Drake and Serena Williams are currently dating, and after Serena was defeated at the US Open, many took to social media to blame the rapper for her loss since he was in attendance.
Now Drake is being accused of causing some drama at Serena’s recent fashion show during New York Fashion Week.
Page Six writes:
Sitting front-row with Anna Wintour, Gigi Hadid and Lily Aldridge at Williams’ show Tuesday, Drake seemed more concerned with the show’s soundtrack, which used his songs, including “Back to Back,” which played during the finale.
Following the show, Drake first went backstage to congratulate Williams, where he was seen kissing her hand. Then, “All of a sudden he came busting out from the backstage into the runway area and approached the DJ,” says a spy. “There was an animated discussion and Drake was upset,” the witness continued. ”The DJ kept raising his arms as if to say, ‘It wasn’t my fault.’”
We hear Drake — who was blamed by angry tennis fans for distracting Williams, causing her to lose her semifinal to Roberta Vinci and missing out on Grand Slam history — was upset because the wrong music mix was played during the show. Sources said the version of his “Back to Back” was supposed to be a clean edit, but the cut mistakenly played was packed with curse words and went out live to HSN viewers. Even worse, “They didn’t want Anna Wintour to be horrified sitting there with curse words playing,” said a spy.
