Earlier this month Venus and Serena Williams’ father filed for divorce accusing his wife of theft and abandonment [click here if you missed that].
Now the wife is firing back…
Lakeisha Juanita Williams has filed explosive new court docs in her divorce from Richard Williams — her husband of 7 years — claiming he’s been acting “erratic and hostile” and she’s afraid.
Richard initially filed for divorce last month accusing Lakeisha of being an alcoholic and stealing money — allegations she adamantly denies in her response, obtained by TMZ Sports.
In fact, 38-year-old Lakeisha claims she’s been essentially raising their child on her own because 75-year-old Richard refuses to get involved. She says school officials, teachers and doctors will corroborate her claims.
Lakeisha also claims she had to remove an “arsenal of firearms including an AK-47” from their home in fear he could harm her or their 5-year-old child
