Keke Palmer is taking legal action, seeking a restraining order against Darius Jackson while also requesting sole custody of their 8-month-old son, Leodis.
In legal documents recently examined by Us Weekly, the 30-year-old actress has detailed a series of disturbing incidents allegedly involving Jackson, 29, throughout their two-year relationship. In a filing on Thursday, November 9, Palmer accuses Jackson of multiple instances of abuse, providing specific details about a troubling November 5 incident.
According to Palmer, security footage from that day captures Jackson trespassing into her home without consent, issuing threats, and physically assaulting her. She claims he lunged for her neck, struck her, threw her over a couch, and stole her phone. Palmer goes on to assert that this incident is just one in a pattern of “many instances of physical violence,” including the destruction of personal property, verbal and emotional abuse, and threats involving a gun.
Palmer asserts that her decision to end the relationship in early October was driven primarily by the physical and emotional abuse she endured. This legal filing follows months of speculation about the couple’s relationship status, with public attention heightened after Jackson made critical comments about Palmer’s attire at a Usher concert in July.

In his remarks on social media, Jackson questioned Palmer’s choice of outfit, emphasizing his views on family representation. The situation escalated as he expressed disapproval of Palmer showcasing certain attire, citing his standards and morals. “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,” he said at the time. “This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”
The legal action now sheds light on the darker aspects of their relationship, with Palmer seeking legal protection and custody for the well-being of herself and their child.
Kodak Black Arrested For Cocaine Possession & Evidence Tampering
On Thursday (Dec. 7), Kodak Black faced legal troubles once again as he was apprehended for cocaine possession and evidence tampering in Plantation, Florida. NBC Miami reported that the Florida native was taken into custody at Broward County Jail, with additional charges of improperly parking or stopping a vehicle and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence.
The incident unfolded when an officer noticed Black’s Bentley SUV parked in a roadway. Upon approaching, the officer discovered Black asleep in the driver’s seat, detecting a strong odor of burnt cannabis coming from the vehicle. Upon further inspection, the officer found a cup in the door smelling of alcohol, as well as “cannabis wrapping paper and suspect cannabis residue” in the center console. After instructing Black to exit the SUV, he nonchalantly mentioned there was only some weed inside.
A while later, the officer observed white powder falling from Black, leading to suspicion of attempting to discard illegal narcotics. The report detailed, “The powder was visible due to the strong scene lights of my patrol vehicle.” Approaching Black, the officer noticed his mouth was “full of white powder,” leading to this arrest. White rock-like substances on the ground were identified as Percocet by Black, but subsequent testing confirmed it to be cocaine.
Black’s recent arrest comes on the heels of his July 2022 arrest, where he faced charges of drug trafficking. Authorities discovered 31 pills, alleged to be oxycodone, in his possession, along with over $70,000 in cash.
Tsu Surf Sentenced to Five Years in Prison and $15,000 Fine After Pleading Guilty to RICO Conspiracy and Weapons Charges
Rahjon Cox, known as Tsu Surf, has been sentenced to five years in prison, three years of supervised release, and fined $15,000 by U.S. District Judge Susan D. Wigenton following his October 2022 federal RICO indictment, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office District of New Jersey.
The charges included one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of possession of firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon. Additionally, the 32-year-old was accused of active involvement in the Rollin’ 60s Neighborhood Crips sect, particularly with the Silverbacc Gorillas (SBG).
Initially, the stakes were even higher, with Surf confronting the possibility of a 30-year prison term. The racketeering conspiracy charge alone carried a maximum sentence of 20 years, and the felon in possession of a weapon charge could lead to an additional 10 years behind bars. Both charges also carried a fine of up to $250,000. However, in a pivotal moment, the DISPARU rapper altered his plea to guilty in April 2023, acknowledging his role in the racketeering conspiracy and admitting to possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon.
The legal shift unfolded during a virtual courtroom session on Thursday, April 27, as Cox pleaded guilty to two counts outlined in the superseding indictment—specifically, Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) conspiracy and possession of firearms and ammunition by a convicted felon.

Diddy Steps Down As Chairman of REVOLT
Sean Combs, widely known as Diddy, has decided to step down from his role as Chairman of REVOLT following accusations of sexual assault by three women. The decision was communicated through an official statement posted on REVOLT’s Instagram page, affirming a commitment to their mission of creating meaningful content for the culture and amplifying the voices of Black people.
“Sean Combs has stepped down from his position as chairman of Revolt,” the statement reads. “While Mr. Combs has previously had no operational or day-to-day role in the business, this decision helps to ensure that Revolt remains steadfastly focused on our mission to create meaningful content for the culture and amplify the voices of all Black people throughout this country and the African diaspora.”
This announcement follows legal action initiated by Cassie, a former Bad Boy artist and Diddy’s ex-girlfriend. Cassie, born Cassandra Ventura, brought forth allegations of control, rape, and prolonged physical abuse spanning over a decade against Diddy (born Sean Combs) on Thursday, Nov. 18. Remarkably, within a swift 24-hour period, the two parties have managed to reach a settlement.
In a statement, Ventura remarked, “I have opted for an amicable resolution, securing terms that provide me with a measure of control. I extend my gratitude to my family, fans, and legal team for their unwavering support.”
Diddy, in response to the amicable resolution, expressed, “I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”
Regrettably, this resolution was shortly followed by accusations from Joi Dickerson-Neal, who accused Diddy of sexual assault and ‘revenge porn’ within a mere 24 hours of settling with Cassie. The complaint details allegations that Combs “drugged, sexually assaulted, and abused” Joi, and fell victim to “revenge porn” orchestrated and disseminated by the rapper.
Adding to the complexity of the situation, a third lawsuit, filed by a Jane Doe, alleges that Diddy and R&B singer Aaron Hall took turns raping her and her friends at Hall’s apartment sometime between 1990 and 1991. A representative for Combs vehemently dismissed this lawsuit as “fabricated claims.”
