NEW YORK, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Drake and girlfriend Serena Williams are not engaged, contrary to reports.

OK! magazine claimed this week Drake had proposed to Williams in his hometown of Toronto, ON. Sources told the publication the pair are keeping the news secret, but "now that [Drake] has her, he isn't letting her go."

Drake and Williams have been friends for years, and re-sparked dating rumors after the rapper was spotted cheering the tennis player on at Wimbledon in July. The couple were seen kissing following Williams' Women's Tennis Association tournament win in August.

"Things are heating up with the duo and all of Serena's friends approve of the pair," an insider told E! News after the sighting. "[Drake is] a true gentleman and is very supportive ... They are both private people when it comes to their personal lives."

Drake released the mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late in February, and followed up with the collaborative mixtape What a Time to Be Alive with Future in September. Both albums debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
