Muhammad Ali's daughter, Laila Ali, is speaking out during a difficult time for the Ali family.
Last night, he had been hospitalized in Phoenix, Arizona being treated for a respiratory issue and today he is said to be on life support.
"Laila's number one priority is her father's well-being," Laila's rep told ET on Friday. "She truly appreciates the outpouring of love for her family, as she spends quality time with her dad."
"Ali, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, is being treated by his team of doctors and is in fair condition. A brief hospital stay is expected," the statement reads, adding that the family "respectfully requests privacy" during this time.
"He's getting weaker and [it's] harder for him to recover from the chronic health issues," the source said.
