Keke Palmer won’t let anyone be her fashion police even if it’s her own baby daddy. After Darius Jackson appeared to shame her “booty cheeks” outfit for Usher’s Las Vegas residency show, the “Nope” actress taunted him with more pictures of her wearing the same dress.
The 29-year-old uploaded the photos on Instagram on Wednesday, July 5. In the snaps, she could be seen wearing a black see-through high-neck dress that came with black dots and long sleeves. She covered her assets with a strapless black thong bodysuit with a plunging neckline.
Keke kicked off the caption by writing, “I wish I had taken more pictures but we were running late! I am telling y’all right now, if you haven’t seen @usher YOU MUST GO!! HE WAS SO FABULOUS!!” She added, “Giving theater, Atlanta downnn, tips and tricks and just absolutely iconic. I was truly inspired as a performer. I whooped some a** in spades too! Where is that pic of us all together with the King himself?? @noraradd.”
The post has since been flooded with supportive comments from fans. “YES MAAM!!!! You don’t criticize the mother of your children publicly. End of discussion,” one person wrote, while another replied, “won the idgaf war as u should.” A third chimed in, “You look goodt sis! SORRY TO THIS MAN.”
Keke’s post arrived after her boyfriend Darius criticized her outfit on Twitter. When replying to a tweet that contained a video documenting Keke’s interaction with Usher onstage, Darius wrote, “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom.”
Darius has since been dragged by online users, but he defended himself by saying that his comment was based on 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 penned.
“[And] he gets told how much of a hater he is.” Darius continued. On the reason why he commented on Keke’s outfit, he stated, “This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”
It is unclear whether Keke and Darius, who share a son together, are still together. However, the pair have unfollowed each other on Instagram amid the drama.
