Keke Palmer‘s mother is speaking out following a restraining order that the actress and singer made against her former partner, Darius Jackson. On Thursday (Nov. 9), Sharon Palmer posted an Instagram video in defense of her daughter, specifically directing a message toward Darius and his brother, actor Sarunas Jackson, who the matriarch claimed was well aware of abuse taking place.

“I dare you [to] mess with my family. Family means everything to me! You and your family act like sociopaths… like the world can’t see it. You are phony!” the post’s description read. “I saw you from day one. My daughter is kind and our family treated you with kindness, and this is how you treat it. I won’t take this laying down anymore. I’M DONE!”

Hours prior to Sharon’s post, PEOPLE revealed that Keke filed a restraining order against Darius over allegations of threats, physical violence, and property damage. In addition, she requested sole custody of their 8-month-old son, Leodis.

According to the outlet, Darius exhibited multiple instances of abuse over a two-year period, with the most recent incident being on Sunday (Nov. 5). Following a verbal argument over their child, he “knocked me backwards over the couch, stole my phone out of my hands, and then ran out of the house,” read the California Superior Court filing. The documents were said to have included images from Palmer’s home security footage, a few of which revealed “when Darius body slammed me onto the stairs by my neck” in February 2022.

As REVOLT previously reported, Darius came under fire after he made disapproving tweets about Keke’s outfit after clips of her at Usher’s Las Vegas residency surfaced on social media in July. Keke later collaborated with the “OMG” star in a music video for “Boyfriend,” which was generally perceived as a lighthearted response to the controversy.
