A report came out two weeks ago saying that Serena Williams was dating her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, after photos were published showing the two awfully cozy on the street. Even though Williams and Mouratoglou were photographed with arms around one another, and Serena had her hand down Patrick’s back pocket, the tennis star is trying to tell us that they’re not dating.
More pictures of the two together have been published, including ones of them out shopping and Mouratoglou holding Serena’s purse. But if you think they’re dating, you’ve got the wrong idea, says Serena. Check out this tweet she sent on Sunday:
Dear camera man in Milan please stop following my around! Your pictures will have people assuming false things!!!! Ugh #OverIt

You got that? It’s the photographers’ fault that we’re all thinking they’re dating. I mean who would honestly get that idea after seeing Serena put her hand on her coach’s behind? Shame on us for making that improbable leap.
