The horrifying moments when Keke Palmer was beaten by her ex-partner and the father of her child, Darius Jackson, was captured on video by the star’s home security system, according to court documents obtained by DailyMail.com.
She also seems restraining order against Jackson
In addition to seeking sole custody of the couple’s eight-month-old child, Palmer, 30, is also looking for a restraining order against Jackson.
The stills from a security camera appear to show Jackson manhandling the former Nickelodeon star and hitting her while she’s leaned over a couch.
In court filings, Palmer said that Jackson ‘body slammed [her] onto the stairs by my neck.’
That incident stemmed from Palmer showing Jackson a photo of her ‘workout results’ at a friend’s party, sending him into a rage, the star alleges.
Palmer accused Jackson
Palmer accused Jackson of abusing her as recently as November 5, stating that she has security footage to back up claims that he ‘trespassed into my home without my knowledge or consent’ and ‘threatened’ her before ‘lunging for my neck, striking me, throwing me over the couch and stealing my phone.’
The Nope star will allow Jackson visitation rights to their son Leodis.
In response, Jackson posted a picture of him holding his child on X. The caption reads: ‘I love you, son. See you soon.’
In the restraining order request, which she filed in Los Angeles on Thursday, it was noted that the relationship — which began in 2021 — ‘finally ended for good’ early last month ‘primarily due to the physical and emotional abuse inflicted.’
Palmer alleges that Jackson would also ‘love bomb’ her during their relationship.
‘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.
‘If we were at a party or event, and I spoke with one person too long or looked at someone a “certain way,” he would storm off in a rage – telling me I was “sl**” and a “wh**e,” accuse me of cheating on him, and that I did not love him.
‘Darius had a way of gaslighting me to make me feel like I was doing something wrong even though I wasn’t,’ she wrote in documents.
Palmer alleged there have been ‘many instances of physical violence‘ with Jackson, including him ‘hitting’ her in front of their son.
She claims the ‘many instances of physical violence’ included striking her, grabbing her around the neck, breaking her glasses, throwing her belongings in the street, and withholding her car keys to keep her from driving away.
Palmer added that Jackson would spew ‘profanities about me to our son’, and would threaten to kill himself with a gun if she left him.
