Keke Palmer reunites with ‘partner in crime’ Darius Jackson to celebrate 30th birthday


Keke Palmer and her baby daddy, Darius Jackson, reunited on Instagram Live to celebrate the actress’ 30th birthday.

On Saturday, the fitness instructor took to Instagram Live with the “Nope” star as they enjoyed some alcoholic beverages to commemorate her special day.

In the clip, Palmer joked with Jackson about why he talks trash about Virgos, which is her astrological sign.

“My mom’s a Virgo, my brother’s a Virgo, my best friend’s a Virgo, my grandma’s a Virgo,” he said before looking at the actress.

“My partner in crime’s a Virgo.”

Palmer then thanked Jackson, 29, for taking her out on her birthday “as always.”

“I just thank you for making it special for my birthday. That’s so sweet,” she gushed.

Their reunion comes nearly two months after Jackson shamed her for wearing a sexy outfit to an Usher concert.

“It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom,” he tweeted July 5 alongside a viral video of the “True Jackson, VP” alum being serenaded by the R&B crooner with a version of his hit “There Goes My Baby.”

After receiving criticism over his statement, Jackson doubled down on his comment, tweeting: “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. I have standards & morals to what I believe,” he continued. “I rest my case.”

Following Jackson’s controversial remarks, Palmer teamed up with Usher by starring in his “Boyfriend” music video.

The singers appeared to seemingly shade Jackson at the end of the video, as the former Nickelodeon star said, “I am a mother after all,” before flashing a wink to the camera.

Last week, People reported that the couple had called it quits after two years of dating.

“He’s moved on,” a source told the outlet.

However, Jackson refuted the reports, saying that he did not speak to anyone regarding his relationship with Palmer.

“I haven’t spoken to anyone about anything or gave permission to anyone to speak for me,” he wrote on Twitter Aug. 18.
