Keke Palmer reportedly included security camera footage from inside her house of the described abuse.
Keke Palmer has lodged accusations against her son’s father, Darius Jackson, claiming that he was physically and emotionally abusive during their two-year relationship. According to documents obtained by Radar Online, Palmer accompanied her protective order filing with video and photographic evidence.
Palmer submitted her home security footage and testimony to the courts while pushing for full custody of the son she and Jackson share, Leo, and a restraining order petition.
“I am very concerned for Leo’s safety with Darius given his violent, volatile, and jealous nature, comments he has made which have caused me grave concern, and the lack of restraint Darius has already exhibited regarding his temper in front of our son,” the actress said to the court.
She continued to open up about the extent of abuse that she allegedly suffered at the hands of Jackson.
“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.”
Palmer outlined two specific incidents of violent abuse, accompanied by security camera footage of the alleged occurrences.
In a video clip dated November 5, Palmer described an incident that morning when Jackson demanded to take their 8-month-old son to a football game after unannounced showing up at her home. Palmer recounted that she didn’t want the personal trainer to take him, and when she vocalized her opposition, he “lunged at me, grabbing at my neck and face, knocked me [backward] over the couch, stole my phone out of my hands and then ran out of the house.”
Palmer said the police who responded to the situation urged her to file a restraining order after speaking to her and Jackson.
After the multihyphenate showed her former lover a bikini picture to show off her progress in the gym, she said that he became irrationally enraged.
“[Jackson] choked me and body slammed me onto the stairs in my home after becoming violently jealous and irrationally angry…On the drive home, I was worried that we would get into an accident because of how angry he was. Darius spent the rest of the night yelling at me, not letting me sleep, so he could keep yelling at me.”
She expressed that his rage over the bikini picture continued the next day.
“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.”
Palmer attached screenshots of the described moments of the security camera footage taken from inside her home during the abuse and is awaiting a judge to sign off on the protection order.
