Darius Jackson is putting the recent relationship drama with Keke Palmer behind him. A source told PEOPLE that Palmer’s estranged beau is making moves on his own. The news comes amid Palmer’s latest collaboration with Usher for his new music video “Boyfriend.”
“He’s moved on,” the source told the publication.
The two haven’t been seen together since Jackson publicly criticized Palmer over the outfit she chose to wear to an Usher concert in Las Vegas. Nor have they addressed their relationship status.
Jackson and Palmer share one child together – Leo. And they have been making co-parenting work.
“You don’t have to be in the same household to be good parents,” the source said.
According to the source, right now, Jackson wants to focus on his acting career. He is the brother of fellow actor Sarunas Jackson who is known for playing the character Dro on Issa Rae’s “Insecure.”
Jackson ended up in the hot seat last month when he publicly criticized Palmer’s outfit choices via social media after seeing a video of Usher serenading Palmer during his concert. Palmer wore a sheer dress with a body suit underneath to the show.
“It’s the outfit tho…you a mom,” Jackson tweeted.
And despite the instant backlash he began to receive, Jackson continued stood his ground about the incident.
“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. This is my family & my representation. I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case,” he added.
Jackson deleted his Twitter account 24-hours later.
Singer Usher shared his thoughts with PEOPLE about the reactions to his show earlier this month.
“Every night I’m thinking about how the world now is going to react to this moment that I’ll have with whoever I’m choosing to sing to. But it was a pop moment, and it was fun to have at least conversation going and we just keep it light. I don’t see anything negative happening in Las Vegas,” he said.
