Richard and Lakeisha were married in 2010 and began their divorce in 2017 and he has been in a court battle ever since. Both share custody of their 10-year-old son Dylan. Richard spoke to the Sun and said that "If I get the house, that'll be fine.
If I don't get the house, that's fine, either way, up or down, we'll be happy. I just want a divorce. It's been six years, man. Just a bunch of trash, trash, trash. I'm so tired of that trash now. Too many women like me, but I don't want to do that anymore.
I don't trust women anymore. I just want to keep to myself, I could live a life more calm." The two began their divorce and everything went according to plan until they reached Palm Beach Gardens, which he says was passed to Lakeisha for the minimum amount of just ten dollars and he claims she forged her signature on the deed.
Lakeisha then took out a $279,000 loan from David Simon so he could start a trucking business which ultimately went bankrupt. Richard is still going to court to get the property back, but the judge has already dismissed the lawsuit, as Lakisha claims the property was part of a child support agreement with Richard.
He also said that Lakeisha was a good wife and even though they have a legal problem, he doesn't want to badmouth her.
Richard's legacy: Serena and Venus
In more than twenty years, Serena and Venus won 121 singles tournaments, 4 mixed doubles tournaments and occupied a total of more than 300 weeks at number one in singles and eight weeks also in the doubles rankings.
After the 2002 French Open, Venus and Serena were number one and two respectively in the singles rankings. Both are part of the small group of tennis players who have won the most titles ever. Partnering in women's doubles tournaments, the Williams sisters have won 14 Grand Slam titles and on one occasion won 4 consecutively (from Wimbledon 2009 to Paris 2010), but not in the same calendar year.
There's no shortage of achievement at the Olympics either: they've captured a total of four gold medals each, including three together in women's doubles and one each in singles. Venus is also the tennis player, including men, with the most Olympic medals won, five.
Between them, they also kindled an intense rivalry. In fact, they have met 31 times, of which 9 times in a Grand Slam final. They are, therefore, the second pair who have met more times in the women's singles finals behind Chris Evert-Martina Navrátilová, who have met 14 times. Serena finished ahead in number of matches won (19-12).
