The “Passionfruit” rapper was all smiles when he escorted Rosalyn Gold-Onwude down the red carpet at the 2017 NBA Awards Monday night (June 26, 2017). Clad in a white tuxedo, Drizzy was spotted with his arms around the sports analyst as he posed for photos.
Drake later gushed about his date on Instagram, sharing a photo of them looking cozy at the star-studded event. “My stunning date for the evening @rosgo21,” he wrote.
An avid sports fan like Drake, Ros is a broadcaster who calls the play-by-play for WNBA’s New York Liberty during college basketball’s off-season. She’s won an Emmy for her work and has served as a sideline reporter for the Golden State Warriors since their 2014-15 NBA championship season.
Drake previously revealed is apparent crush on Ros, captioning a photo of them in 2015, “When the post game makes you forget about what happened during the actual game.”
Earlier this month, she addressed rumors she was dating NBA star Kevin Durant. “This year, there was a rumor I’m dating Kevin Durant. I’m not. I would not date any player on our team [the Golden State Warriors],” she told Bauce magazine. “It’s better professionally and as far as your rapport with the guys in the locker room to not do that. I take that seriously, but it comes with the territory.”
