Keri Hilson doesn’t dish much about her personal life. But, the R&B songstress did open up a bit about her breakup with Orlando Magic baller Serge Ibaka.

When singers suffer a breakup, fans get excited for a fire new album. Interestingly enough, the “Knock You Down” singer is following that blueprint as she gears up to release a new album titled L.I.A.R (Love Is A Religion), her first album since the release of her 2nd studio album No Boys Allowed in 2010.

Love this entire look! 

When asked about her breakup with Serge, she had nothing but good things to say. While calling it quits with the person you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with is hard, Keri sees it as a learning experience.

“I’m not a big fan of talking about my relationships in settings when it’s about music and movies and things like that. But, I learned so much. I’m grateful, I thank him.”

We’re sure her uncoupling from the NBA baller provided some inspiration for the new music.  Ugh those two were such a hot couple!
