The engagement rumor mill is busy churning ‘em out this year. Last week, the gossip was that Regina King and Malcolm-Jamal Warner had decided to wed (which she later disputed). This week, it’s Common and Serena’s turn.
Serena Williams’ best friend Selita Ebanks appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show” Monday , and when the day-time host asked about the rumor, Selita didn’t actually deny it.
Selita just said, “I’m the best friend, and I wouldn’t be the best friend if I told you, so I don’t know.”
An answer like that in court could land you behind bars, but we’re still not sure Common and Serena are guilty of pending matrimony. Several media outlets are reporting that Serena has denied the rumor.
Serena and Common have been dating for about three years now, and all Selita would share is her opinion that Common would be a smart man to lock Serena down. If nothing else, it seems their relationship is back on track. That’s a step in the right direction when you consider that they broke up briefly last summer.
According to Wendy’s sources, Common presented Serena with a ring over the holidays.
