Serge Ibaka is a well-established basketball player in NBA. He is Congolese and is 27 years of age. He was born on 18 September 1989. He plays for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association. His both parents were basketball players so he had a keen interest in The Game from his childhood. Ibaka has played for the national basketball team of Spain. Ibaka was in a relationship with Keri Hilson since 2012. However, the pair broke up in 2016. The reasons for the break up are not known.

Keri Hilson Marriage and Truth

Many websites claim that Keri Hilson was married to Samuel Soba since 2002. Still, the most verifiable and trusted source, Wikipedia, has no mention of her marriage on her Wikipedia page. This raises some questions. Another point worth mentioning is that the photos of Keri Hilson and Samuel Soba are in reality the pictures of Keri and Serge. The claim of many websites that Keri has a child from this marriage is also questionable because there is no reference to her child on her Wikipedia page. Therefore, it is highly unlikely that she married or established a relationship with Samuel Soba.

No rumor related to these three people can be verified because not all of them have revealed much about their personal lives. Some say that Keri married Serge in 2002 and his true name is Samuel Soba. He changed his name for NBA. They also claim that the age of Serge is higher than the known one. This rumor is also wrong because Serge came to the USA around 2009 and the marriage between Keri and Soba took place earlier. Other than the articles on the websites, there is no source to know anything about Samuel Soba.

Overall, it can be said that the rumor is fake and there is no evidence to prove which claim is true. A website started this rumor to increase its traffic.
