Venus Williams Gets In the Hot Seat For Fatal Car Crash Deposition

11/9/2017 7:14 AM PST
Breaking News

The day of questioning has arrived for Venus Williams ... the tennis star is about to sit for her deposition in the lawsuit stemming from that fatal car crash back in June. 

As we previously reported, the family of Jerome Barson sued Venus -- claiming she's to blame for blocking an intersection and causing Jerome's car to T-bone her in a crash that killed Jerome. 

So, what happens today? Barson's lawyers will undoubtedly grill Venus about her driving decisions on that fateful day and try to paint her as negligent.

Venus will most likely fight back and continue to lay the blame on a third unidentified driver who she has claimed cut in front of her -- forcing her car to linger in the intersection.

Depositions usually only take one day. Then the case could move to trial ... depending on how today goes.

Scottie Pippen LOVES Novak Djokovic -- and wasn't afraid to show it yesterday at lunch.

We got Pippen leaving il Pastaio in the Beverly Hills ... that is, until the NBA legend spotted Novak at an outside table.

Scottie made a hard cut over to the tennis superstar -- giving him daps, busting out his cellphone for a pic and just generally fanboying out.

Pip didn't wanna talk about him and Larsa getting back together ... but his bromance with Djoker's on lock.

Bonus: Scottie just shared his shot with the "tennis GOAT" -- and it's dope.

Novak Djokovic Thanks for the Help, Coach Agassi Is That for My Kid??

11/3/2017 5:26 PM PDT

Tennis star Novak Djokovic and his coach Andre Agassi -- a legend himself -- had a lunch meeting Friday ... and it looks like Agassi brought a gift for the new dad of 2.

Novak and Andre were spotted together Friday in Beverly Hills in casual digs with their hands full. What's interesting though is what Agassi's carrying -- a Square Panda Phonics and reading game for kids.

Djokovic and his wife, Jelena, just had their second child -- a baby girl -- in September ... so it's gotta be for her right?

As for the coaching ... the Djoker hired Agassi in May to help him repair his form and worked with him for 2 months before an elbow injury knocked him out of Wimbledon. He's reportedly planning for a comeback in January at the Australian Open.

The 2 tennis greats together begs the question -- if you run into them on the street and only have time for one autograph ... who do you ask?

Serena Williams Drops $6.7 Mil on New Bev Hills Pad

10/27/2017 11:10 AM PDT

Now we know why Serena Williams is selling her $12 million Bel Air pad -- she's downsizing ... LIKE A BOSS!!!

The tennis superstar just plunked down $6.7 million on a 6,000 square foot pad in a private gated Bev Hills community, according to Trulia.com.

The place looks AWESOME -- with 5 bedrooms, 7 baths, incredible view, dope backyard with a pool -- but still no tennis court. 

As we previously reported, Williams is selling a nearby home she owns for $12 mil. She bought that place a few years back for $6 mil. 

So, she flips that house -- pockets $6 mil -- and buys a new dope house for half the price? 

Boss. Boss. Boss. Boss. Boss. Boss. Boss. 

Serena Williams Serves Up $12 Mil Bel Air Pad

10/24/2017 12:20 PM PDT

Serena Williams is looking to double up on the massive Bel-Air mansion she bought for $6 mil in 2006 -- 'cause it's now on the market with a $12 mil price tag.  

Unclear why Serena is unloading the property -- it's really cool, located in a really nice area and it's HUGE. 

The home is 6,101 square-feet and looks like a palace -- with 6 beds, 7 baths -- and has a grassy area than spans roughly 2.7 acres and includes private hiking trails ('cause who's got time for L.A. traffic?).

The big surprise -- no tennis court! 

So, where is Serena going? She's got multiple properties in Florida and her fiance Alexis Ohanian has a spot in NorCal ... so she's got options.

Billie Jean King Praises Weinstein Accusers ... 'That's Progess'

10/22/2017 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Billie Jean King says society is making progress in the battle against sexism, and she's pointing to the Harvey Weinstein scandal -- and the women speaking out -- as her proof.

King is a trailblazer in every sense of the word, spending her entire career not just winning on the court, but winning in society as an advocate for women's rights (she founded the WTA tour, btw).

When we got her out at LAX and asked if she's been able to see any progress since the days she began her crusade in the early '70s, King said yes, but reminded us the war isn't over.

"Sure, but every generation has to continue to start over and fight for equality and inclusion."

Our guy brought up the scores of women who have made sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein -- and BJK says the scandal just proves things are moving forward.

"That is progressing, when people speak up."

BTW -- We also got some pretty good stuff from King about working with Emma Stone for her new movie "Battle of the Sexes" ... and if Stone has any real talent on the court. 

Venus Williams to Lawyers I'm Ready to Talk About Fatal Car Crash Case

Exclusive Details

Venus Williams is finally making herself available to talk to opposing lawyers about the fatal car crash ... and the wrongful death lawsuit.

According to a court doc obtained by TMZ Sports ... Venus will sit for a deposition on November 9 in West Palm Beach. As we first reported ... attorneys for the estate of Jerome Barson said the tennis superstar had refused to respond to their repeated requests since July.

Barson's attorney, Michael Steinger, tells us, "After months of avoiding our repeated requests for deposition and after requesting the court order the same, we are pleased that Ms. Williams realized the importance of her testimony in this very serious case."

Barson is the 78-year-old man who died from his injuries after the June collision. Venus blames a third unidentified driver for the accident.
