Yetunde Price, Serena and Venus Williams’ older sister, died in a car accident.


‘King Richard,’ which was released last week, is still generating buzz, and the Williams sisters, Serena and Venus, have been in the news. The film was also a way for the iconic duo to pay tribute to their older sister. Yetunde Price (also known as Tunde) was assassinated in 2003. Mikayla LaShae Bartholomew, who plays the character in the film, gets a fair amount of screen time. Serena reminisced about spending time with her sister on Wednesday’s episode of Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk with host Will Smith. “I think I cried the entire time..”

Serena recalled, “Whenever she came on film, I just — personally, I just started, like — I mean, even now.” “It was a quiet moment, I think,” their mother, Oracene Price (played by Aunjanue Ellis), added. Because we all know how it was, and how it — you know, it was just something you tried to push to the back of your mind and didn’t want to remember. ”
