It was a lunch date with the power to change Drake's music forever. Us Weekly reports that Serena Williams is dating Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, after meeting at an otherwise inconsequential lunch. "It's new," said the source, behind which the sounds of a particularly sad Drake album's birth were heard.

Drake and Serena Williams, an OTP History

Music and sports fans considered Drake and SerenaAubrena, if you will — to be a One True Pairing. Still, both parties maintained that they limited their relationship to a "flirty friendship," despite whispers of a mysterious love triangle with Common and conspiracy theories suggesting it was Drake's fault that Williams lost the Grand Slam.

Ohanian, however, isn't so different from Drake. While the latter is the internet's current meme of choice, Ohanian is the co-founder of Reddit and thus responsible for, like, half of what's on the internet to begin with. If this means anything, it's that Drake's next single will be filled with cryptic lyrics referring to "love" as a double entendre.
