LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Keke Palmer’s ex-boyfriend and father of her son, Darius Jackson, has denied abuse allegations after the “Hustlers” actress obtained a temporary restraining order against him.
TMZ reported sources close to Jackson saying the feud that led to the restraining order stemmed from an argument over their son, Leo.

The sources explained that on November 5, Jackson texted Palmer to inform her that he planned to pick Leo up from her house so the father-son duo could enjoy a game of football.
However, when he arrived, he did not find Leo there. An altercation ensues and when it escalates, Palmer calls his mother Sharon and puts her on speakerphone.
The source further revealed to the outlet that Sharon was yelling at Darius. At that time, she also allegedly threatened to shoot him in the head. The threat then led to a physical fight when Jackson then tried to snatch her phone.

TMZ reported that when police visited the property, no arrests were made. The sources said there was no probable cause for Jackson’s arrest. They also added that no report of the incident was even filed.
However, following Palmer’s filing of the restraining order, she was granted a temporary restraining order as well as sole custody of Leo. The next hearing is scheduled for December 5.
‘You must have done something to be upset’
Even though Darius Jackson denied the abuse allegations and declared his innocence, netizens were not convinced.
One of the social media users said: “He shouldn’t have fought for HIS property. I bet he won’t reveal what action led to the threat either.”
He shouldn’t have fought for HIS property. I bet he won’t reveal what action led to the threat either.

Someone else said: “How important is their custody dispute over whether he abused her or not?” As if abusers don’t routinely use their children as a weapon to manipulate and control them? If you want to see your child and you I can’t, that’s what the courts are for.
What significance does their custody dispute have to do with whether or not he abused her? As if abusers don’t routinely use their children as a weapon to manipulate and control them? If you want to see your child and you can’t, that’s what the courts are for.

“Such a staged video, typical behavior of an attacker. He will try to annoy us by only giving us a small, singular clip of him pretending that he is not violent. What led to threaten you? and what do many fathers do better? “Pretending to be good fathers on social media,” another Palmer fan commented.

Another explained: “There is no way Keke’s mother would talk to this man like that if this man never assaulted her or did anything for Keke. You must have done something for Keke for her mother to say she’s going to kill you.”
There is no way Keke’s mother would talk to this man like that if this man had never assaulted or done anything to Keke. You must have done something to make his mother say she’s going to kill you.
