Skai Jackson got a restraining against her crush's ex-girlfriend. 

It all began when Skai Jackson commented on rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s Instagram, saying “Can somebody hook me up with YB, he just so fine to me...Lord.” 

YoungBoy’s ex-girlfriend Danielle Bregoli, also known as Bhad Bhabie, was not happy to see Skai's comment. In return, she posted an Instagram story calling Jackson a “Disney Thot.” Bregoli was so heated that she even went on Instagram Live and threatened Skai Jackson, saying, “I will literally kill you,” and claimed that she wanted to fight her. 

Skai Jackson did respond directly to Bregoli and instead took out a restraining order against her to protect herself.

She allegedly dated Lil Keed, an adult rapper. 

When Skai was 17, it was rumored that she was secretly dating Lil Keed, who was 21 at the time. Lil Keed’s baby mama was upset about their alleged relationship and confronted Jackson about it in her DMs. Skai Jackson denied having a relationship with Lil Keed, and said she didn't “want him in that type of way.” However, his baby mama said that she saw Jackson and Keed’s text messages and says that Skai flirtingly called him “daddy.” 

Skai responded to her saying that she moved on, saying, “I have a boyfriend now...just know I have no issue with you, and I don’t want any negative vibes because I just don’t like drama.”
