Kanye West and Selita Ebanks have been causing quite a stir after they were spotted eating and partying together Saturday night in NYC’s trendy Meatpacking district, sparking rumors of a romance and reports of some rather public smooching.

However, a friend of the Victoria’s Secret model tells OK! that, while the two did indeed dine together at STK, it wasn’t exactly an intimate, candlelit affair. “Selita had dinner with a big group of people including her father, Serena Williams and Kanye," explains the pal.

In fact, says the friend, tennis star Serena is the common link between Selita and Kanye as she is good friends with both of them.

After dinner, the group headed en masse to nearby hotspot Tenjune. But at the end of the night, the friend tells OK! that no steamy hook-up happened: “Selita left with her dad, not Kanye.”

So it seems that Selita, who was recently dating NY Giants’ Osi Umenyiora and is the former fiancée of Nick Cannon, and Kanye will live the good life as friends… For now.

A rep for Selita declined comment on the model’s personal life.
