Rumors are swirling that Ross has taken up with a Basketball Wives star, and as usual, there's messiness and drama surrounding this rumored hookup as well.

2. Who is Rick Ross' girlfriend, Jennifer Williams?

Best known as the wife of legendary basketball player Eric Williams, Jennifer Williams has been with Basketball Wives from its inception on VH1 in 2010. After being on the show for four seasons, she didn't return for the fifth season, though she came back as a recurring cast member in Season 6.  She came back as a regular cast member beginning with the seventh season, and there's some question as to whether she'll return after the eighth season. 

Though she was married to Eric Williams when Basketball Wives premiered, she made their divorce official just one year after its premiere.

3. Ross was most recently linked to Briana Camille. 

Though Ross has four children in total, his two youngest are with a woman named Briana Camille. Camille, who is the mother of Berkeley Hermes Roberts and Billion Leonard Roberts, has shared several family photos of herself with the rapper and their two children on her Instagram page. 

4. He was also briefly engaged to video vixen Lira Galore.

Back in 2015, Ross and Galore were thee hip hop power couple. So when Ross asked the video vixen to marry him, she immediately said yes. However, they split up just two months later reportedly because Ross switched it up on Galore. "Our relationship was phenomenal, but then he changed. He was doing a lot of sneaky things behind my back. I'm angry because I want our black men to value us, and they don't," she said.

5. Another of Ross' exes called out both Ross and Williams for flirting. 

Despite being most recently publicly linked to Camille, there's yet another of Ross' exes that called out the alleged new relationship between the Ross and Williams. A model by the name of Briteady took to her Instagram stories to blast Williams, claiming that Williams only befriended her to get close to Ross, and subsequently ended their friendship when she got what she wanted. The Instagram stories are no longer available, but you can check out the screenshots below. 

6. Williams previously said she wasn't sure if she wanted to return to Basketball Wives because of the drama. 

Despite her reputation on Basketball Wives, Williams seems to not be interested in having further drama in her personal or professional life. In fact, after an explosive eighth season of the show, Williams said she had no desire to return to the show because it was too tense for her. “I honestly would like to move forward in my life. I still am under contract, so I don’t know what’s gonna happen. I do know that allegedly the production company got fired, so I don’t know what’s gonna [happen] with the show, but I just want to move forward,” she said.

7. Neither Ross nor Williams have commented on the dating rumors. 

As of this writing, neither Ross nor Williams have commented on the dating rumors. Based on Williams' history of rising above the drama, it's highly unlikely that she will respond, either. However, we will keep you posted if anything changes.
