Keri Hilson and Ricardo Lockette dated for around five months before splitting in December 2017

Keri Hilson is back on the singles market after splitting from her NFL player boyfriend Ricardo Lockette. It doesn’t appear to be an entirely amicable split with the former couple throwing subliminal shots at each other on social media.

Hilson, 35, was first linked to the Seattle Seahawks wide receiver in June 2017. However after around five months of dating, the couple appear to have called it quits.

Lockette, 31, alluded to their break-up in a since-deleted Instagram meme on 18 December which read: “I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say ‘Because of you, I didn’t give up’.”

Earlier in December, Hilson also appeared to confirm their split, tweeting: “A ‘mistake’ is usually the word people prefer to use when it really was a RISK they DECIDED to take. But word to the wise, make sure you can handle both outcomes.”

Assuming the message to be written about him, Lockette directly replied to Hilson’s tweet: “Lol wish you the best!!” alongside a champagne glasses emoji.

It wasn’t long before Lockette’s followers accused the football star of throwing jabs at his ex, prompting him to state: “Never any shade, always love and the upmost respect for her. Everyday was a blessing. #Queen.”

Hilson split from longtime boyfriend Serge Ibaka in November 2016, after which she admitted dating athletes was not her priority. The R&B singer told Rolling Out magazine: “I thought I found someone who’s also an exception. It wasn’t ‘enthralling’ for me to date an athlete. It was on my list of ‘not to dos’ — no rappers, no actors and no ball players. I broke my rule because I thought I found someone different.”
