Keke Palmer Pokes Fun At ‘Boyfriend’ Drama In New Usher Music Video



Keke Palmer and Usher are poking fun at all the drama they caused following their dance in Las Vegas.

In case you missed it, clips of the pair dancing to Usher’s “There Goes My Baby” during one of his Las Vegas residency concerts became a hot topic online after Palmer’s partner, Darius Jackson, publicly criticized her for the revealing outfit she wore to the concert. “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom,” he wrote about Palmer.

Folks on Twitter had a field day dragging Jackson, prompting him to delete his account. Now Palmer has seemingly responded to all the chatter — starring in the “Yeah” singer’s new music video — cheekily titled “Boyfriend.”

The visuals dropped on Wednesday after both the R&B hitmaker and the Hustlers actress began teasing the sultry song that repeats, “Somebody said that your boyfriend was looking for me / Oh that’s cool,” on Tuesday.

The actress and singer stuns with blue highlights in her hair as she and a group of women get ready to go out in a lavish Sin City hotel room. While she doesn’t sing on the track itself, at one point in the video when the music stops while the women are in a hotel elevator, the former Nickelodeon star shows off her vocal chops by briefly singing along to Usher’s “U Remind Me.”

Palmer then proves she’s worthy of her own Vegas residency by busting out dance moves in the casino — even dueting with the “OMG” singer himself in matching moto jackets and jeans.

“Yes, yes. Hello?” she answers her phone, as she wakes up in a hotel bed at the end of the video. “What time is it? Damn it! I missed the show.”

“I’m so tired,” she continues, before glancing into the camera to say, “I’m mother, after all,” with a wink.

The line seems to be a nod to Jackson’s remarks in his since deleted Twitter post.

“We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is,” he said. “This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”

Jackson and Palmer have been dating since 2021 and welcomed their first child, son Leo in February. A source tells PEOPLE the fitness instructor has now “moved on” and is no longer in a relationship with the actress, 29.

The source added that he’s busy focusing on an acting career and would like to put the drama behind him. They also shared that the couple is working on co-parenting their son, saying, “You don’t have to be in the same household to be good parents.”
