Shady Matrimony-dom: Venus And Serena’s Old Man Married His PYT On The Low

- By Bossip Staff

In Money-Doesn’t-Take-The-Hood-Out-Ya news, Venus and Serena Williams now have a stepmother who is roughly two years older than Venus.

And Papa Williams manged to keep his nuptials out of the headlines for more than two months.

Richard Williams was quietly hitched two days before New Year’s Eve to a grocery store owner who is 37 years younger.

According to a marriage license in the Palm Beach County archives, the 69-year-old Richard Williams was legally wed for the second time Dec. 29 to a 32-year-old Broward native Lakeisha Graham.

They were engaged for nearly two years before Richard marched into the county courthouse [5] on PGA Boulevard to trade I dos with Graham, who bears a faint resemblance to hip-hop star Rihanna.

Page2Live broke the story of the May-December hookup in March 2009 when the lovebirds were on a shopping spree at Sports Authority in West Palm Beach and asked a paparazzi to snap their photo.

At the time, Richard first called Graham his new wife then said the two were planning to be wed after the 2009 Ericsson Open. And he wouldn’t talk about Venus and Serena’s feeling about the age difference.

Richard Williams, who’s credited for shaping Venus, 30, and Serena, 29, into No. 1-rated players, was divorced from their mom, 58-year-old Oracene, in 2002 — after allegations of domestic violence surfaced.

Three years earlier, Oracene turned up at Columbia Hospital in West Palm Beach with three broken ribs that nursing staff suspected were the result of a spat with Richard. Police looked into it and talked to the sisters, but no one was charged.

Now all Lakeisha has to do is manage to put Richard’s last marching soldiers to good use, and she’s set for life!

What about this doesn’t sound shady???

At least the new Mrs. Williams has been doing a good job of showing her new daughters her full support.

    So it’s hood to not want a fat old woman? The sexual revolution didn’t change human beings or economics. Bisexual grifters like fat old women, or specifically, their money.
