Muhammad Ali not near death: daughter

NEW ORLEANS: Muhammad Ali’s daughter knocked down rumors of her father being near death Sunday, saying he was at home watching the Super Bowl.
May May Ali says she talked to her father Sunday morning on the phone and he was fine. She says he was watching the Super Bowl at home in Arizona, wearing a Baltimore Ravens jersey.
“He’s fine, in fact he was talking well this morning,” she said in a telephone interview. “These rumors pop up every once in a while but there’s nothing to them.”
The rumors were started by a report in a British tabloid quoting Ali’s brother, Rahman, as saying the former heavyweight champion was near death. Rahman, though, said he hadn’t seen his brother since last summer and had no contact with the family.
The report was widely repeated on the Internet, drawing expressions of condolences on Twitter and Facebook.
Ali suffers from Parkinson’s disease. He celebrated his 71st birthday last month.

Police: Stalker broke into Taylor Swift’s NYC home, took nap

NEW YORK: Police say a stalker broke into Taylor Swift’s New York City townhouse and took a nap.
Police say officers investigating a reported break-in Friday found 22-year-old Roger Alvarado asleep in the pop star’s home in the Tribeca neighborhood.
Alvarado, of Homestead, Florida, was arrested on charges of stalking, burglary, criminal mischief and trespassing.
It’s not clear whether he has an attorney who can speak for him.
Alvarado was arrested at the same address on Feb. 13 on charges of breaking the front door with a shovel.
Swift was not home during Friday’s break-in.
The multiplatinum-selling recording artist has dealt with stalkers on both coasts.
Police said a Colorado man arrested April 14 outside a Beverly Hills home owned by Swift had a knife, a rope and ammunition.
