He still seems to hold a torch for her, writing the tune “Love I Lost,” which is said to be about the tennis star. In the meantime, Serena still has the love and support from her sister, Venus Williams, who has battled her own drama: a chronic autoimmune disease that threatened to de-rail her career.
The opening lyrics read: “I remember she sit there with her thickness / Never played a game but I heard about them sisters.” After the split, Serena was rumored to have turned to Rihanna’s ex Drake, 25. But as this video shows, below, the sisters have plenty of fun together, as demonstrated during this fun night of karaoke.
” Williams lost her bid for the first Grand Slam in tennis in 27 years on Friday, Sept. The tennis star’s fans were quick to take to the Internet to point fingers at her then-rumored boyfriend, Drake, 29, for her defeat.
“I can’t get involved.” Serena was coy on who it was that pushed her to such heartbreak. Serena dated rapper Common, 40, on-and-off for three years, beginning in 2007.
"You'll find a better one."Shortly after, Williams asked Scherzinger about the Pussycat Dolls. "The audience guffawed, but Scherzinger kept her cool.
"The "Boomerang" singer shook her head and said, "I am rubbish at dating.

"I’m all bossed up," the ever-quotable Venus says elsewhere in the piece, noting her ongoing, refreshingly hands-on leadership with both Ele Ven by Venus, her fashion brand and V-Starr Interiors, her design firm.
Touching on the topic of sister Serena's forthcoming wedding (in an interview conducted before Serena revealed her 20-months-in pregnancy), Venus said, "I’ll wear whatever she wants me to. I’ll be dressed like Serena Williams." That's Queen Vee in a nutshell: fairly quick to defer to her beloved sister, and yet an independent woman to the core.
