(SL) – According to document, Richard Williams has filed for a protective order against his estranged wife after a bitter split five months ago.
Richard Williams accuses Lakeisha Williams to whom he was married to for seven years of cyber stalking and stalking violence. His son Chavoita Lesane filed the same claim. Lakeisha and Richard share one child together; a five year old little boy who reportedly is in Richard’s exclusive care.
At the time of their split, Richard claimed she transferred the deed of one of his homes to herself without his permission and then took out a $152,000-mortgage on it after, again, imitating his writing.
He also claims, she also transferred the titles of multiple cars to herself, took money out of their joint bank accounts and accounts he owned alone, and took some of his social security payments.
Williams alleges his wife is an alcoholic who stole his guns. But in documents filed in June, Lakeisha claimed she took his AK-47 after his behavior became hostile and erratic.
In reference to the protective order, a judge has denied both Richard and Chavoita’s petitions due to a lack of evidence.
The Czech, 27, lost 6-3 3-6 7-6 (7-2) to Venus Williams. It was her 21st match since returning to competitive action in May.
Television station WPBF (West Palm Beach, Florida) reported that the baby was born at St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach.
“I’m so thrilled for her, what a role model she’s going to be for that daughter,” ESPN commentator Chris Evert said during Friday’s afternoon broadcast of the US Open. “I told Serena this: It’s a love you’ve never felt before, and I know she’s probably experiencing that right now.”
ESPN reports, When asked whether Serena’s daughter had a two-handed backhand and enough depth on her forehand, Venus cracked.
“Oh, my gosh,” Venus said, smiling. “That’s hilarious.”Serena revealed in April that she was pregnant, posting a selfie on Snapchat with the caption “20 weeks” and later confirming that she and fiancé Alexis Ohanian were expecting their first child.
She learned she was pregnant just days before the Australian Open began. For her 23rd Grand Slam singles title, Serena beat big sister Venus in the final.
In true Serena fashion, she has been adamant she’ll return to the tour after having the baby. Her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, said in an interview recently that the plan, barring any complications, is for Williams to start training in November.
“The goal is to be ready for the Australian Open and then we’ll see,” Mouratoglou said of Williams’ desire to defend her title. “If she’s ready, she’ll compete. If not, we’ll delay the comeback. I don’t think she should compete if she’s not really ready.”
(SL) – There are reports coming out that Tennis pro Venus Williams has been declared responsible for a Florida car crash that killed an elderly man.
