius’ brother, Sarunas Jackson. Not long after, the “Insecure” actor stepped into The Shade Room’s comments with a response. He accused Sharon of making “threats” against his “family.”
Keke Palmer’s Mother Says She Told Sarunas Jackson His Brother Was Abusive
On Thursday, Sarunas Jackson posted and deleted allegations of an unnamed person being “the most disgusting, vile, abusive, manipulative person” he knows.
“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,” the actor posted.
Shortly after, Keke Palmer’s mother called his statements “ridiculous” in a video post. She added that she made him aware of Darius’ alleged abuse towards Keke.
“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 use to be like that too.’ What? So now he’s posting on Twitter like he’s just a special guy when we know in Hollywood he’s disrespectful to women just like his brother. He taught his brother to be abusive,” Sharon said.

Sarunas stepped into The Shade Room comments after and denied having a conversation with Keke Palmer’s mother.
“I NEVER ONCE SAID THAT to Sharon. NOT ONCE IN MY LIFE. I have NEVER been abusive to any of the women ever been involved with. I’m not going to keep on with this circus. But Sharon, the world is about to hear YOUR VOICE. Very soon. And the threats you made to my family,” he wrote.

Keke’s Petition Reveals Abusive Incidents With Darius Daulton Jackson
On Friday (Nov. 10), Radar Online first reported an LA judge had granted Keke Palmer sole custody of Leo and a temporary restraining order against Darius. Sarunas’ younger brother cannot come within 100 yards of Keke Palmer or the eight-month-old for the time being. The judge set a December court date to decide the permanent status of the case.
Keke Palmer’s petition gave an insight into their relationship as far back as February 2022. In that instance, Jackson allegedly got jealous over a bikini photo. The result, Keke said, was a night of violence in her bedroom, with him knocking her head “side to side” and “slamming” her against the stairs the following morning.
Keke says their relationship ended in October due to her abusive experiences with Darius Jackson. She revealed that he had destroyed her personal property and verbally abused her with profanity, including in front of their son.
On November 5, he allegedly “trespassed” her home. After she declined his request to take Leo to a football game, Keke says he started “screaming.” Afterward, home footage shows he physically assaulted her.
The judge has reportedly ordered Jackson to turn over a handgun in his possession to local law enforcement. Palmer revealed that he had previously threatened to commit self-harm if she left him.
Darius Jackson Shares Post About His Son Amid Abuse Allegations
These revelations come months after Darius Jackson was trolled online for critiquing Keke Palmer’s outfit at an Usher concert. After the incident, Keke portrayed the singer in his “Boyfriend” music video. He seemingly shut down reports of them splitting up in August. By September, Keke Palmer made it clear she wasn’t open to sharing anything more about her relationship with her son’s father.
As of Friday, she has not commented online about the judge’s ruling or her mother’s comments. Darius Jackson, however, shared a photo with Leo via X on Thursday. He wrote, “I love you, son. See you soon” in the post.
He has not reacted to Keke Palmer’s mother and her interaction with Sarunas.
