Venus Williams Comes Out; Discloses Lesbian Relationship
PALM BEACH, Florida– One of the best female tennis players made an announcement today that many people did not see coming. Professional tennis player Venus Williams, told sources today that she has been living happily with her girlfriend for several years now, but keeping it a secret for many reasons.
One of the those reasons happened to be that she was dating her Cuban boyfriend Elio Pis, and didn’t want to break the news to him until now. It is rumored that Williams kept Pis around to make it seem that she was straight, but Williams told us that she did care a lot for him, just not in a sexual manor.
“I love Elio as a friend, but nothing more after that” said Williams
“I wasn’t ready for my fans to find out about this, and to be honest I haven’t always felt this way. After years and years of playing tennis against females, and hearing them moan as the slam a ball at you, your feelings begin to change.”
Williams has not released who she is dating at the moment, but has admitted that it is a fellow tennis player. She did not comment if the player was a professional, amateur, or even just a person that does it as a hobby.
Only time will tell how this will effect Williams career, either in a positive or negative way. Some of her sponsors are old school, and even Venus admitted to us, she fears that they will cut ties with her after this hits the mainstream.
“I love to play tennis but some endorsements do pay my bills, and I’m afraid that I’ll be losing a lot of my sponsors. I’m wiling to take on any new sponsorships that may come my way.” said Williams
