Dating rumors follow a tumultuous few months for Palmer, who split from Jackson in October 2023. Palmer was granted temporary physical and legal custody of the son after she submitted evidence of the alleged abuse she claimed to have suffered during and after their relationship. Palmer was also granted a temporary restraining order against Jackson.

As exclusively reported, Jackson surrendered his firearm to law enforcement in November after being required to do so.

While Jackson denied his ex’s abuse allegations — and claimed Palmer was the aggressor during their two-year relationship — his temporary restraining order request against the actress was denied.

The messy ordeal has spiraled into chaos, with other family members, including Jackson’s brother Sarunas, who accused Palmer of making “foul claims” about him, being dragged into the drama.

Sarunas also sought a temporary restraining order against Palmer, citing her “foul claims” have “caused career damage.”

Like his brother, Sarunas’ TRO request was also denied. While he was given another opportunity to plead his case to the court, he claimed he wasn’t able to locate the actress to serve her.

Palmer’s mother Sharon told that Sarunas’ TRO request is nothing more than an attempt to clout chase and her daughter “never wants to see him again.”
