Common, Serena get close

Rapper-turned-actor Common has scored another top date after reportedly courting tennis ace Serena Williams.

The acclaimed hitmaker and the sports star were recently spotted clubbing in both Los Angeles and Miami, Florida, where fellow revellers saw the pair holding hands.

They turned heads when they were denied access to Miami's hot Prive Nightclub - because Common was inappropriately dressed and did not meet the venue's strict dress code.

Common's previous most high-profile romance was with R&B star Erykah Badu, while Williams enjoyed a fling with director Brett Ratner. - Wenn
