Although Palmer tends to stay mum on her romantic entanglements, she has waxed poetic when it comes to talking about love. During a 2022 Valentines day post to Jackson, the Akeelah and the Bee star expressed what romantic love meant to her.


"Valentine's Day should look different for everyone. It's an expression of love and we all have our own perspective of what that is," she penned in the reflective (and since deleted) Instagram post.

"I know romance novels and social media can often have you wrapped up in what it 'should' look like. But as we get older I think we all realize it's more about what it feels like than what it looks like," she continued.

"So while people may tell you what you should be doing or how today is meant to be spent, I hope your day was filled with love in the way YOU like to receive it!"

From allegedly getting cozy with rappers to flirting on live television with a Bachelor contestant — Palmer always knows how to send a guy's heart racing!

“First of all, my producers know about the rumors and stuff like that. But also, on top of that, astrologically [Meek] and I are a match,” she noted. “I’m the type of person that’s like, we don’t need to beat around the bush…I know we all [are] thinking about the Meek Mill rumors and it doesn’t really matter to me because he and I are very cool.”
