POV: You’re Keke Palmer's Ex-BF Text-Spiraling While Watching Her Usher Music Video

If you ever doubted Keke “sorry to this man” Palmer would get the last laugh, then, baby, you haven’t been paying attention. Let me catch you up. You may recall last month, Keke’s now ex-boyfriend Darius Jackson publicly ranted about “morals,” “standards,” and the roles of mothers in reaction to Keke having a fun vamp-y moment at Usher’s Vegas Residency.  

Instead of this man, I don’t know, focusing on getting a job, he publicly shamed the mother of his child and threw her to the trolls of the internet, free to be criticized by other men without jobs, AKA “podcasters.” In response, Keke is deliciously getting her revenge in the most mic-drop of ways: She and none other than Usher himself released a winky music video for his new single. 

Reports are saying the two have now “parted ways” likely because someone had the same emotional bandwidth as their newborn son. But before he packed his bags and moved back into the Planet Fitness he crawled out of, here is what we can only imagine Keke’s texts from Darius looked like while he watched the “Boyfriend” video for the first time…
