New photos show Serena Williams’ stepmother frolicking on a beach in a plunging swimsuit as the crumbling home battle rages on
NEW photos show Serena Williams’ stepmother frolicking on a beach in a plunging swimsuit like she hasn’t a care in the world – amid her messy divorce from the star’s father.
The US Sun has obtained Facebook snaps of Lakeisha Williams, 44, who admitted to forging her estranged husband Richard’s signature to put her house in her name.
The frail Richard, 81, who was portrayed by actor Will Smith in Hollywood biopic King Richard, previously said he was desperate to finalize his divorce after years of court proceedings.
The couple, who met at a tennis match in Miami, married in 2010 and share custody of their son Dylan, 10, in West Palm Beach, Florida.
They have been publicly pictured at a number of tennis tournaments supporting Serena, 41, and Venus, 42.
Since filing for divorce in 2017, he has had to face a lengthy court battle with his baby mom.
Meanwhile, Lakeisha has shared a number of photos of her “luxury life” on her Facebook account over the years.
In a newly unearthed snap, she can be seen wearing a black and white hat as she poses in the shallows on the beach while soaking up the sun, seemingly on holiday.
The former couple’s son can be seen at the edge of the shot, reaching out for his mother.
A friend posted below: “Dylon is getting so big. Looks like RICHARD (sic).”
A second photo shows Lakeisha in a wide-brimmed sun hat and sunglasses in her swimwear while cheekily sticking her tongue out at the camera.
A vintage shot shows her beaming as she poses with Richard in 2014, before their split, as he stares at the camera in a black and white t-shirt and black jacket.
Another shows her posing in lilac heels in front of a graffiti wall while wearing a white summer outfit with a large black handbag slung over her shoulder.
Richard is still pushing to save his marital property in Palm Beach Gardens, which he claimed in court filings was passed on to Lakeisha for just $10.
Lakeisha then turned to “hard lender” David Simon, who loaned her $279,000, which court documents say she squandered on a failed truck deal.
New files released by The US Sun this week show Lakeisha allegedly went ‘AWOL’ to prevent her divorce from Richard.
It turns out a judge needed to step in and issue an urgent ex parte order ordering the former Miami stripper to comply with mediation and open up her financial records for Richard’s legal time.
Lakeisha, who lost a home many years ago after running into debt, was warned she could face jail time if she continued her behavior, according to court documents.
An ex parte order will only be issued in extreme circumstances.
Richard and son Chavoita LeSane told The US Sun there were issues with his ex before finding out he’d lost his $1.4million home to Lakeisha.
She delays the sale of the Palm Beach Gardens home by repeatedly trying to file for bankruptcy, and the third attempt drags through the courts.
This week, Chavoita revealed that Lakeisha lived in a small outbuilding on the grounds of Richard’s former home, which due to her neglect is in such a dilapidated state it’s worth half its value.
He said: “As far as I know Lakeisha now lives in what we call the ‘dog kennel’ next to the main house.
“My dad converted a clubhouse into a small studio and I’m told she lives there with Betty [her aunt]. They’re just playing games.”
