A FORMER girlfriend of Muhammad Ali has made a sick bid to cash in on his death by Âoffering for sale tapes she claims show him at sex parties.
Barbara Mensah, who alleges her daughter Kiiursti is the lovechild of the three-times world heavyweight champion, wants a six-figure sum for the footage.
Just two days after The Greatest was buried at a funeral attended by world leaders and celebrities, grasping Barbara told the Sunday People : â€œI know the value of the footage.
â€œNo one has anything like this. Iâ€™d like to get as much as I can for it.â€
The scheming mum said she is looking for more than $100,000 Â â€“ about Â£70,000.
Barbara, 70, has already made inquiries to get the old cine film Âtransferred on to CD to make her sordid deal easier to clinch.
She claimed the footage was shot at â€œgumbo partiesâ€ arranged after his fights.
She said: â€œThere would be Ali and a few of his guys and then about a dozen or more girls.
â€œAll of them were stunning. Muhammad couldnâ€™t keep away from a pretty girl whether he was married or not.
â€œThe tapes show them having sex.
â€œThey used to call them gumbo parties â€“ it was a mix of everything.â€
Gumbo is a Âtraditional Louisiana stew.
Barbara claims the tapes were Â entrusted to her by one of Aliâ€™s closest confidants.
Speaking about her relationship with the legendary boxer, she said: â€œAli always Âreferred to me as his wife with great respect and not as a hidden affair.â€
Barbara also claims to have written a â€œblockbusterâ€ book about her life with Ali which eight publishers are Âcompeting for.
Kiiursti, 35, who looks remarkably like the Âex-world heavyweight champ, is said to be the result of a 20-year affair Barbara had with Ali in his heyday.
She claims a 1988 paternity test proves Kiiursti is his child, although Ali is not named on her birth certificate.
Barbara was in Louisville, Kentucky, for a Muslim prayer Âservice for Ali on Thursday the day before his funeral attended by over 100,000 mourners.
She stood just yards from Aliâ€™s family, at one point coming within a few feet of Aliâ€™s widow Lonnie, 59, who she blames for cutting her out of his life.
Showing pictures of Aliâ€™s Âcoffin on Facebook, Barbara wrote: â€œIt really, really hurts and only time will ease the pain R.I.P until we meet again.
â€œIâ€™m so glad I came to say goodbye to my love you were always there for me I never would have miss your home going for the world.â€
And taking a swipe at the boxerâ€™s widow, she added: : â€œYes she tried to keep me from you in life and in death but here I am at the private funeral. R.I.P. my love.â€ – Daily Mirror
