He's been spotted cheering on Serena Williams courtside at Wimbledon and the US Open, and on Tuesday Drake stepped out to support his other half at New York Fashion Week. The rapper and the tennis ace have yet to confirm their relationship, but a loved-up appearance soon put rumours to rest.

Drake, who was given a coveted front row seat alongside Anna Wintour, watched attentively as the models strutted down the runway, showcasing the latest pieces from Serena's Spring/Summer 2016 collection.

Models Lily Aldridge and Gigi Hadid also sat in the audience, adding to the star-studded crowd.

At the end of the show Serena, 33, was given her time to shine and walked out in an all-black ensemble from her collection. The athlete-turned-fashionista wore a plunging long-sleeved top and showed off her legs in hot pants that featured long fringe detailing.

Once backstage, Serena and Drake were briefly reunited and chatted before mingling with other attendees. The Canadian rapper, whose real name is Aubrey Drake Graham, displayed his gentlemanly side as he kissed his girlfriend's hand.

The pair first sparked dating rumours back in June when the Know Yourself singer attended Wimbledon to cheer on his new love interest.

Serena and Drake have also enjoyed a string of romantic dates over the summer and after Serena's New York Fashion Week show, the couple headed to Bagatelle, a fancy French bistro in the trendy Meatpacking district.

The lovebirds were first linked in 2011 and while at first they were keen to downplay their romance, friends close to the couple have said it's "obvious" they're together.

"Publicly she says they're just friends but Drake has been by Serena's side throughout the tournament," a source told The Sun in July. "And when they've been away from the public and relaxed, it's pretty obvious they're together. Even Serena's team have been talking about it in the clubhouse to a few people they trust."
