Will Keyshawn and Derrick Break Up or Stay Together? – In Starz’s drama series ‘P-Valley,’ the bond between Keyshawn, A.K.A Miss Mississippi and Derrick is a crucial story aspect. Derrick, Keyshawn’s aggressive boyfriend, makes her life a living hell by abusing her physically and mentally. She remains under his care despite Diamond’s promise to save her from him. Toward the end of the first season, Diamond confronts Derrick about his aggressive behavior toward his fiancée.
Diamond defends Keyshawn from Derrick, but she also threatens him with a gun because he injured her boyfriend. Given that Derrick continues to negatively influence Keyshawn’s life, it’s understandable to worry whether she’ll leave him or stick with him. Let’s have a conversation about what we’re thinking!
Will Derrick and Keyshawn Stay Together or Break Up?
Derrick has repeatedly inflicted unimaginable pain on Keyshawn during her tenure at The Pynk. Even though she has a home and a family in the strip club, she refuses to leave Derrick to seek refuge from him. Diamond repeatedly offers to assist the stripper, but she refuses. Diamond intervenes when he confronts and fights Derrick without Keyshawn’s authorization.
By choosing Derrick over Diamond, she is also paving the path for her departure from The Pynk. However, her decision does not imply that she is prepared to put up with Derrick’s abuse for the rest of her life.
“She [Keyshawn] realised the decision she’d taken to protect her abuser wasn’t the best one,” Katori Hall, the show’s writer, told EW. Keyshawn is attempting to promote herself as a celebrity figure through Instagram and her relationship with Lil Murda after quitting The Pynk. She goes on tour with the rapper, and the two are widely praised for their performances. Keyshawn’s tenacious efforts to forge an independent profession could mark the beginning of a new chapter in her life, one that may or may not include Derrick.
Keyshawn, according to Hall, will try to quit her toxic relationship with Derrick. “We see her [Keyshawn] grapple with that regret [of selecting Derrick] in the second season, but we also see that regret ossify and harden her and make her stronger.” “She’s like, ‘Oh, I made the wrong choice, and now I have to grow up and make better choices, not only for myself, but also for my children and my future,” Hall told EW. Because Keyshawn’s only better option is to leave her abusive boyfriend, Hall’s statements imply that the pair will most certainly break up.

Keyshawn will save herself from Derrick’s poison, according to Hall. “Several women had to be locked up with their abusers during the pandemic, and domestic violence has increased.” “Seeing how this woman [Keyshawn] breaks out of that cage proves that it is possible,” the creator told EW in the same interview. As a result, we may expect Keyshawn to oppose Derrick in the next episodes. The trust she has built with her violent boyfriend may provide her with enough breathing room to confront and leave him.
After perhaps leaving Derrick in one of the next episodes of the second season, Keyshawn may start enjoying an independent life with the help of Lil Murda and Rome. If she succeeds, Keyshawn may explore a future with Diamond, who appears to have feelings for her. If that’s the case, we might finally get to see Keyshawn and Diamond’s long-awaited union.
