Jermaine Jackson : As boys, we huddled around the radio as Muhammad Ali floored Sonny Liston. In 1975, he walked into, and blessed, our lives… Like a playful uncle, he shadow-boxed, he levitated, he inspired, he taught us self-belief. He was the sweetest, friendliest of men…He was the greatest there ever was. As a boxer, as a man, as a friend to our family. So many unforgettable memories. You shook up the world, champ. Now go rest in peace. #RIPMuhammadAli
P Diddy : The love he showed me he didn’t have too. He always was excited to see me. He even came to see me on Broadway in A Raisin In The Sun. He sat thru a 3 hr play to see me. IT bugged me out. It humbled me. Thank you for the love. I MISS YOU. #RIPALI
