Back in January we reported on rumors that Keri Hilson and Oklahoma City Thunder player Serge Ibaka parted ways. Unfortunately, it appears that those rumors are true. Keri sort of, kind of, confirmed her split to The Jasmine Brand and it looks like she plans on throwing herself back into her music now that things with Serge have gone awry.
“This is going to be an interesting Valentine’s Day,” she said. “That’s all I’ll say. It’s going to be interesting. I’m working, I’m just busy, I’m busy. I feel like right now, music is my boyfriend. That’s how I feel, right now. So, I don’t know.”
She also had a few words of encouragement for single ladies who haven’t met Mr. Right yet.
“Know who you are. Umm, never drop your standards, for anyone. That’s it. And I mean that in every sense of the relationship. Business, you know whatever, if there’s a certain standard that you uphold, and you’re so strong-minded. There are some things that you [can] tweak in a relationship, but not your standard. Not that.”
Keri also discussed the difficulty of going through a public breakup.
“That can be difficult,” she told HipHollywood. “It can be difficult. I mean you can always do without any facet of your life being exposed and dealing with it. Sometimes you wanna deal privately and you’re not really given that option all of the time.”
Keri is one of those celebrities who for the most part enjoys keeping her business under wraps, so we’re not shocked that she didn’t directly confirm the breakup, but we catch her drift. It’s unfortunate that their love didn’t last, but maybe it’s all for the best.
