The mother of Drake has strong opinions about whom her son should date.
Rumors that romantically link the Canadian rapper with some of the hottest female celebrities to date are expected. After all, Drake is quite a catch himself. He is talented, successful, and good-looking. To date, he’s been linked to Hailey Baldwin, Nikki Minaj, Serena Williams, and Rihanna. Yet his association with the Barbadian singer seems to stand out.
News of the rapper’s intention to propose to the Rihanna recently came out. Sources also revealed that she might consider his proposal. Yet, one person would likely stand in the way of Drake’s plan, and that’s his mom Sandi Graham.
According to HollywoodLife, the rapper’s mom is not a fan of RiRi. Moreover, she has the perfect girl in mind for her boy. However, would he submit to her wishes? As it turns out, Graham is rooting for tennis star Serena Williams who she believes is “the one.” As a mom, she reportedly wants him to settle down, have a family, and raise her grandkids with a wholesome girl. Williams supposedly fits the bill perfectly.
“Drake and his mother are really tight and like the good mensch he is. He listens to her. Sandi doesn’t really think anyone’s good for Drake, but if she had to choose one woman he’s been with it would be Serena. She’s a champion and Sandi’s encouraging him to attend all her upcoming matches at Wimbledon and make a serious play at her,” an insider told the publication exclusively.
However, her plan might hit a snag, as Drake seemed hesitant to attend her Wimbledon matches. Apparently, the rapper is worried his presence at the event would distract her and therefore jinx her game. Hence, he’s kept his distance but still monitors her performance. A separate report from HollywoodLife revealed his last appearance at the 2015 U.S. Open likely cost Williams the match versus Roberta Vinci.
Drake and Serena Williams reportedly made out at the Wimbledon 2015 finals. Yet at the time, neither party confirmed their relationship. Although the rapper had posted several Instagram pics commending the star athlete.
