Since the photos surfaced, E! News has reported that the two have apparently been friends for quite some time and their relationship turned romantic about a month ago.
A few hours before their dinner, Serena won the WTA tournament with Drake in attendance.
Earlier in the year, Drake was cheering on Serena at Wimbleton when she won the tournament for the sixth time. Afterwards, Drake took to his Instagram to congratulate Serena on her big win.
Drake, Instagram post:
This isn’t the first time that romantic rumors have surfaced between Serena and Drake. In 2012, Drake was reported to be feuding with Common, who used to date Serena, over the six-time U.S. Open champion.
Neither Drake nor Serena have commented on the speculated romance. However, this hasn’t stopped social media from chiming in on the couple.
Fans, Twitter posts:
A Drake and Serena baby would be more powerful than anything this world has ever known. Even Blue Ivy would raise a sippy cup in respect.

Missy Elliot made a comeback in 2014 when she performed on stage with Katy Perry during the Super Bowl halftime show. Since then, Pharrell had spoken out on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon about working with Missy on her new album.
Previously, Pharrell has had singers Lionel Richie and Alicia Keys as his advisors; so working with Missy on the show will be a whole new experience for the judge and his team.
It has already been revealed that Selena Gomez will be helping Gwen Stefani with her team, while Brad Paisley will help mentor Blake Shelton’s team and lastly Adam Levine recruited John Fogerty to come advise his team.
In addition, Adam Levine took to his Twitter a few weeks ago to announce that Rihanna will be serving as the “key advisor,” meaning that she will be working with all four teams as they prep for their performances. Previously in this role was super star Taylor Swift and Fun lead singer Nate Ruess.
NBC exectutive Bob Greenblatt recently spoke about Rihanna joining the show saying, “This is one of music’s true supervisors coming on board to influence the lives and careers of the performers.”
The Voice returns to NBC on Monday, September 21.
