On Tuesday, the “Nope” actor shared a clip on Instagram that teased her look in Usher’s music video for his tune “Boyfriend,” due out Wednesday.
In a 30-second YouTube preview of the video, Usher appears to be preparing for a efficiency, whereas Palmer (a gifted singer in her personal proper) prepares to exit with buddies. “Somebody said that your boyfriend’s looking for me,” Usher croons mischievously. “Ooh, that’s cool.”
The current real-life drama between Palmer and Jackson additionally concerned an Usher efficiency.
Jackson was broadly slammed for mom-shaming Palmer after he criticized the “Nope” actor for sporting a sheer Givenchy gown with a black bodysuit throughout an Usher live performance in Las Vegas.
He shared a video on Twitter (now often called “X”) of Usher serenading Palmer. In a since-deleted tweet, Jackson wrote: “It’s the outfit tho.. you a mom.”
He doubled down in a follow-up tweet: “We live in a generation where a man of the family doesn’t want the wife & mother to his kids to showcase booty cheeks to please others & he gets told how much of a hater he is.”
“This is my family & my representation,” he continued. “I have standards & morals to what I believe. I rest my case.”
Palmer didn’t immediately tackle the tweets ― at the very least publicly ― however she has dropped hints on social media that she’s unbothered by Jackson’s disapproval. Shortly after his tweets, Palmer posted a number of photos of her outfit on Instagram, writing that she wished she’d “taken more pictures.”

Final week, Usher weighed in on the entire imbroglio, telling Those that it was merely “a pop moment.”
“It was fun to have at least conversation going and we just keep it light,” he stated. “I don’t see anything negative happening in Las Vegas.”
