Drake and Serena Williams Might Be Engaged
Drake has made a career off of his neuroses in the romantic department. On his 2009 debut album, Thank Me Later, he was fretting about the effect his fame might have on his relationships, well before he became the full-fledged star he is today. From going through his female companions’ phones (“Lord Knows”) to surreptitiously doling out wifi codes (“Energy”), the paranoia continues, because it’s very lonely at the top. All of which might explain the latest rumor: that the Toronto-born rapper is engaged to his rumored girlfriend, the tennis legend Serena Williams. According to OK! Magazine and a variety of tabloid sources, the two are engaged. One of OK!’s sources tells the magazine, “[Williams] said yes, but they want to keep it on the down-low for now,” following Drake’s bent-knee proposal in Toronto. That same source claims that “all” of Serena’s friends approve of the couple, and that Drake has been the consummate gentlemen since they rekindled their romance.
But before you get excited and start wishing them congrats, the rumors have been already dispelled. A source close to both camps confirm to XXL that the rumors are completely untrue. The two were previously tied together in 2011, when they were spotted together at a handful of restaurants. Williams was speculated to be at least one factor in the beef between Drake and Common; the latter, elder rapper has been romantically tied to the Compton-bred tennis star as well. So, false alarm folks, nothing to see here.
