In a recent turn of events, Darius Jackson, Keke Palmer‘s ex-boyfriend and father of her son, Leodis, is refuting allegations of abuse made against him.

Keke recently obtained temporary legal and physical custody of their 8-month-old son, coupled with a restraining order, following an alleged attack by Darius on November 5, 2023, as captured by Keke’s home security system.

Despite the damning evidence, Darius is steadfastly denying all allegations, including instances of physical and emotional abuse, property destruction, threats, and harassment, leading to the end of their relationship in early October.

In an online exchange with Keke’s mother, Sharon Palmer, Darius’ brother, Sarunas Jackson, alluded to Sharon making threats against their family.

TMZ has since released audio of Sharon threatening to put a bullet in Darius’ head if he doesn’t vacate Keke Palmer’s home.
