MIAMI, FL -- Venus and Serena Williams will become the latest celebrities to own a stake in the Miami Dolphins, a person familiar with the deal said.
The person spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity because the team plans to announce the involvement of the tennis-playing sisters next week.
The Williamses live in Palm Beach Gardens, about an hour's drive from the Dolphins' stadium.
Musicians Gloria and Emilio Estefan and Marc Anthony recently bought small shares of the team. New Dolphins owner Stephen Ross also forged a partnership with singer Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville enterprise.
