Ever since filing for divorce from Aryn Drake in 2017, Jesse Williams has been trying to find his footing on the dating scene. His dalliance with actress Minka Kelly didn’t receive a very warm reception. However, he is rumored to be seeing a new young lady, SportsNet New York sportscaster Taylor Rooks, and this possible connection is already getting rave reviews.

There has been no word from Williams or Rooks on the rumors, but according to the New York Post, they were spotted together at Kevin Hart’s comedy show in Atlantic City, New Jersey over the Memorial Day weekend holiday.

We’ll have to wait and see if the rumors turn into anything worth talking about down the line, but for now, we’re intrigued. They’re not the only possible new partnership people have been chatting about recently. Hit the flip for nine other celebrity dating rumors that have been brewing, shut down completely, or just happen to be very, very interesting.

Halle Berry and Keanu Reeves

The two just started working together on the third installment in the John Wick film series (and she’s still trying to figure out how to officially move on from Olivier Martinez), but there are already rumors because they looked “chummy” in on-set photos. But considering they just started working together, we don’t believe it. Plus, a source close to Berry told Extra that it’s only a rumor.

Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner

The Sixers star was literally just in a relationship with singer Tinashe, but not only have they broken up, he’s also been seen hanging with Kendall Jenner. There are rumors he cheated on her with the model and reality star, which can’t be confirmed (though Tinashe’s brother is piiiiissed), but they’ve definitely been spending some time together — including at a hotel…

Tinashe and Donovan Mitchell

Could it be payback?! After NBA star Ben Simmons moved on fast from his relationship with Tinashe, she was actually just seen hanging out at the same nightclub as fellow NBA star (and Simmons’s “rookie rival”) Donovan Mitchell of the Utah Jazz. Last time we checked, Mitchell is head over heels in love with girlfriend Deja, so it sounds like much ado about nothing.

Nicki Minaj and Eminem

It all started with a lyric on YG’s song, “Big Bank,” which she’s featured on: “Told em’ I’m Miss Slim Shady, bagged the Em/Once he go black, he’ll be back again.”

From there, Nicki Minaj was asked if she was dating the Detroit rapper on social media, and in a flat response, said, “Yes.” From there, Eminem played into the rumors, calling her “bae” at a recent concert. And while they were obviously joking, Eminem seems down for whatever is clever.

“How many people in Boston want me to date Nicki Minaj?” he asked at the concert. “Godd–n it, me too! Nicki if you get this message, just text me later, we’ll talk about it.”

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

The Quantico stunner, 35, and former Jonas Brothers cutie, 25, were seen hanging out together with friends during the Memorial Day weekend. And soon after that, they were spotted having a good time at an L.A. Dodger’s game. It looks more than friendly to us, and a source says the same thing.

“They are dating and it’s brand new, a source told Us Weekly. “It’s a good match and they are both interested in each other.”

Justin Theroux and Laura Harrier

The estranged husband of Jennifer Aniston has been seen with quite a few ladies here and there over the last few months. This week, he was spotted with actress Laura Harrier, star of the upcoming BlacKkKlansman and the recent Spider-Man: Homecoming, hanging out in the South of France. However, he was spotted with actress Emma Stone as well, and a source close to the actor says he’s just “casually dating.”

Kash Doll and Meek Mill

The female rapper was seen hanging out with a recently freed Meek Mill, kicking back and enjoying a bag of chips together. That immediately turned into a rumor that they are dating. Kash Doll shut it all down by saying, “Stop talking about, ‘Am I f–king Meek?’ That’s my friend, that’s my dog. Shut up.”

Amber Rose and Lil Pump

After being spotted spending time with rapper Lil Pump and cheering him on, on stage during a recent festival performance, people had questions for Amber Rose. Especially since she recently professed her undying love for ex 21 Savage. However, she made it clear that he’s just a friend.

“Please stop saying I’m dating Lil Pump,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’m old enough to be his mother.”

For the record, she is 34, Pump is 17 — and 21 is actually 25.

Loni Love and Mystery Biker

After laying out all sorts of evidence, the ladies of The Real hilariously came to the conclusion that Loni Love has a new motorcycle-riding boyfriend. Unfortunately, she said she would address the rumors next season. But you can’t blame a girl for wanting to wait and see if a new prospect is worth talking about…
