Venus Williams

Hey Mom, Here's a House

Venus is cutting ties with Jupiter -- TMZ has learned tennis star Venus Williams is giving away her fancy Jupiter, Florida home FOR FREE ... to her mother.

According to official records, Venus deeded her mother, Oracene the 2,804 sq. ft. house in September. The only money exchanged -- $10. Clearly, the house is a gift, and the nominal fee just keeps it legal.

Venus originally purchased the 4-bedroom, 3-bath home for $310,000 back in 2000 ... which has to be the greatest year of her career: she won the U.S. Open, Wimbledon, and an Olympic gold medal.

Total prize money for Wimbledon and the Open that year was more than $1.5 million ... so the house purchase would have been a breeze for Venus.

Your move, Serena.

I lived in a town just north of Jupiter for about two years. It's beautiful there but it's blazing hot and humid in the summer and the bugs never ever go away along with snakes and the occasional gator. I moved back northeast because I like cold weather and snow too instead of hot weather all the time. Nice little house.

She should rearrange a few of the letters in her name and start calling herself Orca. It would be more appropriate.

10 dollars doesn't make the transaction legal. It's an attempt at consideration, but it's a sham consideration.
