Another Celebrity Estate Fight Brewing?

Published January 23, 2017 by Brady Cobin Law Group, PLLC

Boxer Muhammad Ali’s family may be the next ones in the estate fight ring.

Muhammad Ali, who passed away last year after a long struggle with Parkinson’s disease, has been frequently dubbed “the greatest fighter of all time.”

While Ali can no longer fight, his family still can and it appears they are going to, according to the Daily Mail in “Revealed: Muhammad Ali’s widow will receive DOUBLE the $6M inheritance awarded to each of his nine children sparking ‘World War Three’ between warring relatives.”

The heart of the dispute appears to be longstanding animosity between Ali’s children and his widow.

The children are upset, even though all nine of them will receive $6 million from their father’s estate. They are not happy that the widow will receive twice the amount they will get.

Although the children have often feuded with each other, they have apparently agreed to set those disputes aside for now, until they have their say about their father’s widow.

It is not clear exactly what the children plan to do and if they have any grounds to dispute the amount their stepmother was left in Muhammad Ali’s will. Sadly, this celebrity family joins a long list of celebrity legacies marred by in-fighting among heirs over the spoils of their estates.

Reference: Daily Mail (January 3, 2017) “Revealed: Muhammad Ali’s widow will receive DOUBLE the $6M inheritance awarded to each of his nine children sparking ‘World War Three’ between warring relatives.”
