Serena and Venus Williams’s father Richard Williams is battling dementia.
The 77-year-old is said to be ‘totally incapacitated to conduct any business’
Richard Williams was said to have been left with irreparable ‘brain damage’ after suffering two strokes and has difficulty speaking, according to court documents filed in Florida.
In 2016, it was reported he had suffered one stroke, but court papers show he in fact has had two.
Williams also suffers from a neurological condition which affects his mouth and means he can only speak through his son 45-year-old Chavoita LeSane, who has now been given power of attorney.
