While we can’t confirm whether or not Drake and Serena Williams are a couple, there’s no denying that the two are rekindling some form of a romantic relationship. But of course, the petty coral wouldn’t allow this courtship to fully blossom until they checked in with Williams’ ex-boyfriend, Common, who admitted to engaging in lyrical warfare with Drake in the past over whispers that the rapper had made a move on the tennis star.
Although in previous interviews he still seemed to be pining over the curvaceous beauty, Common seemed quite satisfied by the idea that his ex may have found happiness with someone else.
“Serena is a friend of mine,” the rapper told TMZ. “As long as she’s happy, I’m good.”
Although whispers about the former couple possibly revisiting their relationship after she was photographed posing with Common’s Oscar Award earlier this year, he made it clear that their romance has been dead in the water for a minute.
“You know, that’s my friend. We dated. That’s been done a long time ago, so now, it’s like we’re friends.”
“She’s doing super good in tennis. She’s incredible, so as long as she’s happy, I’m good.”
Common and Serena broke up years ago, and it’s likely that he’s completely over the situation, but in the event that he’s just putting on a good face and is really broken up inside, he’s more than welcome to make his way to Madame Noire’s office. I know of a shoulder that he could lean on.
