“Have a little self-respect” – Keri Hilson’s Message for “Thirsty” Ladies on Social Media



The 2014 ESPYS - Arrivals
Musician Keri Hilson has been in a serious relationship with Congolese-Spanish NBA Star Serge Ibaka for a few years. Though their relationship has been on and off, the couple are currently together and regularly post coupled up photos on social media as well as attend major red carpet events together.

On Friday last week, Keri went on a mini-rant on twitter directed at women who vie for the attention of taken men specifically on social media. There have been many documented cases of celebrities and fans sharing sometimes explicit photos and messages on instagram and twitter. Based on her tweets, it seems as though Serge received questionable messages which he wisely shared with his girlfriend.

Read her messages below

We are inclined to agree with Keri. So BellaNaijarians, what are your thoughts?

    She needs to marry him then if she wants to go speaking in public like this! by law and in God’s eyes, he is single. Although people need to respect themselves, she needs to seal the deal. lol just remembered that in documents they write boxes for single or married no box for dating or in a relationship…

      They do actually. Well, here in Britain they do. Don’t know about the states but here, if you’ve been in a serious relationship for two (2) years and above, the other person is officially known as your partner. This is for people who choose not to get married for whatever reasons but are committed to each other. That might just be their case.

    Yarns of life, so during their frequent off periods does this thot actually think Ibaka was faithful . If any one is desperate it is her, madam I must to pound yam to hook my African boo. She needs to take several seats, until Ibaka puts a ring on her finger she is no different from an nba groupie. Just because he is laughing at it with her in her presence doesn’t mean he doesn’t get it on when they are on tour/playing out of state in her absence

      Madam since when did pounding yam for ur man translate to desperate? And how did you know Ibaka isn’t/wasn’t faithful during their off periods? Does he spend the off periods with you? And how does her being his girlfriend equate to her being an nba groupie? Hian! Later you’ll say there’s no hate in this comment. My dear relax. God don’t like ugly.

      @coco, I can tell you’re a yam pounder, LOL. At the end of the day, that man will not still marry you, guys don’t like desperate girls.

    To be honest she has NO claim to him unless he marries her. Chances are he is not actually laughing with her as she thinks over the so called thirsty girls.

      No claim?
      Surely being his Girlfriend/Partner is a claim! …

    this isn’t a shop where until you’ve paid for the item it’s free for all. how would you feel if someone dipped their hands into the soup you just served yourself? you haven’t eaten it but common-sense dictates that its already yours. Leave Keri and her business. it is not le relationship for the world. if she’s happy…

    He’s probably enjoying himself at everyone’s expense including the jealous girlfriend

    I think its ridiculous how everyone goes on and on about how someone is single just cos they aren’t married yet. So you’re saying you’ll be very okay if this happened to you? Like seriously you wouldn’t feel a teeny weeny bit slighted? You’ll just flip ur weave, straighten ur dress&say my man’s single technically so any woman can do whatever with him? That’s NOT going to happen and that’s why you need to stop making Keri look like she’s not being human.

      Ridiculous isnt even the word! Im literally sat with my mouth opened in shock!
      women are really saying that because one is not married but in a relationship, they are therefore single and can do whatever they want???? and the other partner can not and should not feel a way about it?
      Every day I feel like Nigerians can’t shock me any more than do they….and everyday they shock me more and more…..!

    @bruno is DollyP ur alter ego or are you just thirsting for a response? FYI I don’t know how to pound yam and I am not even dating right now. That said, don’t you have a life to get? Oh I forgot, this place is ur only life.

    I can’t speak for Nigeria, but here in the states, when you’ve been cohabitatiing with someone for “x” amount of years, without a marriage certificate, in the courts eye, that’s a common law marriage. Now, with just 2 years – off and on – that may not stand up in court. Just saying’…

    You and your boo might be laughing together at the hoe-ish people..but he will soon secretly start having affairs with them. stay there and be ranting,instead of strategizing means for him to put a ring on it..lmao

    • MC

      “strategising means for him to put a ring on it”.
      how desperate sounding!
      wait…by your logic, once he puts a ring on it he wont cheat any more?

    If you committed to stay in a relationship with a woman for two years than you guys are together unless you both agree its an open relationship. As long as that agreement wasn’t made, the man is taken and so is the woman and in that case, people should respect that and leave them alone…the ocean is wide abeg..Go fish if e dey do you like that!

    Everlasting side chicks be like”a man is fairgame until he is married”…awon oloshi..go get your own man! and leave d poor girl……meanwhyl come near mine and see that acid is real…its so annoying how women are so selfish in dia thots but wen it cums to theirs dey bring out all dia fangs…mscheeew

  20. huh!

    September 5, 2014 at 10:51 pm

    Acid for a man? Ain’t worth it dear? All these fuss about relationships even, is it worth it? Keri was both halfway right and half way wrong for these rant, someone needed to say something about these desperate girls but then she is just fueling their energy reserve by doing so…
    P.S: unless she carried him on her shoulders and walked away, she didn’t snatch him, he left. Your patner will always do what they want to whether you act like acmother hen or whatever so it all boils down to their feir of God and their respect for you.
