Keke Palmer Opens Up About Going Instagram Official With Her Boyfriend

"It is what it is."

Keke Palmer is opening up about her boo Darius Jackson. The singer/actress visited the Tamron Hall Show and spilled some tea on her relationship. While she didn't address when they started dating, she was transparent about why she decided to go public with their relationship.


"I'm really one of those people that very much so keep it on the Beyoncé tip of just keeping everything lowkey," she said. "I think the reality is it's just it became more difficult to hide that. We spend all this time together and he's really my closest friend so it just becomes a thing where I'm not gonna hide something that makes me happy. So, it is what it is. It's not gonna be everything you see, my job is my job, but at the end of the day, hey, this is somebody that is important to me."

She even joked about their zodiac signs not matching up on the compatibility chart.

Keke is a Virgo and Darius is an Aquarius. "He's an Aquarius. Isn't that crazy?" she said. "It's a random matchup. He got some Taurus in that chart so that must be the balance."

But while their astrological signs may not seem like a match in the stars, they balance each other out in other ways. Keke works in entertainment, but Darius doesn't and that's one of the things she likes about him.

"I think it's the authenticity. I've always been somebody that hasn't wanted too much industry stuff in my life so he's very industry adjacent meaning he understands it but that's not what he's about."

She continued, "I think that also helps a lot too for the comfortability, but I mean, I don't know how to explain it. It's one of those things like I said is surprising to me as well, but I'm 28, I'm still learning so we'll see how it goes."

This appears to be the first time that the Southern Belle Insults author has gone public with a relationship. Keke has become known for her talented acting skills, singing, and vibrant personality that always shines through during her interviews. But she shares that she is happy and OK to also focus on having a love life.

"In this era right now, it's very much popular to be like, 'oh I don't care.' It's become very popular to the point where it does end up making you feel like you're not opening yourself up to it (love) and I think that's where it got to the point for me," she said.

"If I'm happy why don't I just be happy? Who am I trying to hide anything from or impress or what is the idea of it all that I'm trying to coerce? At the end of the day, I'm still me with or without a partner."

But being open about her relationship doesn't give others permission to get in her business. When it comes to having a successful relationship, she shares this philosophy.

"Quiet the noise and find the truth in your relationship."

Period!
