Boxing legend Muhammad Ali is suing the former owners of his Kentucky home after he was forced to make innumerable repairs to the property since moving in five years ago. Ali and his wife Yolanda purchased the estate in Louisville in 2006, but have struggled to maintain the mansion due to a series of defects.
According to Tmz.com, Muhammad has filed a lawsuit against the former owners after discovering leaks, mold and defective decking. The suit, which seeks unspecified damages, alleges the married couple who owned the home previously were aware of the problems but chose not to disclose them to potential buyers. The former boxing champion also complains that the house suffers from a leaky roof and chimney. Ali and his wife Yolanda married in November 1986 after being friends for over twenty years. They have one son together, Asaad Amin, who they adopted when he was five years old. Since retiring from boxing, Ali has devoted much of his time to philanthropy and regularly speaks of his personal struggle with Parkinson's Disease.
The three-time heavyweight champion and his wife bought the house in eastern Jefferson County for $1.9 million in 2007.
