Are Common and Serena Williams Engaged?Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 at 4:00 pm.
Venus, get that maid of honor dress ready!
The rumor mill is working overtime with reports that Common may have served his beau Serena Williams up with a ring and the tennis star’s BFF is only fueling the chatter.
Williams’ home girl Selita Ebanks made an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show this week, and when the host asked about the rumored engagement–noting her sources said Common gave Serena a ring over the holidays–the former Victoria’s Secret model played it coy. ”I’m the best friend, and I wouldn’t be the best friend if I told you, so I don’t know,” Selita told Wendy. She added, “You know what, he would be smart if he did marry her. So, he’d be a very smart man.”
Common and Serena started dating around 2007 and had a brief split last year. I always thought they were an odd couple, but something about them just seems to work. If they are aisle-bound, Serena will become a stepmother: Common has a 13-year-old daughter, Omoye Assata Lynn, from a previous relationship.
Common and Serena, man and wife? Can you dig it?
