Drake, Serena Williams


Add restaurateur to Drake's résumé. 

On Monday night, the 28-year-old rapper had a low-key celebration for the opening of Fring's, his new restaurant in his hometown of Toronto, and there was one very important guest.

Longtime friend and now rumored girlfriend Serena Williams was spotted entering Drizzy's party, wearing stiletto pumps, a white skirt and denim top. Also in attendance at the opening were Jada Pinkett Smith and Jaden Smith.

"Serena and Drake are indeed a couple," a source tells E! News. "Drake and Serena have been spending more time together over the past few busy weeks. They have both been there for each other during really important times in their life."

The insider continues, "Drake is a really great support system for Serena and also Serena is for Drake. It was a great night at the opening of Drake's new restaurant. Serena got along with Drake's mom and they really hit it off. They were dancing and having a great time celebrating Drake."

The source adds that Serena loved the food, noting that "They are both foodies so they can appreciate what a great chef he teamed up with. Serena sees something really progressing with Drake. He has a really kind nature about him and is also extremely driven. This is the kind of man Serena can see herself ending up with."

No word if Drake's restaurant will offer "filets with the truffle butter", "scallops and glasses of Dolce," or crab like the one he eats "out in Malibu at Nobu," but the celeb did partner up with chef Susur Lee, of the restaurants Lee, Bent, and Luckee, and past contestant on Iron Chef and Top Chef Masters, on the venture.

So it should be good.

Drake has been a friend of Lee's sons Kai and Levi Bent-Lee for a while, which kind of explains the partnership, and according to Fashion Magazine, the menu will feature Asian hints as per Lee's signature, mixed with high-end snacks.

Champagne Papi shared a number of snapshots from his big night, which also showed a sweet photograph of himself hugging his mother, Sandi Graham, who obviously was there to support her successful son.

Congratulations, Drizzy!
