THE father of Venus and Serena Williams has been accused of lying about his health battles after his sizzling sex life was exposed.
Richard Williams , 80, whose life story was told in King Richard starring Will Smith, was previously revealed to be suffering from irreparable “brain damage” and “dementia”.
Court documents from a divorce battle with his wife Lakeisha Williams, which included testimony from his own doctor, claimed he was totally incapacitated.
However, in March, Lakeisha, 43, asked a judge in Palm Beach, Florida, to halt the divorce – telling how the pair were still enjoying weekly sex sessions.
Speaking out about the bombshell, Richard’s daughter, Sabrina, accused her father of lying about his health conditions.
She said she wouldn't be surprised if her dad is lying about his medical condition.
His son, Chavoita Lesane, even posted a picture with Richard on Instagram on the day King Richard won five Oscars, saying his dad had driven to his house.
She laughs: "Wow, that doesn't sound like someone who's had two strokes, come on, he doesn't even have dementia! I'm done with playing like that. He needs to stop playing all the time.”
Sabrina Williams is Serena and Venus’ eldest half-sister through dad Richard's first marriage.
Richard walked out on Sabrina's mom when she was only eight years old, saying he was going to buy her a bike and never returned.
Sabrina, 57, claims she never had any of the attention that the Williams sisters had from their dad, seeing him only a couple of times during her adult years, and he’s never even seen his two grandchildren, late Alphonse and Elijah.
While Sabrina will be remembering her son this weekend, she laughs while reading about her father's most recent escapades in the media.
His third wife, Lakeisha, 43, is 37 years younger than 80-year-old Richard, and they share a son Dylan, now nine.

The pair have been going through a messy divorce for the last five years, with Richard accusing his wife of remortgaging his own home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, by faking his signature – and setting up a failed trucking business with the proceeds.
After that was finally settled earlier this year – with the house being repossessed and sold at auction – the divorce was suddenly halted in March when Lakeisha declared that they had reconciled and were enjoying a "sizzling sex life".
Her attorney Sara Lawrence wrote in court papers: “The wife believes that the parties have reconciled and have engaged in an active marital life including having regular weekly sexual relations including but not limited to on January 9, 2022, the night before filing this motion.”
This claim is even more bizarre, as during court proceedings, Richard’s health rapidly deteriorated and it was revealed he’d suffered two strokes, with his doctor saying he had dementia and irreparable brain damage.
Sabrina said: “That is a big gap, 37 years, I didn't think he'd go with someone that young, what do they have in common?
“Well, it seems like sex weekly! I'm laughing, wow!
"If he's still able to keep producing children at his age, then that's why I always said God was a man, because only a man can keep producing kids."
After Will Smith smacked Chris Rock for making a joke about Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaven head, Chavoita released a statement the next day saying "we don't condone anyone hitting anyone else unless it's in self-defense," which stunned Sabrina.
She says: "Oh Lord. It's so, so weird.
"Then when Will Smith hit out at Chris Rock, they sent that message out saying they don't condone violence.
"You, Richard, of all people? I just wanted God to send down a lightning strike right there and then.”
According to a report, Richard had returned to "live with family" at a gated community in West Palm Beach.
