Richard Williams' Wife Files for Bankruptcy

Earlier this week the 43-year-old estranged wife of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams' 80-year-old father, Richard Williams, filed to halt their divorce proceedings insisting the two were back together and enjoying a sizzling sex life [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Mrs. Williams has filed for bankruptcy in an effort to hang on to Venus and Serena's childhood home...

Venus and Serena Williams' stepmom has filed for bankruptcy in a last-ditch bid to keep the now crumbling home where estranged husband 'King' Richard turned his daughters into tennis legends, can reveal.
The move by Lakeisha Williams, 43, is another twist in the often bitter saga of her marriage to the 80-year-old former coach – including new divorce court papers revealed by in which she claims they have reunited and enjoy regular steamy sex.
Williams, who has suffered several strokes and is battling dementia, moved third-wife Lakeisha into his then palatial home in an ultra-rural part of Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, after they wed in 2009.
But the couple – who have son a Dylan, nine – split in 2017. Williams then filed for divorce accusing his wife of forging his signature to have his name removed from the property records, leaving just her name on the paperwork.
February 17 Lakeisha filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy, can reveal.
Chapter 13 is often used to help people save their homes from foreclosure and so the petition dramatically halted the sell-off at the last minute, leaving the lender furious.
Simon's legal team has blasted the bankruptcy move, saying in a response to the court: 'This motion is replete with half-truths and inaccuracies.'
Lakeisha is begging to be allowed to repay total 'consumer' debts of $491,562 in installments over five years, can reveal.
And her application to the United States Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of Florida, reveals intimate details of her income and possessions.
The biggest debt is listed as $472,796.98 to Simon as the result of a loan on the home in 2017. And she cites Richard Williams as a co-debtor on her application, despite his name no longer appearing on the deeds.
