Serena Williams wins, love to love! Although it wasn't long ago that the tennis star was linked to Drake, it seems she's found romance with a sexy techie: Alexis Ohanion, 33, an entrepreneur, activist, and the co-founder of the popular website Reddit. Williams, 35, announced their engagement, appropriately, on the subpage or subreddit, r/isaidyes, which she just created for people to share their engagement stories and to tell her own. That's here:
Us Weekly reported that Williams and Ohanian began dating in October 2015. "They met at a lunch,” according to a source, who clarified that her relationship with Drake was just a flirtation.
As Reddit is known, these days, as a terrifying cave of trolls, I confess I immediately had concerns about the responses that I might see to Ohanian and Williams' revelation. So far, they've been celebratory and polite, and therefore, presumably, heavily moderated. Some, of course, did border on the profane:
"WHY ARE YOU ON REDDIT ALL DAY IF U WITH SERENA" wrote user YungSnuggie.
"I WOULDNT EVEN OWN A COMPUTER MY FACE WOULD BE 4 INCHES DEEP IN BOOTY ALL DAY
WHAT ARE YOU DOING MATE
WHY DO YOU EVEN HAVE A JOB YALL ARE LOADED
MY MAN U GLO'ED THE FUCK UP ON ALL OF US
GAME RECOGNIZE GAME AND I SEE U OUT HERE MY DUDE U A LEGEND IN THE STREETS NOW"
Williams is scheduled to play in the Australian Open in January, the Mercury news writes. Ohanian was reportedly not a tennis fan before meeting Williams, but as she was not, at least I doubt, a big redditor before they took to one another, I expect that he'll be court side from now on.via reddit
