Darius Jackson’s status as the individual referred to as the “Boyfriend” is now uncertain.
Following Keke Palmer’s collaboration with Usher on his latest track titled “Boyfriend,” an insider has revealed that her estranged partner, Darius Jackson, a fitness instructor and actor, is pursuing new endeavors of his own.
According to a source, Jackson has moved on from the situation. This comes after he garnered attention in July for publicly criticizing Palmer’s outfit on social media. Palmer was seen dancing with Usher during his Las Vegas residency while wearing a sheer dress. Jackson had tweeted, “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom.” He deleted his Twitter account after facing backlash within 24 hours.
Since the incident, the couple, who welcomed their son Leodis Andrellton Jackson in February, has not been seen together. Palmer, on the other hand, has remained engaged with her professional commitments. Despite this, neither party has addressed the status of their relationship publicly. Palmer’s representative declined to provide a statement.
The source indicates that Jackson is now focused on his acting career and is keen on leaving the drama behind him. The source also mentions that they are successfully co-parenting their child despite not residing together, highlighting that physical proximity isn’t necessary for effective parenting.
As for Palmer and Usher’s collaborative track “Boyfriend,” the duo unveiled a teaser trailer for it on YouTube and social media. The teaser features snippets of them together and was shared by both Usher and Palmer. The complete music video, shot in Las Vegas as indicated by the credits on YouTube, premiered the following day. The teaser snippet includes Usher singing the lyrics, “Somebody said that your boyfriend’s looking for me/Oh that’s cool.”
