Over the weekend, Serena Williams and Common — who had an intense two-year relationship that ended in 2010 — sparked reconciliation rumors as they both attended a charity event honoring Williams’ late sister in Compton on Friday night.
An eyewitness tells TMZ the tennis player and the rapper were spotted chatting backstage at the grand opening of the Yetunde Price Resource Center before Serena took the stage alongside her sister, Venus.
This is a cause near and dear to the athletes’ hearts as their sister, Yetunde Price, was murdered in a 2013 drive-by shooting. The center is set to open next month and will help those from the community affected by violence and trauma.
Although the exes left in separate cars and avoided taking photos together, the witness seemed to think something more serious was going on.
But alas, an insider insists the celebs are just friends. Borrrring. LOLz!
