Awww! Keri Hilson & Serge Ibaka Split, Here’s Why!

The Pan African Film & Arts Festival Premiere Of "About Last Night"

Hate to see one of our favorite CocoaFabulous couples head for splitsville, but alas, it’s true. Keri Hilson and her NBA boo Serge Ibaka have called it quits.

The Jasmine Brand caught up with singer/songwriter Keri Hilson on the red carpet for About Last Night just before Valentine’s Day and asked how she planned on spending the holiday. The brown-skinned beauty surprisingly revealed that she and her NBA hunk Serge Ibaka are pretty much over.

After being asked if she was single, Keri dished on having a new love. “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.”

While she’s sad about her upcoming Valentine’s Day and spending it solo, she’s looking forward to the future. Her best advice is something every one should keep in mind:

“Know who you are.  Never drop your standards, for anyone. That’s it. And I mean that in every since 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 standards.”

Good tip, Keri!
