Speak privately with The Sun at her home in Las VegasShe said: “I feel [sad] that he was portrayed in the movie King Richard as a great father and everything.
“For me, they [Serena and Venus] a good child for him. It’s like a chess game.
News comes as:
“It’s anybody that he can do what he needs to, to make money for himself and get rich and famous, you know, because he’s like a king in my mind. me, and he’s very important.”
Richard, 80 years old, married Sabrina’s late mother Betty Johnson was in Los Angeles in the early sixties and they had four other children – Richard III, Ronner, Reluss and Reneeka.
He abandoned his wife and 5 childrenallegedly walked out the door to buy Sabrina a bike – and never came back – then went on to marry Serena and Venus’ mother Oracene.
The Sun attempted to reach Richard Williams for comment.
Sabrina said: “I didn’t go to the movies. I was told I wasn’t mentioned in the movie. There were some references to King Richard alluding to the family. But the real story wasn’t told.
“In the Gucci movie, they do tell a back story, and then they tell the whole story, right? Think of Muhammad Ali. Do they tell the back story? And they tell the front story Even Martin Luther King.”
Sabrina says she met her half-sibling only once, coincidentally, at Knott’s Berry Farm, an amusement park in California, when the couple were teenagers.
She approached her famous father and he said he wanted to stay in touch, but the number he gave her later didn’t work and she felt left out again.
Despite achieving her wildest dreams of fame and fortune after being coached by her father, Sabrina says that she is not jealous of her half-sisters Serena and Venus.

“You know why? Because [this is] who I am today. I’ve heard people say he [Richard] has been promoted. He is very demanding.
“I can’t imagine, like I’ve never seen that part of my dad because I’ve only had him for basically eight years. But my brother Richard and my brother Ronner they told me, you know, he’s always like, let’s get this done, get this done.”

“He was like, ‘Sabrina’ and he hugged me and he kissed me. He left in the car, and that was all. Ever since that moment when my mom told us my dad wasn’t coming back. Again, I’ve started that kind of drumming part of life.
“In my eyes, we’ve gone from being a well-to-do family, we’re basically in ruins and my mom is trying to keep us alive and do whatever she can for us. As for me Mom really worked hard My mom is our mom and dad.

“She doesn’t talk about it anymore. The look on her face, to me it’s just sadness and she’s trying to be brave, I don’t ask. I don’t remember any of my siblings asking. questions.
