Speaking with Harpers Bazaar in May 2020, Keke said relationships are off-limits for social media.
“I don’t really do relationship stuff online, mainly because I don’t know how I would do it without looking, like, cheesy or something, you know?” the 26-year-old told the magazine. “Yes, I’m a hundred percent authentic, but there is stuff that I do save for family and friends.”
She continued, “I do have a Finsta. Sometimes I forget to post on there, ’cause I do post a lot of real moments and raw moments on my main Instagram page. But at the same time, when it comes to romance, [posting about it] doesn’t really come naturally to me, so I feel like, why force it?”
“I’ve always had the same philosophy when it comes to dating,” Keke said. “Not that I wouldn’t give someone a try. But trying to keep my private life outside of my work life, to me, it’s easiest when you don’t date someone with the same career.” Most recently, Keke was linked to Elvin Jackson, who does not appear to be in the industry himself, which lines up with her philosophy. The two started dating in 2018, though they reportedly broke up in 2019.
A few years earlier, Keke admitted to snooping in her partner’s phones when she feels necessary. “I’m one of those girlfriends that’ll hack into my guy’s social media,” she told Women’s Health in 2017. “I’ll fish for his password habits — birthday, pet’s name — during a casual conversation, then use that to get into his e-mail or his social accounts.”
