From musicians to athletes to Hollywood producers, the curvaceous sex appeal of Serena Williams has been a red hot magnet for the stars.
As the Grand Slam queen and ultimate tennis diva, Serena Williams has dated many entertainment industry. Among her boyfriends include movie mogul Brett Ratner and most recently rapper Common.
Serena and Ratner were dating back in 2004 until 2006 before the couple split. The Rush Hour director still says of Serena, 'I wouldn’t say I’m “best friends” with Serena [Williams], but we’re friends.'
Serena and Common began their romance at the end of 2007 before parting ways in April of 2010. "His schedule is actually worse than mine. He didn't want the responsibility. It's really tough," Serena told Harpers-Bazaar in an interview following the break-up.
She has also been romantically linked with footballer Keyshawn Johnson who she dated in the early half of 2003. Keyshawn said of Serena at the time, "But we're not in a relationship. It's a friendship." And later Serena was rumored to be with NBA'er and former Duke star Corey Maggette. But Williams denied dating either player.
In early 2007, Serena began dating actor Jackie Long. Long has appeared in several films including ATL and The Comebacks. But their relationship soon broke apart in the fall of that year.
