Keke Palmer is taking a moment to shed light on her life and prove that “reality TV” isn’t always reality.
Over the weekend, the multi-hyphenate took to Instagram to share a video of her caring for her son, whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Darius Jackson, and included a very telling caption about her current situation.
“When reality tv makes everyone believe all celebrities are just one big marketing strategy and scheme but my life is truly unraveling at the seams and I just wear trauma like a Dolce & Gabbana coat because Sharon didn’t raise no bi—,” reads the text over the video, which is set to Nicki Minaj’s Beam Me Up Scotty cut “Seeing Green.”
The 30-year-old’s video comes amid a series of events involving her ex. The pair split earlier in the year after he made a comment on X about Palmer’s attire while attending Usher’s Las Vegas residency. Last month, she was granted a restraining order against Jackson that alleged physical and emotional abuse during their two-year relationship. She maintains sole custody of their 9-month-old son, Leodis.
Palmer seems to be doing her best to keep a sense of humor about everything. In the caption of the video, she wrote, “Alexa, Play Mary J: MY LIFE,” with a few crying laughing emojis.
The actress’ celebrity friends came out to support her in the comments section, with SZA writing, “Exactly she’s an icon and we praying and riding for you regardless !!” Teyana Taylor even shared a reference to Palmer’s “Keep a Bag” nickname, adding, “MY GURLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL … and add a good good purseeeee to make the garments pop cause you in ya bagggggggggg sis!!!”
