Us Weekly exclusively reported this morning that Serena Williams is dating Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. A joke? You’d be forgiven for thinking that, but “Exclusive: Serena Williams Is Dating Alexis Ohanian, the Co-Founder of Reddit” appears to be as real as any other Us Weekly post. It’s nestled on the website right in between “Khloe Kardashian Cuts Off Her Long Hair, Gets Lob” and “Russell Brand Slams Ex-Wife Katy Perry’s ‘Vapid’ Lifestyle.” Serena Williams Dating Reddit Guy. Okay.

According to Us Weekly’s “source,” Serena and Alexis (co-founder of Reddit) “met at a lunch.” Another source claims that though the relationship is “new,” Alexis is already calling Serena “babe”:

Now, the tennis pro is making love part of her routine, bringing her new guy, 32, to her workout at the Los Angeles School of Gymnastics on Saturday, Oct. 24. Says an onlooker, “He called her babe and they held hands.”

Haha. Okay. But what about Drake, the man Serena was reportedly dating just weeks ago? Yet another Us Weekly source says that relationship was merely a “flirty friendship.”

Us Weekly has an answer for everything, it seems.

What the magazine does not mention is what Alexis (man who co-founded site called Reddit) has been up to lately, aside from calling Serena Williams “babe.” According to Twitter, he’s been “catching up on TED talks” and using “memes” to “do good.”

And dating Serena Williams, if you can believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wikipedia lists Alexis’s height as 6’5”, but to be real, even that sounds like a lie.
