23-time grand slam champion Serena Williams has dated many renowned celebrities over the years but probably the most hidden one and also the most ‘flirty’ one was her alleged relationship with famous Canadian rapper Drake. While neither Drake nor Serena has ever spoken about each other publicly, they were spotted multiple times with each other over the years.

It is said that Drake and Serena never dated each other properly but only used to hook up during Serena’s prime in 2015. Drake was first spotted supporting Serena in 2011 and over the next few years, he even got into a rap diss with Common over Serena. Finally, in 2015, the two were seen making out in an Italian restaurant in Cincinnati.

As captured and reported by TMZ, the couple private room in a famous Cincinnati restaurant, the Sotto restaurant in the downtown region which is famous for its Italian food. 6 other friends accompanied them and according to the people in the restaurant, they had a round of tequila shots for the table.

Serena and Drake were also pictured sitting cozy on the same table and were also seen making out. This also confirmed the rumor that they were hooking up for some months back in 2015.

Drake first watches Serena Williams’ match back in 2011 and became a fan. He even cryptically tweeted alleging dating rumors and started regularly watching her matches.

He was then spotted watching Serena in 2015 when the American legend won Wimbledon and also was blamed for Serena’s loss in the US Open 2015 semifinals when he was in the stadium. Even after Serena got married, Drake, as a good friend, came to watch Serena play during Wimbledon in 2018.
