Keke Palmer’s mother has defended her daughter and asserted that ex Darius Jackson’s brother knew about his alleged abuse of the actress.
Sharon Palmer went to Instagram on Thursday (Nov. 9) to vent her frustrations with the Jacksons. She took aim at Darius’ brother, Sarunas Jackson, who condemned abuse in a now-deleted tweet, though it wasn’t clear whether he was referring to his brother or Palmer.
“The most disgusting, vile, abusive, manipulative person I have EVER encountered in my entire life…Abuses almost everyone. Y’all will see…just send positive energy to the babies…Any child in the middle of something like this does not deserve it AT ALL. Wow. So damn sad,” Sarunas’ xweet read.
Palmer responded to the Insecure star, seemingly passing himself off as a good guy when he allegedly knew about his brother’s behavior.
“I dare you, mess with my family. Family means everything to me! You and your family act like sociopaths and like the world can’t see it,” Keke’s mother captioned the post. “You are phony and 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!”
“I went to Sarunas over a year ago and told him that his brother was abusive to my daughter, and he said, ‘Well, I used to be like that too,'” she alleged in the video. “So now he’s posting on Twitter like he’s this special guy when we know he’s the biggest f**kboy in Hollywood; he’s disrespectful to women just like his brother.” Sharon then alleged that Sarunas “taught his brother how to be abusive.”
According to The Shaderoom, the actor then fired back at Palmer, alleging that she is lying on his name.
“Quote me: I NEVER ONCE SAID THAT to Sharon. NOT ONCE IN MY LIFE. I have NEVER been abusive to any of the women I ever been involved with. I’m not going to keep on in this circus. But Sharon, the world is about to hear YOUR VOICE. Very soon. And the threats you made to my family. Be well everyone…,” he commented.
