While she has not directly addressed the issue, her latest social media posts show that she’s none too happy with him, and is letting him know with not-so-subtle digs…
Keke Palmer Shades Darius Jackson On TikTok
On Friday, singer and actress Keke Palmer shared a somewhat cryptic TikTok video that shot down her boyfriend and baby daddy, Darius Jackson. Jackson, who goes by Darius Daulton on Twitter and Instagram publicly criticized the new mom after she wore a sheer black Givenchy dress with a matching thong bodysuit, showing off her “booty cheeks” at Usher’s “My Way” residency.
“It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom,” he tweeted on Wednesday to a viral video of Palmer being serenaded by the Usher, 44, with a version of his hit “There Goes My Baby.” Palmer is shown giggling and grooving with the R&B crooner and Palmer’s fans felt that Darius was being insecure and slammed him for shaming his baby mama on a public platform, while advising Palmer to “dump his a–!”
Palmer decided to take to TikTok to let off the steam as she broke out into a dance, dressed in a white tank top and gray sweatpants as she mouthed, “You ain’t stopping what’s going on with me, sweetheart. So, if you about to act up, I’m ’bout to link up.”
Fans quickly praised Palmer for rising above all the drama, by letting everyone know who was the BIG BOSS!
Meanwhile, Darius is continuing to stick to his words as he later explained his POV:
We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is.
This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe.
I rest my case.

Keke Palmer Shouts Back: “IM A MOTHA”
After dancing around on TikTok, Palmer also took to Instagram and Twitter to show off her adorable 4-month-old, Leodis Andrellton Jackson, as she sang her version of Stevie Wonder’s song, “Isn’t she lovely, isn’t she wonderful?”
Palmer replaced the “she” with a “he” with her cherub in her lap, singing a few more verses. Her caption seemed to shade Darius again who reminded her she was a mom, as Palmer wrote, “One thing is certain and one thing is true, IM A MOTHA, through and through!”
She also changed the narrative asking mothers, “To all my mom’s out there, how did your baby change you?? Mine empowered me! On such another level, my perspective changed because when my baby is good I’m GREAT! Look at that face! Gratitude galore.”
The funniest thing was that Palmer decided to turn this moment for profit as well, as she introduced two new captioned t-shirts in her collection, letting her fans know that “IM A MOTHA” and “Stevie to the bullsh*t” shirts were now in stock!
Fans seem smitten as one wrote: “Ladies and gentlemen class is in session …lesson 1. Entitled ‘imma get my money regardless’ let me go get this shirt real quick and support the black princess of our generation.”
Meanwhile, Darius Jackson is not taking back anything and the Tweet is still very much on his Twitter feed!
Y’all thought. https://t.co/GzotrflwYc

Fans Coo Over Baby, Applauding This Mother’s Sass!
After Palmer sang, the posts showed pictures of the new shirts and then her with her adorable 4-month-old, prompting fans and celebrities to send her several sweet words.
Fans loved everything about the video, from the baby to the shirts as one wrote, “Ordering the shirt. 2) Having My son was a rebirth for me. 3) You are the narrative and this conversation was so overdue… 4) we are h*lla proud of you. Like #nextlevel proud #imamotha!”
Another chimed, “If this ain’t a boss move idk what is!!!”
Meanwhile, Darius is somewhere in nowhere, his words, not ours, so here’s Palmer, being the boss!
