Known for her various acting performances, music releases, and her role as the main character “True Jackson” in the Nickelodeon show “True Jackson, VP,” Lauren Keyana “Keke” Palmer has seen a lot of success in her life so far. Here are some key points you’ll want to know about this young, multi-talented singer & actress.
Born on August 26, 1993, in Harvey, Illinois, to Sharon and Larry Palmer, Keke is currently 27 years old.
Although Palmer would likely easily stand out among all the other beautiful Black women who are looking to find an affectionate partner here, she is currently in her ‘offline relationships’ mode. It made the news when she tried the celebrity dating app “Raya” for a few months; however, Palmer seems to prefer to keep her dating life offline and private. Interestingly, Keke prefers to date non-celebrities. She’s been quoted as saying, “it’s easiest when you don’t date someone with the same career.” Palmer isn’t specifically opposed to dating apps, but she finds it hard to feel “authentic” when dating online, so she prefers to date offline instead. In fact, most of Palmer’s romance seems to happen offline since she rarely posts about her love life at all. Keke hasn’t yet specified her sexuality, instead of leaving it at “I’m gonna follow my own feelings and my own heart.”
Keke has two parents, Sharon and Larry Palmer. Former actors themselves, they now hold full-time jobs as a polyurethane company employee & a high school special education teacher. She also has three other siblings: Lawrence Palmer, Lawrencia Palmer, & Loreal Palmer. Loreal is Keke’s older sister and helped write the songs “Not in Your Video” and “Bottoms Up.” Lawrencia, Keke’s younger sister, is currently working her way through college at Florida A&M University. Very little is known about Lawrence.
Palmer has had a varied but widely successful career as an actress. Her career began in 2004 with her role in “Barbershop 2: Back in Business”. She went on to win a Black Reed Award & an NAACP Image Award for her role in “Akeelah and the Bee”; in 2008, her career really took off when she was cast as the main character in “True Jackson, VP.” Since then, she’s been in numerous movies and TV shows, such as the horror-comedy series “Scream Queens” and “Strahan and Sara.” More recently, she’s even hosted (and performed in) the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards.
One of the fun facts about famous people that most people want to know is exactly how much these celebrities make – their net worth. Keke Palmer doesn’t disappoint; although certainly not one of the richest celebrities around, Keke still has far more money than your average person, with recent estimates hovering around the $7.5 million mark.
