Venus Williams is taking a page right out of the Jennifer Lopez love manual and dating the help.
Lopez has been making headlines stepping out with her backup dancer Casper Smart and Venus has followed suit by dating sexy Cuban model Elio Pis, according to People magazine. Elio was hired by Venus to model menswear from her clothing line EleVen by Venus Williams and it seems the two quickly engaged in a romantic match, both scoring love-love.
While it is unclear when the 32-year-old tennis champ mixed business with pleasure, Venus was seen holding hands with the 24-year-old model outside the Arthur Ashe Stadium at the 2012 U.S. Open. The new couple also sat side-by-side in the stands to cheer on Serena Williams during her semifinal match against Sara Errani of Italy.
