Keke Palmer Spent Her 30th Birthday With Darius Jackson, And People Are Speechless

Whew, y'all. SO. You remember the drama that happened last month between Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson.

It started after he publicly criticized her for her "booty cheek"-baring outfit at an Usher concert. Keke ended up unfollowing Darius amid the drama, releasing a line of shady mom merch, and then she dropped a song with Usher that seemingly dissed him again. It was a whole thing.

Naturally, people thought they broke up, but! Last night, Darius posted them together during Keke's 30th birthday celebration:

He also called her his "partner in crime" as she smiled and laughed along.

And the gag is — that's not all! Keke also posted a series of stripped-down pics for her birthday, which revealed that she also has a tattoo underneath her butt of Darius's birthday: Jan. 21.

-seeing keke still with her boyfriend warms my heart because y’all was acting so weird over the fact he “don’t got no money” & yes he was out of line but the way y’all place monetary value on respect sucks.

...and pointed out that neither of them had ever said if they'd broken up.

All them think pieces aged horribly because when you REALLY sit and think.. did he or she say they ever broke up. 😏 https://t.co/Xt0WuH66ky

Previously, Darius denied reports suggesting that he had "moved on" from the Nope star without further elaboration.
