After Muhammad Ali’s death, stories about a rumored feud within his family have been hugging the headlines. Allegedly, his family is now feuding over the wealth he left.


In an interview with his ex-wife Khalilah, Radar Online found that the family is allegedly fighting over the $80 million wealth that the 74-year-old champion boxer left.

Khalilah reportedly disclosed that the champion boxer’s brother, Rahman, and his son, Muhammad Jr., were accusing his current and fourth wife, Lonnie, “of cutting them out of his will.”

The late boxer has a huge family, which may mean that more members might claim for whatever fortune that Muhammad Ali left after his death, apart from his son and five daughters.

Amid the allegations hurled against Lonnie, the report noted that she used to be his childhood friend who eventually became his wife in 1986, just two years after “The Greatest” was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Radar Online continued by citing the critics who have been speculating that Lonnie “had plotted her way into his life.” It was theorized that in achieving her supposed objective, she stayed in an apartment near Muhammad Ali’s place and offered to serve as his nurse despite the fact that he was still married to third wife then, ex-model Veronica, someone who was accused of not being the nursing type.

In the meantime, CNN reported that during his last hours, the three-time world heavy-weight boxing champ was “surrounded by his children.“

Since they knew that their father was already leaving them, they reportedly hugged each other as they chanted Islamic prayer while reassuring him that he can already go.

“You can go now. We will be okay. We love you,” Hannah Ali, his daughter, wrote on Twitter. “Thank you. You can go back to God now.”

The younger also revealed that even after Muhammad Ali’s death, his heartbeat stayed for another 30 minutes: “A true testament to the strength of his Spirit and Will!”
