Richard Williams, the father of South Florida tennis superstars Serena Williams and Venus Williams, has filed for divorce from his young wife in a West Palm Beach courthouse.

He is claiming a litany of alleged wrongs from the Miami-born woman he married in 2010, then had a son with two years later.

Among other things, the 75-year-old former tennis coach says #LakeishaWilliams, 38, is stealing his Social Security check, drinking herself into oblivion and forging his signature on official papers.

He claims the registered nurse’s aide deeded one of his houses to herself by faking his handwriting on the paperwork and switched ownership of several cars. Richard also alleges she forged his signature on an application for a $152,000 mortgage she eventually obtained.

Although he no longer trains Venus and Serena, who won a total 11 Miami Open finals, Richard is often credited with teaching the sport to his famous daughters and building the foundations that would eventually make them into superstars,

His lawyer didn’t return a call and email for comment, but Miami attorney Sandy Becher, who represents Lakeisha, called Richard’s petition “outrageous.” .

The Williams Sisters father was also just inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame! .
