Just as details about her birth are not in the public domain, there is also nothing known about Lakeshia’s childhood, parents, siblings (if any), and education. Still, several reports show she is well-educated.
Lakeisha Got Married to Richard Williams in 2010
After Richard Williams’ first two marriages to Betty Johnson and Oracene “Brandy” Price crashed, he decided to try again in 2010 when he tied the knot with Lakeisha Juanita Graham in the presence of their family and friends.
At the time they got married, Richard, who was born on February 14, 1942, was 68 years old while Lakeisha was 31, making her 37 years his junior and only one year older than Richard’s daughter, Venus Williams.
By 2017 They Were Headed for Divorce
Everything seemed to be going on well with the couple until 2017, when their marriage came crashing. In the said year, Richard filed for divorce from Lakeisha, making several shocking claims about her. In his petition, according to the Daily Mail, the tennis coach claimed that his then 38-year-old wife was an alcoholic.
He also alleged that Lakeisha was stealing his social security checks and passed ownership of their cars and his West Palm Beach house to herself by forging his signature. According to him, she went on to take out a $152,000-mortgage on the house afterward, imitating his signature again. Richard Williams further claimed that his estranged wife left their matrimonial home in August 2016, abandoning their only child in his care.
Amid their messy divorce, Lakeisha, on her part, also made several claims against her husband. She alleged in divorce papers that Richard “acted hostile” while they were married, and she was afraid he would hurt their little son. She also claimed that he used to drive through poor neighborhoods to look at women.
Surprisingly, just when people thought the couple’s marriage was on the verge of becoming officially over, Lakeisha Graham petitioned the court through her attorney in March 2022 to halt their divorce. Taking the fact that Richard suffered a series of strokes in recent times and is suffering from dementia into account, some people may have thought that the reason for this was because Lakeisha was taking care of her husband, but that was not it.
As claimed in the court papers filed by Sara Lawrence, Lakeisha’s attorney, she and Richard resumed living together in 2019, and they were now raising their son together. Additionally, it was also claimed in the paperwork that the divorce proceedings should be stayed because Lakeisha and Richard now share a very healthy sexual life.
“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,” said Sara Lawrence in the court documents.
Just two months after Lakeisha dramatically pumped the breaks on proceedings following their sizzling sex life, the bitter divorce came back on as Richard sued her for $1 million with regards to their home in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, which Richard claimed in court documents that Lakeisha remortgaged for only 10 bucks!
