Richard Williams: Venus & Serena Williams’s half-sister talks about father in biopic ‘King Richard’ + Says he left his eldest child in dire straits while focusing on daughter’s tennis career
To do King Richard draw a road covered scene Richard Williams?
Earlier this month, a biopic about Venus and Serena Williams‘father has been revealed. The movie is titled King Richard, focus on how Richard Williams helped his famous daughters succeed and elevated them to the tennis stars they are today.
While the biopic – which star Will Smith–Big paints a lovely picture of Richard Williams, one of his other children is challenging this positive description! Sabrina Williams–Venus and Serenahalf-sister – recently spoke out against King Richard and her father. About the movie, she initially said:
“It’s a comedy, isn’t it? How can you make a movie by telling half a story? It all started with a father and his new wife, Oracene, and their children. It’s like nothing ever happened before.”
For context, Richard Williams was married with five children before leaving the family and eventually getting married Oracle, Venus and Serena Williams‘ mom. About Richardstart, Sabrina Williams stated:
“My sister Reneeka was only eight weeks old when my father left. How do you give up a baby? I was eight years old then, and he left with the excuse ‘Shall I get you a bicycle?’ I can laugh about it now. I don’t think it should take up the whole movie, but – to give it more credibility – at least refer to it, since he left us when he was already a grown man. . ”
“Truth be told, those girls rose to the top while his other children suffered because of my dad’s choices, we grew up in poverty after he left… If not because of the churches we belong to, I don’t ‘don’t think my mom would make it. “
Sabrina Williams continue bashing Richard:
“I think the title is completely over the top. He thinks he’s the king of the world, but no one around him thinks he’s King Richard… He’s not the king of the world. If you look at him psychologically, that’s something he’s never achieved beyond what’s in his mind. He lived only through his two daughters, giving up all of his other children. I just watch it now because I didn’t realize how funny it would be. One of the things I’m going to have to do is not laugh out loud in the auditorium when I know the whole story. “
Then she aimed Will Smith for playing her father in the movie:
“They said Will Smith would probably get an Academy Award for this, I appreciated him, but, as a black American, he should want to tell the whole story. Will Smith is not stupid. They have to grow up better and not have to harvest for food, or worry about their next meal. It would be great if there was a behind-the-scenes story. [He should be] ashamed of yourself. ”
At moment later, Sabrina went on to say that she felt pity for her father and accused him of living vicariously through Venus and Serena:
“You can have an outside character, we all have something that we anticipate, but my dad patronized one all his life, living through girls. I think that’s sad, because there’s no way my dad wouldn’t think of me, or my other siblings. There is no way in your life that you can put that aside and not think about it. “
She then revealed:
“I didn’t think I would see him alive. I even had my father’s head beheaded because I knew I wouldn’t be able to attend his funeral… I could chase my dad for the rest of my life in my head, or I could make terms on which I believe that dad loves me in his own way. That’s all I can do.”
Treat her sisters, Sabrina Williams revealed that she had only met them once by chance at an amusement park. She went on to say:
“I wouldn’t swap places with Venus or Serena. Now I’m driving, listening to music and thinking, can I change anything about my life? No, I won’t, I’ll go through all the hardships I went through again. ”
