Love Match Ends! Venus Williams And Boytoy Beau Nicky Hammond Have Split
Venus Williams and her wealthy boyfriend Nicky Hammond have reportedly called it quits.
Page Six broke the news that the tennis player, 39, and her boyfriend, who is 12 years younger than Venus at 27, have ended their relationship, but remain friendly.
"They dated for two years and have broken up," a source told Page Six. "It's not because they don't love each other, they do. They are still friends."
According to one Page Six source, Venus and Nicky weren't on the same page regarding marriage and children. Another source said the relationship simply "ran its course."
Nicky, the descendant of the megarich Annenberg family fortune via his mother Dana Hammond, gave Venus a "friendship ring" last summer, but otherwise was silent about their romance.
"We have a firm commitment to one another to keep our relationship private," Nicky said while they were together.
The millionaire financier was often seen cheering Venus on at tennis tournaments and accompanied her to her sister Serena Williams' wedding to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in November 2017.
As readers know, Venus' younger sister Serena, 37, and Alexis, 34, got engaged in December 2016. They welcomed their child, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in September 2017 after experiencing complications that nearly resulted in Serena's death , and exchanged vows two months later in New Orleans.
