Common Is Cool With Serena Williams Dating Drake
Having both dated Serena Williams and beefed with Drake, Common was an obvious person to ask what his thoughts are on the relationship between Drizzy and Serena. TMZ did just that and the rapper took the high road. "Serena is a friend of mine," said the rapper. "As long as she's happy, I'm good."
Back in 2011, Drake and Common had an on-wax beef that Com later admitted was over Serena Williams, whom he had dated and Drake was lusting over. "At that time, I think it was the Drake-Serena Situation," Common said in an interview. "I didn't know what was going on with that. And I ain't know if he was throwing shots at me. [Serena] and I we're going our separate ways. So, unfortunately, the war might have been over a girl but at the time I never said that. It wasn't totally that. It was more of, Do you respect me? Cause I actually like you as an artist...I look back and say I'm glad it never escalated into a physical thing."
Drake and Williams were recently caught cozying up together while out to dinner in Cincinnati after the tennis star's win at the Western & Southern Open.
