Serena Williams couldn’t be happier these days, with her new fiancé and baby on the way — but her father can’t say the same.
According to TMZ, the tennis champ’s dad has filed for divorce from his wife and accused her of stealing social security checks and forging his signature to steal property from him. Richard Williams filed docs in Florida to split from 38-year-old Lakeisha Williams, claiming that she forged his name on a deed to transfer one of his houses to herself, as well as cars. He also accused her of taking his guns, and being an alcoholic.

75-year-old Williams has a five-year-old son with Lakeisha, who he’s been married to for seven years. Richard feels that Lakeisha’s lifestyle endangers the child. Court documents show that she’s now living with someone who has “serious criminal, felony charges pending.” However, her attorney, Sandy Becher, released a statement saying, “All of the allegations are false and will be proven to be false when we litigate the case in court.”

Becher added that Richard is just trying to avoid paying child support and alimony. Fun fact, Lakeisha is less than a couple of years older than Venus and Serena Williams, who turn 37 and 36 years old this year.
