Sources say Williams' pals don't want to see her hurt again

By the looks of our Facebook post on Serena Williams and Drake hooking up again, it's clear folks are split in their support for the rumored couple. Much like our readers, it seems Williams' friends are also unsure about the rekindled romance.

According to TMZ, the tennis champ's friends are warning her to be careful this second time around, as they don't want to see her hurt again over the Canadian rapper. The pair first became an item in 2011, but the relationship reportedly fizzled out because of Drake's wandering eye.

Williams is said to be giving him another chance because they have a "good vibe" together, but she's taking things slowly. Sources also say Drake is treating her with more respect than other women because she's clearly not using him for his fame or fortune.

There's no telling how deep Williams and Drake are getting this time around. A separate source told Page Six the pair have been off and on for a while, but have never pursued a serious relationship because they are both too busy.


We'll keep an eye on this one for sure.
