Serena Williams’ husband Alexis Ohanian on Friday responded on Twitter to Drake’s recent diss calling him a “groupie” to his wife in a series of tweets.
Drake’s highly-anticipated joint album with 21 Savage “Her Loss” dropped on Friday. On the solo track “Middle of the Ocean,” Drake raps “Sidebar, Serena, your husband a groupie/He claim we don’t got a problem but/No, boo, it is, like you comin’ for sushi/We might pop up on ’em at will like Suzuki.”
In a series of tweets about Ohanian’s November profile in The Information, he slyly addressed the lyrics.
“The reason I stay winning is because I’m relentless about being the absolute best at whatever I do — including being the best groupie for my wife & daughter,” Ohanian concluded. Williams responded to her husband’s tweets with smiling heart emojis.
Representatives for Drake, Ohanian, and Williams did not immediately respond to Insider’s requests for comment.
Williams married the Reddit founder in 2017, and they welcomed their daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. later that same year.
Drake and Williams were rumored to be romantically involved in 2015 after being spotted at dinner together. Despite dating rumors, the rapper has been a vocal supporter of Williams for years. In 2011, Drake tweeted, “I cannot wait to put it on you and make you sweat……….during our match this weekend.”
Ohanian is not the only celebrity to receive a heated shoutout on “Her Loss.” In Drake and 21 Savage’s new song, “Circo Loco,” Drake appears to reference fellow rapper Megan Thee Stallion with the lyrics, “This bitch lie ’bout getting shots, but she still a stallion / She don’t even get the joke but she still smiling.” The lyric references a 2020 incident between her and rapper Tory Lanez in which an alleged shooting occurred.
Megan responded with a string of tweets, writing “Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot.” Megan is in an ongoing legal battle with Lanez over.
