Palmer and Jackson, who began dating in 2021, share their son Leodis, whom they welcomed in February of this year.

Regarding the incident that occurred on Sunday, Palmer alleged that Jackson had arrived at her home to pick up Leodis, however, the baby was spending time with her family. The actress claimed that an argument then broke out and Jackson allegedly "knocked me backwards over the couch, stole my phone out of my hands, and then ran out of the house."

Palmer added that she followed Jackson outside where she claimed "he nearly hit me with his car."

The pair's relationship issues first became public in July, when Jackson called Palmer out on social media for wearing a fitted, sheer dress to an Usher concert in Las Vegas.
