While promoting her new film “Almost Christmas,” R&B singer Keri Hilson got candid about her split from Serge Ibaka, who she began dating back in 2012.
“It wasn’t ‘enthralling’ for me to date an athlete. It was on my list of ‘not to dos’ — no rappers, no actors and no ball players,” she said in her interview with Rolling Out. “I broke my rule because I thought I found someone different … It wasn’t an attraction to the status and the money.
“I am no different from other women when it comes to attraction to qualities of a man. I am pretty level headed. I want someone who loves God genuinely and respects women, [is] loyal. All the same things every woman wants.”
One thing’s for sure, Keri’s next relationship will not be put on “Front Street.”
“I will make different decisions in future relationships. When you put things on Front Street, it opens the door for opinions. It opens the door for wolves to attack. I certainly have been placed in that position where things have been written about me as it pertains to relationships that are so far from the truth. To me, that’s a personal attack. You can talk about my music all day, but when it comes to making up things and a character attack, I don’t take them well. It makes me want to be completely mysterious. You can’t really stop it though. It’s the climate we’re in.”
