With hip hop star Drake and tennis’ Serena Williams dating, it appears the duo has recently heated up in terms of their relationship. The Rolling Stone site reported on Aug. 25 about how the couple was seen kissing in public. The news comes in the aftermath of the Drake vs. Meek Mill rap beef, and just ahead of Serena’s entry into the 2015 US Open tennis tournament. Will this couple last the remainder of the year and how are the odds for Serena to add another tournament title to her resume?
The report via Rolling Stone notes that the two were spotted having dinner in Cincinnati together on Sunday and were reportedly “making out.” That caused the internet to fly into a frenzy as people have wondered how long the relationship has been going on behind closed doors. Rolling Stone indicates that the two have posted some interesting photos over the past several weeks before the kissing news arrived. These include a Serena photo tagged with “#backtoback” after she won a recent tournament in Cincinnati.
Drake posted his own photo of Serena a month ago after she won again at Wimbledon 2015. His caption reads “Showtime Champ. A big plate for all that food you ate at Wimbledon.” The irony of this apparent relationship is that there was previous beef going on between Serena and Rihanna which Drake was supposedly at the center of. It ended up with some sort of non-physical altercation between Rihanna and the tennis star backstage at a concert in Paris.
A TMZ report from Aug. 25 indicates that Serena “digs” Drake for showing up at her matches and she even holds family section tickets at the events for him to attend. Apparently the reigning queen of women’s tennis has been into Drake ever since 2011 when they first got together. Things ended badly then according to Drake having “his eye on a few other chicks” at once. Serena is reportedly going to give a second chance to Drake after the previous burn.
There still is no official word from either the rapper or tennis star that they’re dating, but some believe the proof is in the pictures. It seems with Drake having silenced Meek Mill via his dis tracks he may be focusing on a new relationship. It will be interesting to see if he pops up in the coming week or so at the U.S. Open being held in New York. Serena leads all female contenders with odds of 5 to 8 to win the tournament title, according to Vegas Insider in their Aug. 23 report. The Open begins later this week with the early rounds and ends on Sept. 12 in New York.
