Sarunas Jackson, the brother of Keke Palmer’s ex-boyfriend Darius Jackson, finds himself embroiled in controversy as the mother of his child has initiated legal action against him. She outlines a range of alleged disturbing behaviors, from emotional volatility to physical abuse, and is seeking to determine a parental relationship.
Alleged Disturbing Behaviors Highlighted
Sarunas Jackson, brother of Darius Jackson, who is Keke Palmer’s ex-boyfriend, is under fire as the mother of his child DomiNque Perry has filed a legal suit accusing him of emotional and physical abuse spanning over five years.
In a petition filed on November 28, DomiNque Perry alleges a series of disturbing behaviors exhibited by Jackson, including emotional volatility, intimidation, bullying, undeserved stress, mental and physical abuse, and controlling and narcissistic behavior.
She had previously filed a petition for determining parental relationship on September 21, which was opposed by Jackson in a filing on November 16.
Perry Alleges Jackson Choked Her
Perry recounted a heated conversation in March 2020, where Sarunas allegedly became violently angry and grabbed her by the throat, choking her.
Their 22-month-old daughter Zen, witnessed the incident, where she began crying. She claimed that in the heated conversation in March 2020, Sarunas blamed DomiNque for their daughter being on the Autism Spectrum, where she claimed Jackson “became increasingly angry and physically grabbed my throat, choking me.”
Shockingly, Perry revealed that Sarunas had blood coming from his mouth due to biting his tongue amid his anger.
‘Vile and Abusive’
Following the allegations, fans voiced their opinions on social media. One user @ayojennyy wrote, “Exactly why he should’ve sat out of the Keke conversation. Those skeletons something crazy.”
This comment referred to Sarunas interjecting himself into the situation between his brother Darius Jackson and Keke Palmer, where Sarunas called his brother “vile and abusive.”
This came after Darius faced accusations of physically abusing his ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, Keke Palmer, where ultimately leaked camera footage of both Jackson and Palmer was shown. Keke’s mother, Sharon Palmer, then called out Sarunas as she called him “phony” and accused him of knowing about the abuse of Keke beforehand.
Sharon also alleged that Sarunas “taught his brother how to be abusive.” Palmer stated:
“I went to Sarunas over a year ago and told him that his brother was abusive to daughter. And he said, ‘Well, I used to be like that too. So now he’s posting on Twitter like he’s this special guy when we know he’s the biggest f*ck boy in Hollywood; he’s disrespectful to women just like his brother.”
It was stated that Keke faced abuse with Darius for at least one year and that the actress filed for a restraining order and custody of their child, Leo Jackson.
In the court documents, photos contained in the restraining order show a man who appears to be Darius Jackson attempting to throw Keke Palmer over a couch. The documents also included when Jackson allegedly broke into Palmer’s home and attacked her, where she stated:
“Trespassed into my home without my knowledge or consent, threatened me, then physically attacked me – lunging for my neck, striking me, throwing me over the couch and stealing my phone when I told him I was going to call the police.”
Battle of the Mothers
In the aftermath, Keke’s mother threatened to harm Darius, stating she would put a bullet in his head. Darius’s mother, upon hearing about the threat, reached out in a text, expressing:
“How are you? I have tried not to get involved in my son’s personal business, but I heard that you are going to put a bullet in my son’s head??? Well, then now we have to involve the authorities because you don’t respect or value yourself, and I can see no value in my son’s life. You might have to kill all of us. I will file a police report on you now.”
In response, Keke’s mother replied:
“Please do not contact me with this ridiculous childish behavior. Your son choked his sister; deal with his anger issues. If he attacks my daughter in her own home, where she pays the bills, he is trespassing, and anything can happen, so he should stay away. You should be very ashamed to have raised a man who fights women.”
In a jarring parallel to the allegations against Sarunas Jackson, rapperGunplayrecently faced legal trouble involving the mother of his child. He was arrested for pulling a gun on her, putting their daughter at risk, and violating a restraining order.
