Relax, Internet: Drake and Serena Williams are Not Engaged

In fact, they may not even be dating anymore.

Published October 10, 2015

Drake and Serena Williams set the Internet on fire with rumors of an engagement earlier this week, but reps for both the stars have been quick to set the record straight: it's not happening.

Within hours of the rumor making headlines, sources close to Drake and Serena reached out to several outlets in order to shut it down while simultaneously clarifying what's really going on with their supposed romance. One source explained that not only is the duo not engaged, Drake and Serena are not even officially a couple. The insider says that the rapper and tennis champ are nothing more than “longtime friends” and are absolutely “not in a relationship” despite all the time they've been spending together.


The reported couple haven't exactly been discouraging the rumors. After they were spotted on a number of cozy dates this summer, Drake showed up to watch Serena play in the U.S. Open in September and then 'Rena returned the favor by hanging out backstage at his concert last weekend. She even dropped a cute message on one of his shirtless Instagram pics.

Still, it doesn't look like we'll get as much use out of that #Aubrena hashtag as we would have hoped.
