Serena Smashes Dating Rumors Around Country Singer
It appeared that hot-tempered tennis pro Serena Williams had officially traded in a rap star for a country singer when she was spotted on what seemed like a date with up and coming country music star Jake Owen at Matsuhisa restaurant in Los Angeles.
Although you probably haven’t heard of Jake, he does have a No. 1 hit, “Blue Jean Barefoot Night.” He also has three albums under his belt and has toured with country legends Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Sugarland, and Keith Urban.
No PDA was seen between the two at dinner and Serena, although annoyed by the paparazzi, when she reportedly tweeted, “Ugh paparazzi annoying. Honestly really? Like I wonder what tomm they will say,” still sent friendly tweets to Jake after dinner:
@jakeowen had so much fun tonite! Yea can’t wait to see concert tomm! Fun time see u tomm/today!!! Lol @MardyFish wish u were here!”
A few days later Serena took to the Twitter world again to squash the buzz surrounding her and Jake’s relationship:
“I NEVER address rumors but this one I will. I am not dating @jakeowen. He is a great guy with a super amazing girlfriend.”
“Its not fair to me to Jake or his girlfriend to say we r dating when u just hang out and have dinner with friends. So stop the lies!!”
Yes mam. So what do you think — are they just friends? Who would you like to see Serena make her new boo?
