Serena Williams

Tennis superstar Serena Williams told a tall tale about leaping over chairs and weaving in and out of a crowd to chase down a cell phone thief. But surveillance video from inside the restaurant tells a different story.

In Serena's version, a thief stealthily stole her cell phone while she was deep in conversation with a male friend. Actually, the video shows her friend sliding her phone to the thief who picks it up off the table.

When Serena noticed her phone was gone, she didn't leap over any chairs, nor did she break a sweat running after the thief.

In her version of the story, she said “He began to run but I was too fast. (Those sprints came in handy) I was upon him in a flash!”

Actually, the video shows Serena slowly jogging after the phone thief who wasn't running at all.

Serena said she interrogated the guy and convinced him to hand over her phone. Actually, it looks like she begged the guy and even offered him an autograph in exchange for her phone.

Like a typical narcissist, Serena took the opportunity to brag about her athletic prowess.

“Superhero? Maybe? Or HELL YEA!! I’ve got the speed the jumps, the power, the body, the seduction, the sex appeal, the strength, the leadership and yet the calm to weather the storm.”

Do better, Serena.

  • SunnyChi

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    She still took action. My phone was stolen and I felt violated smh.

  • SandraRose

    Celebrities should realize every smiling face is not a friend. Serena needs more people who look like her.

  • SummerBaby

    She's rich & don't want a lawsuit

  • Nik

    You got that right. When people know you have something, you will be set up.

  • imright

  • SummerBaby

    I'm just a regular person & don't want my phone in the wrong hands. ??

  • I want to be free

    You're right Sandra. She has waayyy to many friends who are the opposite color. I guess the pitfalls of being a celebrity in a profession dominated by whites.

  • Sheyonce

    She didn't leap over chairs, but she did chase the guy down. I'm not bothered by her exaggeration. I'm more bothered by yours. How sad.


    LOL - this is my ringtone for my day-ones!

  • Canary Red™

    Something fishy fish fish (Chris tucker voice) about this story.
    Your friend is DEAD wrong n why did he not go out with her.

  • Smith Jane

    That Zola Twitter rant was so ridiculous. I don't understand why folks are so hyped over that garbage

  • Empress

    Agreed! A big mistake our people make. And some of those same people start doing interviews and spilling tea all over the place on them when the money is right. Smiling in her face and hating her behind her back. I know Rih gets a lot of shade but she does maintain her relationships with close friends she had in Barbados it makes a difference.

  • Phatbootycutie

    Thank you lol why so much hate towards Serena

  • eljjai

    delete every msg once i read it. keep names coded in a separate phone book.

  • SaltineCrackers

    Hole up! Her "friend" slid HER phone to his Grandfather and she's telling people to trust their instinct? I hope we hear about him being left left the side of the....never mind.

  • Anna Maria

    I was wondering the same thing but then I remembered it was Sandra and she can't stand to tell the truth when she thinks a lie will suffice. She is jealous of most people except she loves Monica, TI and his midget and a handful of others.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I do that now ? .... And I am not a celebrity! I have nosy neighbors!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    As long as she doesn't bleach her skin....?

  • mozart

    actually, serena's phone wasn't in the dude's hand. you can see it resting in the seat next to her. you have the wrong phone sandra..

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    The usage of "ran" can be interpreted differently ?

    I ran a mile
    I ran out of that restaurant
    One can mean not really Running IMB

  • Jessica

    Dang that's embarrassing.

  • Phatbootycutie

    Lmmfpao you are soooo right about that I thought I was the only person who noticed that really lol what a mess

  • ArDnAhC45

    I agree. *sips tea*

  • Zizzle

    There is no lying in Serena Williams.

  • Guest who

    Not really black people women in particular most not all are jealous and would not celebrate her success sincerely. I have so many frenemies in my mist I'm thinking about getting a non black entourage! So why should she surround herself with people like that just saying

  • BTweekin

    He Didn't Slide The Phone To Him. The Phone Was On The Chair Next To Her.
