Keke Palmer Rumored To Be Dating Miami Dolphins Star Duke Riley

On to the next one!

A recent spotting of Keke Palmer has sparked whispers that the actress is dating someone new following the (allegedly) abusive relationship with her son’s father, Darius Jackson, 30. Recently a fan of Keke Palmer posted images online of their chance encounter with the celeb. In the images, the “Nope” star is all smiles as she poses with her supporter. However, as the adorable pictures started to make their way around the internet people quickly noticed a familiar face in the background. If you look in the upper right corner of the first picture the fan shared on X, you can see a man who looks much like Miami Dolphins player Duke Riley, 29.

One person even replied to the images and questioned,

“So was she walking with Duke when you saw her? Was it just them together?”

Of course, there’s been no word yet from the rumored couple if they are actually dating or not. However, they do follow each other on Instagram. In addition, Keke Palmer has shared videos online of her vibing out to Duke Riley’s song “Smooth Like Hitch.” If they are dating, then there’s a chance we might see them out soon on a blended family play date. As previously reported, Palmer, 30, gave birth to her son last February and Duke Riley seems to be a proud dad to three little ones.

Palmer’s rumored new relationship comes after she ended things with fitness enthusiast Darius Jackson in October 2023. The following month Palmer was awarded temporary legal and physical custody of their son and a temporary restraining order after providing evidence to the court of the abuse she allegedly endured from Darius Jackson during their two-year relationship. Jackson has denied her allegations and even claimed she was the aggressive one in the relationship, but his own attempt at receiving a restraining order against his ex was seemingly not approved. His brother’s – “Insecure actor Sarunas J. Jackson – attempt to receive a protection order against Palmer and her mother, Sharon Palmer, was also denied.
