Serena Williams Bel-Air Home Price Drop ... Advantage Potential Buyer!!!

4/19/2018 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Serena Williams is making an adjustment -- to her real estate game -- by slashing the price of her Bel-Air home ... to just a shade under $10 million.

The tennis star put the 6,101 sq ft, 6-bed, 7-bath mansion -- featuring a pool, gym, bar, salon and private hiking trails -- on the market for $12 mil back in October ... but apparently hasn't had any takers.

With a new price tag of $9,995,000, Serena's still set to make a nice profit on the sale -- she bought the place for just over $6 mil in 2006.

As we reported ... Serena plunked down $6.7 mil on a Beverly Hills pad right around the same time she listed her Bel-Air palace with Greg Piechota from KASE Real Estate.

So ... don't worry about her not having a place to stay in L.A.

Tech-nerd no more!!!

Serena Williams' hubby, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, has traded in his keyboard for free weights and steel chains ... saying he's finally made the life decision to get fit.

But, don't be fooled by the broey gym pic -- he's doing it all for baby Alexis.

"Made a promise to Alexis Olympia Ohanian when I first met her that I was going to start focusing on my health as much as I focus on my business," Ohanian said on social media.

"My legacy is almost starting to talk, so she'll be cheering soon enough." 

You can tell he's already made serious gains -- but Mr. "Mediocre at Best" says he's still got a ton of work to do. 

No doubt having a workout buddy like Serena helps. Congrats!!

Venus Williams No Reply from AT&T ... Phone Records Stall Wrongful Death Lawsuit

3/27/2018 2:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Venus Williams' cell phone records from the fatal car accident remain under wraps, because AT&T won't give up the goods ... TMZ Sports has learned.

Attorneys for Jerome Barson's estate are trying to put the heat on Venus' cell phone carrier, because according to docs, they first subpoenaed AT&T back in January ... but have yet to get any action.

Barson died from his injuries after his sedan smashed into Venus' SUV last June in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Cops cleared Venus criminally, saying she was "caught in the middle" of the intersection, but the Barsons' attorney, Gary Iscoe, wants to make sure she wasn't on her phone and distracted at the time.

As we first reported, there's surveillance video of Venus approaching the intersection -- just seconds before the accident -- but it's unclear if she's on the phone. 

In docs, Iscoe says AT&T told him on March 15 the request "being processed." Not good enough for the Barsons, who want the judge to force AT&T to hand over Venus' records now.

Whether they were just volleying for fun, or actually taking it seriously ... Milan scored on Novak either way, at least a couple different times. Apparently, Novak approached Milan and asked her to hit with him ... which left the kid shocked and grateful on social media. 

Mike was also thankful to Novak, giving him props on Twitter saying ... "@DjokerNole you are the realest. Thanks for hitting with my daughter #milantyson. You are her tennis idol." 

Milan's proven herself as a budding tennis star ... this can only help her resume.

Serena Williams I 'Almost Died' After Giving Birth ... Emergency Surgery

2/20/2018 8:32 AM PST
Breaking News

Serena Williams says she "almost died" after giving birth to her daughter, Alexis Olympia -- if not for a team of super doctors who removed a large hematoma from her abdomen. 

The tennis star says her daughter was born by an emergency C-section on Sept. 1 after Olympia's heart rate plummeted during contractions. 

The surgery went smoothly, Serena said on CNN.com ... "But what followed just 24 hours after giving birth were six days of uncertainty."

Williams says she suffered a pulmonary embolism -- which is when a blood clot blocks one or more arteries in her lungs. 

Serena contacted medical professionals -- but the coughing from the embolism got so bad, her C-section wound popped open and she required another surgery. 

"The doctors found a large hematoma, a swelling of clotted blood, in my abdomen. And then I returned to the operating room for a procedure that prevents clots from traveling to my lungs."

Serena eventually made it home and was ordered to spend the next 6 weeks in bed. 

