VENUS WILLIAMS is the subject of the new biographical drama, King Richard.
Here’s what we know about the all-star tennis champion’s love life.
Is Venus Williams married?
Venus Williams is not married, and never has been.
For the 41-year-old athlete, marriage isn’t a priority – herself, however, is.
According to her October 2021 cover story for Cosmopolitan magazine, Venus enjoys her freedom and doesn’t feel the need to subject herself to societal pressures when it comes to marriage.
“I have a lot of friends who don’t believe me when I say that I like my life and I don’t want to change it for any reason. I’m not desperate and they don’t believe me,” she said during the interview.
“They say things like, ‘You’re going to miss your window.’ I’m like, ‘Please, relax. You might feel this way, but I don’t. I promise you I don’t.’”
Journalist and podcast host, Jemele Hill, also weighed in on Venus’ singledom.
“She’s chosen to live her life so unapologetically and I think there’s a beauty in that,” she said.
“She just seems like somebody who’s just not pressed. I love that about her.”
Who has Venus Williams dated?
During an Instagram live video, Venus once referred to herself as “undateable.”
“Lots of people asking me to go on a date I’m just not, I would say, I’m undateable. That’s okay, I’m happy.”
She was most recently linked to fellow tennis player Reilly Opelka, but neither of them ever confirmed a relationship.
In 2019, Venus ended her high-profile relationship with fellow multi-millionaire, Nicholas Hammond. The two attended Serena Williams’ wedding together, and he often appeared courtside to cheer Venus on.
Cuban model Elio Pis was reportedly her previous boyfriend, with the pair meeting in 2012 when he modelled for her EleVen fashion line.
Venus was in a serious relationship with golfer Hank Kuehne, who was spotted at her matches between 2007 and 2010.
But the pair then broke up before Kuehne met his second wife Andy, who he married in 2011.
