Usher Finally Weighs In On The Keke Palmer Relationship Drama

Usher has finally given his two cents on the Keke Palmer and Darius Jackson relationship drama that exploded over the Fourth of July weekend after the former child star attended the singer’s Las Vegas residency and got a little too comfortable during “There Goes My Baby.”


The singer — who just wrapped the first run of his Vegas residency — sat down with PEOPLE to weigh in on matters of the heart and mused that the incident sparked a larger conversation.

Usher Said,

I think everybody’s vision or a version of what they felt happened there just leads you back to just really having a good time in Las Vegas,

he continued,

And that’s what I hope came out of it. Rather, it was a conversation of what was going on with us having fun in front of the audience or conversation about that song.

He continued:

Every night I’m thinking about how the world now is going to react to this moment that I’ll have with whoever I’m choosing to sing to. But it was a pop moment, and it was fun to have at least conversation going and we just keep it light. I don’t see anything negative happening in Las Vegas.

What are your thoughts on Usher’s choosing to sing to one woman during that song? Should it be a big deal?
