Drake and Serena Williams were spotted kissing in a restaurant over the weekend. After months of rumours concerning the nature of their relationship, have them inadvertently confirmed they’re a couple?
Drake and Serena Williams have been snapped kissing in public. The rapper and tennis player were photographed at a restaurant in Cincinnati on Sunday evening (23rd August). They’ve been rumoured to have been dating for a number of months and now they’ve seemingly confirmed, albeit indirectly, their romantic involvement.

TMZ obtained a series of photographs of 28-year-old Drake and 33-year-old Williams together. The photographs, which appear to have been taken by another dinner in the restaurant, show Drake and Williams enjoying dinner together before sharing a kiss and a hug. The pair had a private room at the back of the restaurant but the curtains weren’t quite closed shut so it was fairly easy for other patrons to see in to the room.
The pair were dining at a fancy Italian restaurant, Sotto. They may have been celebrating Williams’ victory at the WTA Tournament in Cincinnati earlier in the day. Drake was there to cheer on Williams and was also photographed at the tournament.
Rumours concerning the nature of Drake and Williams’ relationship began in July when Drake was spotted filming Williams on at Wimbledon. Sources speaking to E! suggest the couple have been friends for years but they’ve become something more over the past few months. Drake even shared a picture of Williams holding up her Wimbledon trophy on Instagram.
Drake and Williams are yet to comment on the nature of their relationship.
Williams manages to keep her private life private, quite feat considering her status as the top female tennis player in the world. Earlier this year, she was rumoured to have been involved with her French tennis coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. As People reports, neither Williams nor Patrick Mouratoglou ever confirmed their romantic involvement.
As for Drake, the ‘Started from the Bottom’ rapper has not been linked to anyone person for an extended period. Drake was embroiled in a minor scandal earlier this year when Lil Wayne revealed Drake slept with his girlfriend whilst Wayne was imprisoned in 2010, as TMZ reports.
