Drake never confirmed his romance with tennis star Serena Williams, but it looks like the rapper has already moved on. TMZ reports he was recently spotted spending time with a model at The Nice Guy in West Hollywood.

According to the celebrity news site, the Know Yourself hitmaker spent more than two hours with Ravie Loso at the popular haunt. While in his company, she appeared to drop a not-too-subtle hint about her A-list date by tweeting "ever since I left the city you", which are the lyrics from his hit Hotline Bling.

In a bid to avoid courting media attention, the Canadian-born rapper arrived and left alone, with Loso entering the venue and exiting just minutes after him. In an interesting twist, Loso bears a striking resemblance to Williams, who crashed out of the US Open in a shock defeat to unseeded Italian Roberta Vinci back in September. She pulled out all the stops in a super short brown suede dress and cream patent court shoes, with her hair styled in tight curls.

Williams and Drake first sent the tongues wagging after they were snapped during a romantic dinner date in Cincinnati on 23 August. Days later they were they were caught on camera kissing in public after what appeared to be another date night. That time the footage, which was uploaded on Instagram by a Drake fan account, @ovodrakevideos, shows the Young Money rapper kissing the tennis star outside a building before seeing her to her SUV.

Despite the mounting speculation, the Wimbledon champ has remained coy about their relationship. Earlier in September, she told fans that the real love of her life was her sister Venus. Alongside a collage of the pair at different stages of their careers, she wrote: "She has my heart. ❤️ Memories make my heart fill with more joy than I can express. A lifetime with @venuswilliams will not be enough."

On 21 September, the 33-year-old athlete was spotted at the grand opening of the 28-year-old hip hop star's new eatery – Fring's in Toronto. For the outing, she choose a skin-tight white pencil skirt and a matching crop top beneath a tied denim blouse. She completed her sexy outfit with metallic heels and a pink handbag.
