Serena Williams And Common NOT Back Together, Despite Speculation
Serena Williams and Common are NOT back together, despite inaccurate speculation. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “not true.”
The tennis star and her sister, Venus, launched the Yetunde Price Resource Center in Compton on Friday. The community service center will connect residents affected by gun violence, and was named after their eldest sister, who was shot and killed in 2003. Williams’s ex-boyfriend, Common, attended the grand opening, leading TMZ to wrongly speculate the ex-couple might be back together. “Serena Williams – Back With Common?” asks the website in a headline.
The outlet goes on to quote an eyewitness as saying Williams and Common “were in a back room chatting” before she took the stage at the event, and were also “careful to avoid taking pics together.” The website’s source further claims the exes “seemed like more than buddies,” but does admit that the two “left in separate cars” at the end of the function. Gossip Cop, however, checked in with a very reliable source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us the athlete and rapper aren’t back together, and any conjecture otherwise is simply “not true.” The ex-couple, who split in 2010 after more than a year of dating, have remained friends, but they haven’t rekindled a romance.
