Angelina Jolie Angers Muhammad Ali’s Family

ANGELINA Jolie has riled Muhammad Ali‘s family!

According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, the boxing legend’s family are furious about plans to bring Ali to London for a charity event this summer.

Muhammad, 70, was slated to attend a gala benefit in his honor at the Victoria and Albert Museum sponsored by the charity Sports for Peace.

Angelina is a patron of the group and, along with fiance Brad Pitt, is expected to attend the July 25 dinner. The gala will raise money for the educational Muhammad Ali Center and for research into Parkinson’s disease.

“Ali’s family is thrilled that he is being so deservedly hon­ored,” said a source close to Ali, who suffers from Par­kinson’s.

“But they’re convinced he is too frail to travel, especially after his humiliating appearance at a major league baseball game in Miami earlier this year.

“They think Angelina should have been more mindful of his weak condition before pushing for him to do this. The trip could kill him!”

In early April, Ali appeared visibly fragile during an awkward appearance during baseball’s Opening Night at the Miami Marlins’ new park.

The boxing great was wheeled out to the pitcher’s mound in a motorized cart, his arms shaking uncontrollably as Marlins team owner Jeffrey Loria clutched his hand and held his shoulder.

“It was a pathetic spectacle,” said a source. “Ali never should have been put in that position. It was embarrassing for him and clearly upset the fans. He appeared more pitiful than anything else.

“But people don’t seem to care that he pays a price when he has to expend that kind of effort.

“If Angelina had seen him in Miami, she never would have asked Ali to make the trip to London. She would have seen that he’s not up to the task.”

    Amazing how everything seems to be Angelina’s fault.  She and Brad are simply hosting this event which is sponsored by the Sports for Peace Foundation.  He was slated to attend which is different than being forced to attend.  I really don’t believe this story because it makes no sense – if he can’t go, then he won’t go.

    Angelina has nothing to do with the event.  She and Brad are NOT hosting it. They haven’t even confirm to be there. The organizers are just hopping they will because there was an auction at  Cinema for Peace Gala in Berlin and Brad won bid for 2 tickets to the event.

    No, No, I can’t even imagine her and Brad are the central figures in Ali’s travel time.I’m sure they are mindeful of his disease, and are just supportive figures in this event.They may be two of the event planners, but no ill will intent on worsening his condition.I’m sure that thought never even entered their mind, c’mon….BTW: Greatest boxer I ever saw!….

    Jolie has no clue how to be around people, she has no friends and nobody even in a shallow Hollywood land would be her friend, does this not even strike a thought in her head in between flirting and planning her next PR?

    Come on, it’s surely not Angelina’s fault… if he is not able to go he’s not forced to … But Inviting him is necessary because the fund raising is for his center, but after all he is not obliged to go … Angelina is a goodwill ambassador and she will never do anything bad intentionally
