This is kind of big deal, if only because AOL has seeming confirmed in a completely innocuous e-mail what the Internet has been buzzing about for three days.
Rumors of the pair’s romance first bubbled to the surface last weekend when Wilson was spotted at a Sunday Seattle Mariners game trying to look inconspicuous in dark sunglasses (and what, no uniform?) sitting right next to a woman who conspicuously looked a lot like Ciara.
Neither party has confirmed or denied their coupledom, but thanks to AOL, it’s out there. Ciara is Russell Wilson’s “date” to the White House Correspondents Dinner and the streets will be watching. This is the same woman whose recent single “I Bet” is a Taylor Swiftian sendup of her ex-fiance, the rapper Future, with whom she has an 11-month-old son: “I bet you start loving me. As soon as I start loving someone else. Somebody better than you.”
We see you Ciara.
