Rumors that Drake and tennis star Serena Williams are an item have been circulating ever since the Young Money rapper was seen at her recent match in Toronto. But Williams tried to set the record straight and said the two are not dating. Not at the moment anyway.

 

"Oh, man. Really? We're really close friends," she tells The Toronto Star. "Can't be too close to a friend nowadays, I guess."

 

Apparently not. And you definitely can't cheer your friends' triumphs because that could very well end up being fuel for the rumor mill, too. What do you think about this supposed coupling?