She credits the "incredible medical team of doctors and nurses at a hospital with state-of-the-art equipment" -- and urges people to support UNICEF, which provides medical services to mothers and babies around the world.

Serena Williams surprised a group of young black girls with a private screening of "Black Panther" on Thursday -- telling the crowd, "This is a huge moment for us and for black people."

Serena and her hubby, Alexis Ohanian, organized the event in San Fran with roughly 40 members of the youth group Black Girls CODE -- which provides technology education to African-American girls.

The twist, the girls had NO IDEA Serena was going to be in the theater to watch with them -- and when she walked in the room, the crowd went nuts!! It was awesome!! 

"We've never had a superhero movie," Serena told the group ... "So, we're so excited. I feel like I've waited my whole life for this."

By the way, Serena says the whole thing was Alexis' idea ... but jokingly added, "It was my idea, too."

Props to everyone -- this is great.

Genie Bouchard 2nd Super Bowl Date w/ Bet Guy ... This Is Foreal, Right?!

Breaking News

Alright, guys ... this might actually be a thing.

Tennis superstar Genie Bouchard and the guy who won a date with her by betting on last year's Super Bowl are going back to the big game ... after NFL Canada (Genie's home country) offered to take them as guests.

The best part -- SHE ASKED HIM!!

"OMG. Back to where it all began?! And with the Patriots too?! I’m in! What do you say?" Genie tweeted at Missouri University student, John Goehrke.

Of course, John accepted -- "This keeps getting better. I’m in!"

You know the story -- Genie made a bet with John last year when the Falcons were up big on the Patriots ... agreeing to a date if the Pats pulled off a comeback.

They did ... and they've since gone on (at least) a few dates -- including a bikini beach sesh in Miami.

Can't say for sure ... but it definitely seems like things are heating up.

Enrique & Anna Meet Our Twins!!! Answer Key Not Included

1/16/2018 10:07 AM PST

Enrique Iglesias is giving the world a first glance at one of the twins he and Anna Kournikova kept totally undercover during her pregnancy.

There's still some secrecy -- Enrique captioned the pic, "My Sunshine" ... so, it's unclear if the kid in the pic is Nicholas or Lucy. TMZ broke the story ... Anna and Enrique became first-time parents when she gave birth back in December. 

Judging by the baby's clothing ... we're gonna guess this is Nicholas. Hell, we've got a 50-50 shot!

10:55 AM PT -- Ok, now we're more confused. Anna just posted her own shot with one of the twins, and also captioned it, "My Sunshine."

Now, we're guessing Anna's holding the boy, Nicholas -- while Enrique's got the girl, Lucy. We're sure of it! Or, at least 50-50. 

Tennis Star Victoria Azarenka Scores Huge Win In Nasty Custody War

1/15/2018 4:41 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tennis superstar Victoria Azarenka is one step closer to resuming her pro career -- after getting a huge win in her custody case that should clear the path for her to travel with her baby again. 

As we previously reported, Azarenka -- who's a citizen of Belarus -- went to war with her baby daddy Billy McKeague in 2017 after he filed paternity papers in L.A., where Azarenka trains.

The filing resulted in the judge forbidding either parent to take the child out of California until an agreement was reached. 

The problem ... Azarenka (the former #1 ranked player) competes all over the world -- but she refused to leave her 1-year-old child behind. As a result, she pulled out of the US Open, the Australian Open and the ASB Classic in Auckland. 

Azarenka argued the case belongs in Belarus -- where she was previously awarded primary custody by a Belarusian court. 

Now, TMZ Sports has learned the California judge has ruled in Azarenka's favor -- agreeing the case doesn't belong in CA or anywhere in the U.S. 

But she's not out of the woods yet ... McKeague has 3 weeks to appeal the ruling. We're told Azarenka's camp is confident they will win that battle as well, based on the judge's strongly-worded 65-page opinion. 

We're told Azarenka's plan is to move back to Belarus with their son as soon as she can -- but she wants McKeague to be in the kid's life and hopes to have an amicable co-parenting relationship with him moving forward.
