However, this is not the first time Drake and Serena have been rumoured to be in an intimate relationship.
The 21-time Grand Slam champion was photographed in a private booth with Drake at the Sotto Italian restaurant in Cincinnati following her triumph over Simona Halep.
Serena has been rumored to be dating coach Patrick Mouratoglou. TMZ has 11 pictures of the superstar couple’s touchiest moments, and while the website has verified a makeout sesh, there’s not quite irrefutable evidence of any lip-locks.
There have been rumors for months about Serena and Drake, ever since he was seen cheering her at Wimbledon in June. On Sunday August 23rd, Drake and Serena went out for a romantic dinner date in Cincinnati to celebrate her victory.
The onlookers revealed that Drake and Serena were with 6 other people, and celebrated by ordering a round of tequila shots for the table.
Interestingly, Serena’s ex-boyfriend, Common, confessed last summer that his beef with Drake was actually fueled by the Toronto rapper’s relationship with the tennis star. She has been incredibly focused on her title bid. “Drake was always saying to her, ‘when are we going out?'”.
While neither Williams nor Drake have commented on their romance, the Twitterverse sure has a whole lot to say. So unfortunately, the war might have been over a girl, but at the time I never said that.
Drake had scathing bars like “Shawty wanna tell me secrets ’bout a rap n-gga, I tell that b-tch it’s more attractive when you hold it down”. He’s got a bit of a reputation as a bandwagon fan and seems to simply enjoy being seen with big-names, even in the tennis world.
