A woman, Barbara Mensah who claims that she is the former girlfriend of boxing legend Muhammad Ali is in the news with all clear indications as ready to cash in on the boxing legend’s death.
The 70-year-old Barbara who claims she has a 35-year-old daughter Kiiursti Mensah from their 20-year-old affair is offering the sale of tapes that she alleges show the legend at sex parties.
She told the Mirror that the videos were taken after fights at “Gumbo parties”, explaining: “There would be Ali and a few of his guys and then about a dozen or more girls.
"All of them were stunning. Muhammad couldn’t keep away from a pretty girl whether he was married or not. The tape shows them having sex; they used to call them gumbo parties - it was a mix of everything.”
The determined woman who is said to be asking for a $100,000 ransom for the footage said: “I know the value of the footage. No one has anything like this. I’d like to get as much as I can for it.”
Barbara domiciled in the US is also attempting to get the film transferred onto a CD to make it easier to sell and also publish a book about her life with the legend.
She claims she has no less than eight publishers fighting for the rights to the book.
She attended Muhammad’s private memorial service on Thursday, the day before his public funeral, and stood just feet from Muhammad’s widow Lonnie, who she blames for cutting him out of her life.
