Drake has been pursuing Serena Williams for a while and she finally gave in, but an insider just spilled to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that her friends and family are really nervous he will hurt her!
We are totally shipping Serena Williams, 33, and Drake, 28, but we know a few people who are NOT! Serena’s friends and family don’t want to see a man “derailing her” from becoming the best female tennis player in the world, an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY — find out more!
“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,” an insider spilled to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Are you wondering how these two even got together? “Serena and Drake have been on a slow burn for a few months now. They have known each other for years and there has always been a spark but the timing was off,” the insider explained. “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. Part of Serena is concerned that Drake is only after her to get another notch on his belt. But she’s throwing caution into the wind,” the source went on.
In case you missed it, Drake and Serena were caught making out in public recently! Drake’s attendance at the Womens Tennis Association tournament in Cincinnati on August 23 confirmed that something was going on. The two headed to Sotto Eatery downtown that night and made out in a private back room — see the pics here!
