Word has it that Venus Williams’ boyfriend, Nicky Hammond, has finally put a ring on it – but not an engagement ring.

It’s a “friendship ring,” a source tells Page Six, who added that it’s not to be confused with the diamond ring Venus has rocked for years that has led to past speculation of wedding bells.

Hammond declined to comment on the gossip, telling Page Six, “We have a firm commitment to one another to keep our relationship private.”

The tennis star, 38, and Hammond, 26, an heir of TV Guide billionaire Walter Annenberg, have been dating for more than a year. Her 6-foot-4 boo was spotted in the Williams family box last year at the US Open and was Venus’ escort to sister Serena’s wedding in November to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

Hammond was also in the stands to watch Venus at the Australian Open in January and took her on a trip to Queensland, Australia’s Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef.

“They are in love,” another insider told Page Six. “But no one has mentioned any engagement.”

Meanwhile, both Venus and Serena begin their run in the 2018 US Open in New York today (Aug. 27). If all goes well, the siblings could face each other in the third round.

    I don’t watch them play tennis anymore. Plenty of brown skin men were interested in them and I believe they each could have found one the would have treated them with respect and loved them. Theses peckerwood men don’t love them they are just putting up with them and enjoying their hard earned money for the rest of their lazy life’s. Maybe their dad scared them away from their race. :0 lol

  2. White America called them ugly monkeys while black men called them thick sexy dark skinned beauty women. Once the white men realized black men love them and all of a sudden they love them also. Since they both prefer white men, the black men will no longer find them sexy. Then watch how the white man will no longer be interested. White man only want what we want. Don’t believe me, then mark my words and watch what happens to there status!!
