Meet Sharon Palmer, Keke Palmer’s Mother
Actress Keke Palmer’s mother Sharon Palmer has made it loud and clear on Instagram that her family is not to be messed with. Sarunas Jackson, Darius’s brother, turned to social media shortly after Keke accused Darius of abuse in a restraining order issued on Thursday, November 9, 2023.
“The most disgusting, vile, abusive, manipulative person I have EVER encountered in my entire life … Abuses almost everyone. Y’all will see,” Sarunas in a since-deleted post via X (formerly Twitter). “Just send positive energy to the babies. Any child in the middle of something like this does not deserve it AT ALL. Wow. So damn sad.”
Sharon fired back at Sarunas in a Thursday Instagram video: “For Sarunas Jackson to post on his Twitter the ridiculous stuff he’s posting when he knew his brother was abusive. I went to Sarunas over a year ago and told him that his brother was abusive to my daughter and he said, ‘I used to be like that too.’ What?”
“I went to Sarunas over a year ago and told him that his brother was abusive to my daughter, and he said: ‘Oh well, I used to be like that too,'” Sharon claimed before slamming Darius’s brother as a bad influence and a terrible person to women.
Sharon went on to say that his brother was taught how to “be abusive to women” by “f—kboy” Sarunas, well known for playing Alejandro “Dro” Peña on the television series Insecure. She went on, “So, he doesn’t get to act like he’s this special guy. No, you’re a f—kboy and a part of the problem.”
But Sarunas denied Davis’ accusations. “I never once said that to Sharon, Not once in my life,” Saraunas wrote via Instagram comment obtained by The Shade Room. “I have never been abusive to any of the women I have ever been involved with. But Sharon, the world is about to hear your voice. And the threats you made to my family.”
Sharon later responded via an IG post, “I dare you, mess with my family. family means everything to me! you and your family act like sociopaths and like the world can’t see it. you are phony! and I saw you from day one, my daughter is kind and our family treated you with kindness and this is how you treat it. I won’t take this laying down anymore I’M DONE.”
Keke had recently filed for exclusive custody of the former couple’s 8-month-old baby, Leodis Andrellton Jackson, in an effort to formally end her relationship with Darius. Six months prior to their breakup, in February, the couple welcomed the young child into their lives. The 30-year-old actress requested “legal” and “physical” custody of her child, with visitation rights for her ex-boyfriend, according to court documents acquired by The Blast.
Keke and Darius dated from August 2021 until October 2021. Following several attempts at couples therapy, they ended their relationship.
“I was concerned for Leo’s safety after Darius became very frustrated with him when Leo was crying while Darius changed his diaper,” Keke claimed in the court docs. “Darius started getting rough with Leo physically and I stepped in to make sure Darius would not hurt him. Darius finally let go and Leo was not harmed, but as I was holding Leo trying to comfort him and finish changing his diaper, Darius hit me in the head before storming out of the room.”
Is Sharon Palmer Still Married To Larry Palmer?

Sharing titbits about their relationship Sharon shared back in 2012, “Twenty-six years ago this smiley dude walked into my drama class, he had a Jerry Curl like Stoney Jackson, I said to myself, ” he’s kinda cute, but he needs to get rid of that curly kit look”. Two months later that same guy walked into the green room and asked me out, he had lost the curl and had nice waves going along the front of his hair wow what an improvement.”
They were together for 2 years before tying the knot.
On their 35th wedding anniversary in April 2023, Sharon posted on her Facebook, “35 years today with my best friend, honestly, I don’t recall any bad days with you, yes we had broke days, we had some sick days, but mainly all good days and for that I am so thankful to God. Love you Lawrence ( no middle ) Palmer today, tomorrow, always Larry Palmer.”
The couple welcomed their children on 26 August 1993. In order to follow her goals, Sharon and Larry quit their secure employment and relocated to a one-bedroom apartment in Los Angeles.

Sharon Palmer Job
Sharon Palmer serves as a “momager” of Keke Palmer. She said in an interview with TODAY that mutual respect is what makes their business relationship work.
Although she is aware that some business executives dislike working with parents, Sharon is a mom who taught Keke how to walk and talk, thus she finds it difficult to “not be passionate” about her child.
After being rejected from a nine-year-old “The Lion King” play, Keke’s tenacity inspired Sharon. That gave Sharon hope that her daughter would be able to handle the difficulties of the entertainment world, according to Sharon. In an interview, she became extremely upset as she explained why she allowed her daughter to pursue a career in entertainment at such a young age.
A friend, who had funded her daughter’s university education, urged her to bring Keke to commercial auditions. Sharon added, “I did it so she could go to college. I never expected any of this I didn’t do it for money or fame […] I wanted my kids to go to college. And I wanted them to have a better life.”
Per her Facebook, she went to Alan B. Shepard and also studied at the American Musical & Dramatic Academy.
