The Internet really, really wants Drake and Serena Williams to be official baes. For quite some time now, rumors have circulated about the rapper and tennis champ's supposed romance, and photos of the pair appearing extremely cozy in a restaurant in Cincinnati back in August seriously fanned the flames. However, the gossip reached a fever pitch on Thursday, when multiple outlets reported that Serena said yes after Drake proposed in Toronto.
If you already concocted a vision of romantic Views From the 6 as the backdrop for Drake's bended-knee proposal followed by Serena gleefully accepted his hand in marriage, then pump the brakes on that overactive imagination. As far as we can tell, they're not actually getting hitched after all.
Apparently, a source told Entertainment Tonight that the Drake and Serena engagement rumors are "completely and utterly untrue." So much for that celebrity guest list we imagined...
We have to say that this is one rumor we didn't fall for. Drake has been linked to several celebrities, including Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. And it doesn't make it any better that his vulnerable, emo music keeps the ladies swooning.
Even if there aren't any romantic ties between Drake and Serena, it's clear that they're extremely supportive of one another. The "Started From the Bottom rapper" cheered Serena on from the sidelines of her U.S. Open match, and the 33-year-old tennis star made an appearance at Drake's restaurant opening in September.
If they do decide to step things up a notch, we'll keep our eyes peeled for some bling on that ring finger so we know it's real.
