About a month and a half after Darius Daulton Jackson caught heat for critiquing the outfit that Keke Palmer wore to an Usher show, the Alice actress is set to serve as the leading lady in the singer’s upcoming music video!

Keke & Usher Came Thru With The Promo: “When Fantasies Become Reality…”
On Tuesday (Aug. 15), Keke shared a promo clip for Usher’s “Boyfriend” video, which will premiere on Wednesday (Aug. 16) and features her front and center.
We should add that Usher shared the same snippet and added, “When fantasies become reality…” Oop!
While much else wasn’t shared about the forthcoming video, fans got all the context they needed to tie the cameo to Keke’s recent situation with Darius — the father of her infant son, Leodis Andrellton Jackson.
As The Shade Room previously reported, Darius Daulton caught some major backlash after taking to social media to call Keke Palmer out for her Usher outfit.
“It’s the outfit tho… you a mom.”
Eventually, Darius briefly deactivated his Twitter, and people think Keke’s gettin’ her lick back by starring in Usher’s “Boyfriend” video.

People continued cutting up beneath The Shade Room‘s Instagram upload about the matter.
One user going by @thecurlymonae wrote, “Keke baby daddy sliding down the wall listening to B2K right now.”
Additionally, a person with the username @ziggychanler commented that Usher “is the villain we need to be talking about.”
Not everyone was on Keke Palmer’s side, though, as another user going by @thebosspalace shared, “Unpopular opinion: I don’t think her bd deserves this. They seem really happy before the internet drama, thought they would be married one day.”
What do you think of the situation, Roomies?
