Keke Palmer Not Moving Forward With Domestic Violence Case Against Darius Jackson

The 'Nope' actress and her ex-boyfriend are believed to have settled the case behind the scenes as a hearing for her domestic violence restraining order has been yanked from the Court's calendar.

AceShowbiz - Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson may have called a truce following their legal battle over his alleged domestic violence. The case will no longer go to court, several months after the actress filed for a restraining order against her ex.

According to legal documents filed by Keke's attorney and obtained by The Blast on Friday, May 24, the hearing was initially scheduled for July 16 at 8:30 A.M. However, this date has been taken off the Court's calendar.

Keke's attorney did not share why the hearing will no longer hold, but it indicates that the exes may have settled the cast behind the scenes. The hearing's dismissal also comes five months after the former couple agreed to a court-mandated mediation session.

Keke filed the restraining order against Darius, who is the father of her 1-year-old son, in November 2023, accusing him of frequently abusing her physically and verbally, sometimes in the presence of their minor child. She also accused him of several personal properties, including diaries and prescription eyeglasses.

Darius then hit back by filing his own restraining order against Keke, claiming that she "repeatedly engaged in abusive conduct" and "acted as the primary aggressor" toward him during their two-year relationship.

In December, the two agreed to postpone their domestic abuse lawsuit to attend mediation. They agreed to resume the lawsuit on a "mutually agreeable date," with "all orders contained in the Temporary Restraining Order issued on November 9th, 2023," remaining in force.

"Keke is concerned about her privacy, Leo's privacy and the privacy of her family so her preference is to resolve the situation privately rather than in open court if possible," a so-called insider said at the time. "But if not possible the hearing remains on the calendar and Keke will stop at nothing to ensure a safe and healthy outcome for herself and Leo."

It seems that they have since found common ground through the mediation as Keke has dropped the domestic violence restraining order.
