After being in the stands for her loss against Roberta Vinci in the semifinals at the U.S. Open on Friday, the rapper was once again there to support Williams – this time at her fashion show in New York City on Tuesday.
Drake attended the Serena Williams’ HSN Signature Statement Collection, where he beamed and applauded from the front row.
Sitting next to Anna Wintour, he was transfixed by the show, analyzing each piece. At the end, when Williams appeared to take a bow, he stood up to give it a big round of applause.
Williams herself was beaming throughout the event. Afterwards, she spoke about her line and the philosophy behind it.
“One thing I love about my line is that it’s not just for one race of people or one type of person,” Williams said backstage.
“It’s not for the thin girls or thick.. it’s just for everybody! It’s just for women. And it’s about empowering and coming together.”
Williams and Drake were also snapped getting cozy last month at the upscale restaurant Sotto in Cincinnati, while they were in town for the Western & Southern Open, where Drake also cheered her on in the stands.
Dating rumors first began to swirl when the “Energy” rapper showed up to support Williams from her guest box at Wimbledon last month. Then, at a July 9 press conference attended by Drake, the tennis pro rolled her eyes and said, “We’ve been friends for, like, so many years Just like family,” when asked if he was her “lucky charm,” the Associated Press reported.
