Palm Beach Gardens tennis prodigies Serena and Venus Williams soon will have a stepmom who’s their age.
Dad Richard Williams, 67, is engaged to a 30-year-old woman whom he presented to Page2Live lensman Fred Montana. Montana bumped into them at Sports Authority in West Palm.
â€œHere, get the first pictures of me and my new wife, said Williams, who manages his daughters’ careers. He introduced the woman as Lakeisha Graham as the two filled the trunk of a Porsche SUV with purchases.
When I called Williams today, he said the two werenâ€™t exactly married yet but were going to be.
We’ll probably do it after the tournament in Key Biscayne (the Sony Ericsson Open, March 25-April 5),Williams said.
But when asked if the sisters approved of his marrying a woman 37 years younger, Williams hung up.
Lakeisha Graham, soon will be Serena and Venus’ stepmom
Williams was divorced from Oracene, 56, the woman with whom he had Serena, 27, and Venus, 28, in 2002.
Three years earlier, Oracene turned up at West Palm Beach’s Columbia Hospital with three broken ribs that nursing staff suspected was the result of domestic violence. Police looked into it but no one was ever charged.
Graham, meanwhile, is listed as the owner of small grocery store near Fort Lauderdale. She’s been living with Williams for a while, since her car registration and her fishing and hunting licenses show Williams’ address, a $750,000 home in Palm Beach Gardens.
How do you feel about Richard Williams’ may-december romance?
Typical Palm Beach, but it’s gross!
It’s true love. More power to them!
