Serena Williams rumored to be dating Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian

Since Serena Williams' semifinal match against Roberta Vinci in this year's US Open, rumors about her love life have been tossed wildly about by various media outlets. In particular, the media and fans alike analyzed rapper Drake's appearance at her semifinal and even hounded him for "cursing" Serena's potential Calendar Grand Slam.


The two dated in 2011, so relationship rumors heated up even more when the rapper appeared at Serena's show at New York Fashion Week on September 15th. Several media outlets claimed that they were engaged, and when that idea was debunked, they announced that Serena was pregnant with Drake's baby. Finally, an insider once again squashed the rumors, saying that Serena's withdrawal from year end tournaments was based on the need to de-stress and regroup.

Serena and Reddit cofounder

Now, however, it appears that Serena has a completely new love interest in Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. In Los Angeles, California, late last month, she reportedly took him along for a workout at her gym, where they held hands and flirted. The new pair supposedly met at "a lunch", but the situation may be even more complicated considering the fact that Ohanian instagramed Serena in action nearly five months ago.

Thanks to some social media super sleuthing, we may have more evidence of their budding relationship, as the following Twitter and Instagram posts show. They may have been together at the Inside Nike's Playbook event in New York on November 11. Perhaps we'll be seeing more of Alexis in the near future!
