Although we may remember her as the cute spelling bee champ from the hit movie Akeelah and the Bee, actress Keke Palmer is all grown up.
The childhood star is now a full fledged woman who landed two covers of Fuzion magazine. Palmer gave some insight into her evolution from a childstar to a respected actress as she explained, “It’s definitely been a, I don’t wanna say hard, but a big transition from being a kid and going up into an adult, while being on screen.
The 20-year-old also shed light on her relationship with her live-in boyfriend Rodney King as she beamed, “I am dating someone right now, we have been dating for three years now he’s a great guy, but I’m definitely in that part of my life where I’m really focusing on doing what I need to do and getting what I need to do get done and same as him. So it’s more so us focusing on ourselves and then getting back to each other.”
Palmer, who plays a leading role as Chili in the upcoming TLC biopic, CrazySexyCool, revealed that the R&B songstress was very pleased with her portrayal. “She texted me when she saw the movie and was just like there couldn’t have been a better person that could have done it, I’m so proud of you, she and I really got a close relationship out of working on the movie,” Palmer told the mag.
