Keke Palmer Teases Appearance In Usher’s New Video A Month After Boyfriend Drama


Keke Palmer seemingly remains unbothered by the internet drama involving her boyfriend, Darius Jackson, who publicly mom-shamed her last month.

On Tuesday, the “Nope” actor shared a clip on Instagram that teased her appearance in Usher’s music video for his song “Boyfriend,” due out Wednesday.

In a 30-second YouTube preview of the video, Usher seems to be getting ready for a performance, while Palmer (a gifted singer in her own right) prepares to go out with friends. “Somebody said that your boyfriend’s looking for me,” Usher croons mischievously. “Ooh, that’s cool.”

The recent real-life drama between Palmer and Jackson also involved an Usher performance.

Jackson was widely slammed for mom-shaming Palmer after he criticized the “Nope” actor for wearing a sheer Givenchy dress with a black bodysuit during an Usher concert in Las Vegas.

He shared a video on Twitter (now known as “X”) of Usher serenading Palmer. In a since-deleted tweet, Jackson wrote: “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom.”

He doubled down in a follow-up tweet: “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.”

“This is my family & my representation,” he continued. “I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”

Palmer didn’t directly address the tweets ― at least publicly ― but she has dropped hints on social media that she’s unbothered by Jackson’s disapproval. Shortly after his tweets, Palmer posted several pictures of her outfit on Instagram, writing that she wished she’d “taken more pictures.”

The current status of Palmer and Jackson’s relationship is unclear. The two welcomed a son, Leodis, in February.

Last week, Usher weighed in on the whole imbroglio, telling People that it was simply “a pop moment.”

“It was fun to have at least conversation going and we just keep it light,” he said. “I don’t see anything negative happening in Las Vegas.”
