Richard Williams Ordered to Get a Mental Evaluation


Last year Venus and Serena Williams' father Richard Williams filed for divorce from his second wife after 7 years of marriage  [click here if you missed that].

Now the proceedings have taken a disturbing turn...

From The Daily Mail
The father of Venus and Serena Williams has been ordered to undergo a mental evaluation after he failed to give 'coherent answers' during a deposition amid his bitter divorce battle.
Richard Williams, 76, was deposed on June 8, but had 'great difficulty making himself understood' and 'appeared to misinterpret many of the questions posed to him,' according to court documents obtained by DailyMail.com.
The deposition was postponed after attorneys for both parties agreed Williams should be evaluated to prove he can provide competent testimony.
Earlier this year Serena admitted her father backed out of her wedding at the last minute because he wasn't feeling like himself anymore [click here if you missed that].

Richard reminds me of one of the natives of Papua New Guinea with those gorgeous cheekbones and red-brown skin. It just shows how widespread that African gene is!

But all people his age ramble on and cant give str8 answers. This test isnt fair. Just need to dethrone another Black King!

It's probably the same test given to senior citizens to determine if they have dementia or Alzheimer's. He has a legal right to provide competent testimony, if he can't someone will have to speak for him.

@11:30, His features are common among West Africans....which he is clearly a descendant of. We don't have to go looking the world over for these features....smh

Damn this is sad, where are his daughters to hire lawyers and mediators to help him out.

^^3:59 ... It's obvious that he is African ... he also looks like people from the Pacific and I said that because our NEGROID gene is not relegated to just Africa ... we are the first people and it is obvious on continents other than Africa.

@8:56 - Don't feed the trolls. Let them simmer in their own despair.
