Richard Williams, the father of tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams, is divorcing his much-younger wife, Lakeisha Williams. The 75-year-old claims that his 38-year-old wife used his social security checks without his knowledge and forged his signature. He also claims that she has become an alcoholic.

 

 

1. Williams Claims Lakeisha Used His Social Security Checks & Left Him for a ‘New Person’: Williams, who lives in West Palm Beach, Florida, claims in the divorce documents that Lakeisha has been stealing his social security checks and forged his signatures on documents so she would own their cars and house, according to the Daily Mail. He claims they have been living apart since August 2016 and has been caring for their son by himself.

2. Lakeisha’s Attorney Denies the Allegations & Says Williams Is Trying to Avoid Paying Child Support: In a statement to TMZ, Lakeisha’s attorney, Sandy Becher, denied the allegations, claiming that Williams is trying to get out of paying child support and alimony. “All of the allegations are false and will be proven to be false when we litigate the case in court,” Becher told TMZ.

3. They Are Parents to 9-Year-Old Dylan: Lakeisha, who is less than a year older than Venus Williams, and Williams are the parents of Dylan. Their son is now 9 years old. In a 2013 interview with The Post Game, Venus said that her young half-brother is a “pretty cute little guy.” She added, “He’s massive. I’m sure he will be nice and tall.”

 

 

Venus also said that it isn’t likely that her father will coach Dylan if he develops and interest in tennis. “I think my dad is tired of tennis, so if someone teaches him, it will probably be up to Serena and I and the rest of our sisters to, I guess, get him on the court,” Venus said in 2013.

4. Williams & Lakeisha Were First Seen Together at a Store in 2009: Williams and Lakeisha have been a couple since at least 2009. In March 2009, Page2Live in Florida reported that they were seen together at a Sports Authority. At the time, Graham owned a small grocery store in Fort Lauderdale and had been living with Williams for some time already. Her car registration listed Williams’ address.

 

 

5. Williams Was Investigated for Abuse Against Oracene Price & Charges Weren’t Filed: As The Smoking Gun notes, Williams was investigated for spousal abuse in 1999 after his second wife, Price, suffered three broken ribs. A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy even noted in the documents that “it is highly suspected by myself that Ms. Williams may have been assaulted by either her spouse and/or another family member.”

However, Williams was never charged, but rumors of family issues among the Williams have always followed them. As The New Yorker noted in a profile of Richard Williams, he has denied abusing his wife and Venus and Serena do not comment on the rumors.
