When Drake and Serena Williams were spotted making out on August 23 at Sotto restaurant in downtown Cincinnati we were shocked but our insider tells us that they have been on a ‘slow burn’ for a few months! Whoa, we are totally shipping this couple, are you?
Drake and Serena Williams, are dating! The tennis champ and and the 28-year-old rapper weren’t interested in the yummy food during their date after Serena, 33, won the WTA tournament, they simply wanted to swap spit and we loved it. An insider tells HollywoodLife.com that Drake has been wanting to date Serena for a while but the timing has always been “off” but finally they are both single and jumping full speed ahead into their relationship.
“Serena and Drake have been on a slow burn for a few months now,” a source tells us. “They have known each other for years and there has always been a spark but the timing was off. Drake was always saying to her, ‘When are we going out?’ Serena never seriously thought Drake was interested in her like that though. He’s such a player and a flirt, she thought he was just playing games. But when he really started pursuing her she thought ‘why not?’ Serena is concerned that Drake is only after her to get another notch on his belt. But she’s throwing caution into the wind.”
But our source adds that her sister, Venus and her family are a bit worried: “Her friends and family unfortunately aren’t as trusting of Drake and worry he will just break her heart. She’s on the cusp of becoming the undisputed best female tennis player in the history of the game and they don’t want a broken heart at the hands of Drake derailing her.” We told you that they were caught in a passionate liplock by TMZ and we think this is just utterly amazing. The best female tennis player of all time and one of the best rappers in the game — dating?! They would have some very genetically gifted kids!
