New reports are claiming that after Muhammad Ali Jr. received his portion of his late father’s inheritance, he skipped town.
The son of the boxing legend, who passed away on June 3 at the age of 74, is rumored to have moved out of his family home in Chicago, leaving behind his wife and their two children after collecting his share of the $80 million fortune.
As reported, Ali Jr. is said to have relocated to a more affluent part of Chicago but it is still unclear as to why he didn’t take his family with him.
For the past decade, Ali Jr. and his wife Shaakira, and their two children, Ameera, age 8, and Shakera, age 7, had relied on food stamps and were barely scrapping by.
While he had been estranged from his famous father for years, it appears he has now decided to act in a similar fashion, allegedly detaching from his wife and kids now that he has come into some money.
“He gave his wife $75 to buy herself something nice, and bought the kids new shoes,” a source claimed. “He also wants to set up a trust fund for his kids.”
The source also added that Ali Jr. is a “simple dude” who “doesn’t need much.”
