Usher Speaks On Rumors He Caused Split Between Keke Palmer & Her Child’s Father, Darius Jackson: ‘I’m Not Mr. Steal Your Girl, That’s Trey Songz’
Usher wants the world to know he’s not the guy out here stealing people’s girlfriends.
R&B sensation Usher has been stealing hearts since he released his first album at the age of 15, however, he has no intentions of taking anybody’s girlfriend.
You may recall that his Las Vegas residency caused a lot of drama this summer for Keke Palmer. The actress was slammed by her child’s father Darius Jackson over her outfit choice for the show. Darius Jackson took to X (formally known as Twitter) to voice his opinion on Keke Palmer’s sheer black dress, which quickly triggered major backlash from the public.
After he aired his feelings online, sources claimed that Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson split. However, the exact status of their relationship remains unclear at this time. During a recent television appearance, Keke told interviewers to mind their business when they tried to fish for details surrounding her love life.
While Keke has chosen to remain quiet on her relationship status, Usher joined the Breakfast Club today (Sept. 26) and finally cleared his name from the brewing drama. The “Confessions” singer had a few things to say relating to the people who have an issue with how he interacts with women who attend his shows. He stated:
“I will tell you I’m not Mr. Steal Your Girl, you know what I’m saying, that’s Trey Songz. I’m the guy who tells you ‘don’t leave your girl around me.'”
When the “Love In This Club” singer was asked if he felt guilty about the drama Keke faced after attending his residency he replied,
“What would the guilt be? That I actually had a great show?”
Usher further elaborated, explaining that there are no issues between him and the “Nope” star. He also pointed out that Keke even starred in his “Good Good” music video after her drama with Darius.
“I mean not only did we get a ‘good good’ call we shot a video too…and the idea was to actually bring good attention…yeah it was to bring good attention to it, good intention and attention. I think that we live in a sensational time…Life is 1D 2D 3D and I think we live in a 2D space so the idea of what this is, man, was just about fun…and just enjoying, you know, that moment and not missing it.”
