Tennis legend, Venus Williams has taken to Facebook to respond for the first time to the accusation that a car crash she was involved in on June 9 resulted in the death of Jerome Barson.
She wrote, “I am devastated and heartbroken by this accident. My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Jerome Barson and I continue to keep them in my thoughts and prayers.”
The family of Jerome Barson filed a wrongful death lawsuit the day after the news became public of the fatal crash.
The court document demanded a trial by jury and judgment for damages against Williams with interest and costs.
