Legendary boxer, Muhammad Ali‘s will has been finalised and each of his nine children – seven daughters and two sons – will get about $6 million each, and his wife Lonnie is said to get double of that amount.
According to an insider, “Once the money is there, expect the biggest war yet.”
An attorney for the Muhammad Ali Trust, which governs the distribution of his $80 million estate, said: “It was crafted to reflect his specific wishes and to protect his legacy.”
Since Ali’s death in June 2016, the family had been at loggerheads with each other over the will.
Ali’s only sibling, Rahman, will get no money after years of having disputes with Lonnie.
“They all play nice-nicey now, but simmering tension goes back decades. None of the kids trust Lonnie, all are from different mothers and hate each other.
Lonnie is said to get double what the kids have which has left many seething. They didn’t like her before their dad passed away accusing her of preventing them from seeing him.
When he died some sucked up to Lonnie just to get as much as they can, but the truth is that they all did it – then accused the other siblings of doing it.
Once money is in the bank it looks like they will cut all ties with each other but not before their true feelings are aired. But it’s not just the inheritance. There is a lot of bitterness between the family’s strict Muslims and non-believers for the way the funeral was conducted.
They were disgusted he wasn’t buried within 48 hours as the Koran states, and that Will Smith and Mike Tyson were pallbearers. Some of the children are appalled it was more about a celebrity list than his own flesh and blood.
World War Three is threatened and true feelings are expected to come flooding, and a few truths be told,” the insider stated.
