Keke Palmer has extended her support and love to DomNique Perry, the mother of Sarunas Jackson‘s child. The recent interaction arises in the context of abuse allegations, with Perry claiming in a recent lawsuit that Sarunas choked her.
‘DomiNique Appreciation Day’
On Tuesday, December 5, amid abuse allegations, Keke Palmer took to social media to dedicate a heartwarming message to DomNique Perry. In her post, Palmer wrote:
“Dominique appreciation day, I love you so much and I am so amazed at the beautiful loving person and mother you are. Anyone that sees the way Zenni lights up around you would know that to be true. Zen is the greatest reflection of the kind of person you are. She is funny, kind, patient and smart! All the things I’ve come to know and love you to be. I just wanted to say I’m proud of you and welcome others to say the same. From mother to mother YOU ROCK! It’s not easy but you make it look that way and I appreciate you in my life! Tag a mother that you SEE and want to give props to. We can never support each other too much.”
Palmer’s heartfelt message to Perry comes after she filed a lawsuit against Sarunas, alleging that she has experienced emotional and physical abuse spanning over five years from him.
Perry Responds To Keke
In response to Palmer’s message, Perry expressed:
“Keke… sis… I’m truly in tears… you are such a light that God has placed in my life to guide me. I love my other mama Sharon another ride or die and my confidant. I thank you for just being you. When we met I knew I wanted you around me forever. I love our babies being family. We are connected at the hip now lol. Such a beautiful soul and AMAZING MOTHER you are!!!!! A BEAUTIFUL HARD WORKING MOTHER!!!!!! | got you for life WHATEVER you need. You’re my angel n my sister.” Perry also posted a picture of Palmer with her son, Leo, writing “Keke appreciation post! Sister, you are an amazing force and mother. Our babies are blood bound n so are we. I thank God for you coming into my life the way you did. I knew at @millimoto_s house when we first met we were twin flames. I give you honor as a strong hardworking and beautiful mother that you are. You’re such a light and special gifted soul. Leo is so beyond lucky to have u as his muvaaaaaa! I praise you and lift you up even in your darkest hour. Here for you always.

Keke responded with:
“I love you so so much! I’m so happy to know you and to be a momma. I love Leo so much and I will not only die for him, but I will LIVE!”
The heartfelt exchange between the two women is significant, especially considering the challenges they have individually faced. Palmer recently disclosed abuse she endured from Darius Jackson, the father of her child, over an extended period. Camera footage of the abuse between Palmer and Jackson was leaked, leading to legal action and custody battles.
Fans Chime In
Fans were happy to see the fulfilling moment as one user named @deckedoutbeauty wrote, “I love what Keke did for her. Knowing she was going through her own trials with the other brother that wasn’t getting as much attention and understanding. And Keke highlighted her without bringing up her situation. Class act and I hope their relationship continues to blossom and they can confide in one another.”
Another user named @keymarie504 wrote, “I love to see this. Sisterhood as it should be. We need more of this, we see too much of media tearing each other apart on social media so this is very refreshing.”

Keke Palmer’s Ex’s Brother Sarunas Jackson Faces Abuse Accusations
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, rapper Gunplay recently 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.
