Serena and Venus Williams father swindled by estranged wife

Tennis greats Serena and Venus Williams’ father Richard has been disabled for some time now following two strokes he suffered. 

In the midst of that comes the news that he has been swindled out of his Florida home on his 75th birthday.

According to a report on she illegally remortgaged the property to buy a truck, which was found smashed up 1,200 miles away in New York.

In the latest legal drama surrounding the couple stems from a lender demanding Richard Williams to pay back borrowed money. But Williams claims his estranged wife forged his signature – so she should be the one to pay. 

The Daily Mail reported that Williams made the claim that an associate of Lakeisha’s pretended to be him so she could borrow nearly $300,000 of equity on his house from ‘hard lender’ – not traditional mortgage lender – David Simon, who charged 12 percent interest.
