Why did Muhammad Ali and Myra Jo Arvin break up?
They actually did not technically break up. With Myra Jo working in the entertainment business industry and moving frequently. Muhammad could not keep up with her. Eventually they found each other in Los Angeles, California some years later where each had relocated and found themselves living very nearby each other and they reunited as friends. Just friends. Muhammad had asked her to bear him sons some years back and to his astonishment Myra Jo gave birth to a son fathered by writer Winston Alvin Fraser. When Myra Jo brought her son to meet Muhammad she found Muhammad in the early stages of his illness. The first thing he said to her was "Is that my son." Myra Jo complied no but reminded him that he predicted that she would have boys when he asked her to bear his. She later had a second son. Over the years they met as mere friends. Once again they met in Baltimore, Maryland Myra Jo's hometown and Muhammad got to meet her second son.
