Veronica Porché Ali (born Veronica Porche;[1] December 16, 1955) is an American psychologist and the former wife of boxer Muhammad Ali.

Porché was born in Los Angeles, California on December 16, 1955, to Ethel and Horace Porche, both of Louisiana Creole descent. She attended Holy Rosary Catholic boarding school in Lafayette, Louisiana for 2 years before returning to Echo Park, Los Angeles, California. She graduated from Belmont High School in Los Angeles in 1973 and attended the University of Southern California.[citation needed]

She was the third wife of American boxer Muhammad Ali, and is the mother of his two daughters, actress and undefeated professional boxer Laila Ali[2] and author Hana Yasmeen Ali. They were married at the Presidential Compound in N'Sele according to the Islamic tradition.[citation needed]

Ali and Porche began a relationship in 1974 while in Kinshasa, Zaire when Porche was 18 years old. Porché was one of the four poster girls who had promoted the Rumble in the Jungle fight in Zaire versus George Foreman. Porché and Ali were then married in Los Angeles in the summer of 1977. They divorced in December 1986.[citation needed]

She studied acting at the Beverly Hills Playhouse to overcome shyness and had limited experience as an actress. She played a tour guide, Ranger Emily, in the 1986 film Terror on Alcatraz and made a cameo appearance in "Freedom Road" starring Ali and Kris Kristofferson. She co-hosted a segment of "Good Morning, New York" and appeared as herself in a made-for-TV documentary, Intimate Portrait: Laila Ali (2001) (TV). In the film Ali, she was played by Michael Michele.[3] Both Porche and Ali stated at the time that their relationship and other aspects of the film were inaccurately portrayed.[citation needed]

Personal life

In 1992, six years after her divorce from Ali, Porche married jazz artist and actor Carl Anderson, who played Judas Iscariot in the original production of Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as the 1973 film of the same name. The couple traveled together in the mid 1990s when Anderson reprised his role and toured the United States. Anderson died of leukemia in 2004. In May 2007, she appeared with her two daughters, Laila and Hana, on Dancing with the Stars.[4]
