Hailing from Congo, Serge is a basketball player who currently represents the NBA’s Toronto Raptors and plays for Spanish national team. He was in a relationship with Keri for four years, but they preferred to keep their feelings away from the limelight and made rare appearances at some events together.
The reason for their breakup is still unknown. As Ibaka had a reputation as a womanizer and had a daughter named Ranie from a previous relationship, many sources accused him of cheating. However, Hilson never made such accusations.
Samuel Soba (rumored husband)
- Date of birth: December 1982
Duration of marriage: March 17, 2002 – unknown
Samuel Soba is rather a mysterious man. He is rumored to meet Keri in 2000 and tie knots with her in 2002. What is more, Keri and Samuel are rumored to have a son together.
Nevertheless, no one has ever seen this man and we aren’t sure that he exists. Some sources state that it’s the other name of Ibaka, but in 2002, he was too young to marry the singer. The others are sure that Samuel is an imaginary character created by the media or Keri herself trying to keep her love life under wraps. Moreover, there is no information about their divorce while Hilson claims that she is single.
