After her disappointing loss in the first round of the French Open back in April (during which she was an emotional wreck), Serena Williams began working with a new coach in France. In the process, she may also have found herself a new boyfriend.
Serena and Patrick Mouratoglou were recently spotted in France together looking like far more than just a teacher and his pupil. As you can see from these photos that were posted on the French website PK Tennis, Williams and Mouratoglou were walking down the streets of Paris with their arms around each other. At one point, Serena even had her hand in Mouratoglou’s back pocket. Saucy!
“She said, ‘I want to win Wimbledon, I want to start now,'” he explained. “That’s simple. That’s how it started.”
The interesting thing here is that all we ever hear from Serena is how she doesn’t do relationships. Since the beginning of the year, she has talked about how she hasn’t been on a date in forever, how she is totally done dating and how she plays better when she’s single. Maybe dating someone who helps you with tennis eliminates all those concerns?

Tim Tebow may not be the only football player Lolo Jones was anxious to meet after returning home from the London Olympics. As we all know, the personal life of Lolo is something that infatuates much of the general public due in part to the fact that she is so open about it and also because she openly admits she is a virgin. If you choose to believe this report from MediaTakeOut.com, Jones may have actually found herself a boyfriend — Detroit Lions tough guy Ndamukong Suh.
Well MediaTakeOut.com confirmed that she’s now got an NFL superstar BOYFRIEND. According to a TOP MTO snitch, LoLo attended Sunday’s Lions game as a PERSONAL GUEST of their star player Ndamukong Suh.
The insider told MediaTakeOut.com, “Lolo and [Ndamukong] have been kickin it for a while, and they are serious. [Ndamukong Suh] is very religious too, and respectful . . . they make a great couple.”

While the world for some reason waits for Ryan Lochte to find a girlfriend, we may finally have a contender. The NY Daily News recently reported that Lochte was at a party hosted by shoe designer Brian Atwood at the Four Seasons restaurant last Wednesday where he met Miss USA Olivia Culpo. As you can see, the two posed for a couple of photos together. Lochte also stopped for a picture with Donald Trump, who owns the Miss Universe Organization.
“Things are still very new, because they just met, and they obviously aren’t exclusive,” says an insider, but they “definitely like each other.”
“Everyone was trying to get a piece of Ryan at the party, but he spent a chunk of his time talking to Olivia,” says a second source. That source claims Lochte invited Culpo to his “Guys Fashion’s Night Out” event at Ainsworth Park restaurant last Thursday, but Culpo was already booked, so they reunited at the Sherri Hill show Friday.
A spokeswoman for Lochte cautioned that it is “too early” to say that he is dating Culpo, noting that they have been getting along and have gotten to know each other but are “not dating.”
Now that the Olympics have ended, Lochte might actually have time for a girlfriend instead of just one-night stands like his mother previously stated. Lochte has already laid out specific guidelines for what he looks for in a woman, so time will tell if Culpo meets the requirements. Unless, of course, he tells her about the stupid phrase he tried to trademark and she decides she’s had more than enough.

TMZ says Johnson won’t sign divorce papers or work on a divorce settlement because he doesn’t want one. But that may not matter.
According to Florida law, a judge may be able to grant a divorce regardless of Chad’s wishes.
Chad has been talking on Twitter like their marriage isn’t over, and he even supposedly got a tattoo of Lozada on his leg after their violence incident to show his commitment to her.
If Chad were so committed and dedicated to Lozada, then why was he supposedly cheating on her with multiple women? Much like his playing career, Johnson fails to recognize when something in his life is over.

That Eva Longoria sure loves her pro athletes, doesn’t she? Divorced from Tony Parker and reportedly spotted with Matt Kemp earlier this year, the actress seems to have been dating Mark Sanchez for a few months.
We first passed along a report in July that said the two had been on secret dates together, and now the New York Post caught a picture of the two together. They reportedly were having dinner at Sanchez’s home in Bedminster, NJ, when the photo was snapped.
The New York Post reports that Sanchez has had plenty of women over throughout the summer, but Longoria has been around plenty recently. This can’t be good news for Mark. Had he read the breakdown of Tony Parker’s stats, he’d know this could be a curse.

Italian publication La Gazetta dello Sport first reported the news that the star tennis player and struggling basketball player have separated. The two began dating in 2010 and got engaged later that year, but they have been broken up for a few months, Sharapova confirmed on Friday.
“It’s been since the end of spring actually,” Sharapova told reporters. “I was waiting for someone to actually ask me that question, but nobody did directly.”
Vujacic also confirmed the news today from training camp with his Turkish team Anadolu Efes Istanbul.
Vujacic hasn’t played in the NBA since the 2010-2011 season. He played six seasons with the Lakers after being drafted by the team in 2004. He was traded to the Nets in December 2010 and finished the season with the club. He played last year in Turkey, and this will be his second season abroad. His time out of the country contributed to problems between the couple; Sharapova says he wasn’t home for 10 months.
While Vujacic’s career is struggling, Sharapova’s is thriving. The Russian tennis player has reached the finals in three of the last five grand slam events, and she won at the French Open to give her the career grand slam. She’s been raking in the endorsement deals, and even got into the candy business last week.
Now that the two are over, you know there will be plenty of men eager to step in with attempts to woo Sharapova. No word if Novak Djokovic would be interested given all the flirting they’ve done.
Kris Humphries reportedly is being sued by a woman who alleges he gave her herpes. TMZ provides details of the case:
Kayla Goldberg claims she met Kris in August, 2010 at the Newsroom Cafe on Robertson Blvd. in L.A. They flirted, exchanged numbers, and she claims that night they met up at Trousdale nightclub on the Sunset Strip.
According to the suit, Kris came on to Kayla, touching, kissing and dancing with her. Kayla claims he took her to his hotel and they had sex multiple times … including oral sex. The suit claims during a portion of the sexual encounter Kris did not wear a condom.
The lawsuit claims Kris did not inform Kayla he had herpes — and she claims in the suit that he did indeed have the disease.
Kayla says a week later she was diagnosed with herpes. Her symptoms included a sore throat, fever, body aches and immobilizing pain, as well as extreme vaginal irritation and painful legions on her genitalia.
At least we have achieved some consistency: Kayla is the second woman to claim Humphries has sex without using a condom. But really? You’re going to sue him for allegedly giving you an STD? If this isn’t an awful example of someone making a cash grab at a rich person’s expense, then I don’t know what it is.
But I do know that this is much more than what Kris Humphries signed up for when he got involved with Kim Kardashian. You think he accepted that relationship with the intention of one day showing up on TMZ because he’s being sued for allegedly giving someone herpes? Two years ago, this barely would have made a ripple in the world. Now it’s front-page material. He did it to himself.
