Tennis champion Serena Williams and rapper Drake were spotted together during the US Open season this summer and, of course, rumors of a relationship began flying. The two have remained mum about whether they are more than just friends, but Drake, never shy about his feelings, told Complex magazine just how he feels about Serena:
“I really, really love and care for Serena Williams. She’s incredible. That’s someone I’m proud to say I know. She’s definitely in my life and I’m in her life. It’s great to watch her play tennis. Very impressive.”
Drake also shared his greatest fear, and made clear it’s not anyone in the rap game:
“Dying, before I accomplish all this. That’s it. My father taught me: ‘Don’t fear any man. Don’t ever fear another person.’ I don’t get myself mixed up with stupid sh*t. I get a lot of love. I don’t feel tension. I stand 6’2â€³. By no means am I the most threatening guy in the rap game, but there are very few people who will come up and say that sh*t to me in person. It’s always all smiles. That’s one thing I do not fear, anyone in this game. Nobody. Especially none of these guys that are paid to talk sh*t.”
Drake’s sophomore album Take Care, hits store shelves today.
