American actress and singer Keke Palmer has filed a restraining order against her baby daddy Darius Jackson and requests full custody of their 8-month-old son.
According to Keke, she is filing a restraining order on the grounds of abuse, which includes physical violence and destruction of property.
Keke, who is 30, mentioned that she and Darius, who is 29, had broken up in early October after being together for two years due to the physical and emotional abuse he inflicted on her.
The Nickelodeon star claimed that she has security footage recorded by a CCTV camera in her house from November 5th, where Darius “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.”
She went on to add that there have been many instances of physical violence with Darius which includes “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 our 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
According to her she wants him to complete a 52-week batterer intervention program.
Adding that “It is because of our son, Leo, that I was finally able to end my relationship with Darius once and for all and escape the abuse,” she wrote. “Leo is the most important thing in the entire world to me; he needs and deserves to be safe and grow up in an environment free from violence. Unfortunately, ending my relationship with Darius has not ended his abuse — if anything, he is even more unhinged, volatile and dangerous to both me and our son.”
After she filed, Darius shared a picture of himself and their child on the microblogging platform X with the caption, “I love you, son. See you soon.”
