Keke Palmer

American actress Keke Palmer’s temporary domestic violence restraining order against her ex-boyfriend, Darius Jackson has been extended for another six months. According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Keke and Darius agreed to postpone their hearing that was scheduled for Tuesday, 9 January, which in turn extended Keke’s restraining order.

The media outlet has reported that the new court date is now set for the 16 July. This is when the restraining order is also set to expire. The documents also revealed that Keke and Darius postponed their hearing because they are said to be “engaging in mediation before a private judge”.Keke Palmer was first granted a temporary restraining order on the 10 November 2023 after she accused Darius Jackson, who is the father of her son, of physical and verbal abuse.

In her initial lawsuit complaint Keke detailed two alleged assaults, an alleged physical attack that occurred took place on the 5 November after she expressed that she did not want their then 8-month-old son, Leodis “Leo,” to attend a football game.

“At that point, he lunged at me, grabbing at my neck and face, knocked me backwards over the couch, stole my phone out of my hands and then ran out of the house”, she noted in her filling.

To support her claims the actress supplied security camera images and videos of the attack by Darius Jackson. As a result, Keke Palmer requested for sole custody of her son Leo, to which she was temporarily granted.

Darius Jackson also applied for his own restraining order in late December, alleging that Keke had been “verbally and physically abusive” during their relationship. He also labelled the actress as the “primary aggressor”.
