According to Mirror, Muhammad Jr. only received three “measly payments” of $2,500 and was sleeping on a friend’s floor in Florida.
“It looks like I’ve just been cut off completely. I don’t have a bank account, so they’ve had to wire money to me,” Muhammad Jr. told the outlet. “I’m going to live off water now, as that’s all I can afford.” He added that “getting food is hard, as I don’t have a cent to my name. I just find a way somehow to get food each day. I’ve got nowhere I call home anymore.”
