"His name is Charlie Ritchie, and he and Ali met while on vacation," a friend of Ali's toldLife & Style. The friend said Ali and Charlie went out on "several dates." He's reportedly a 33-year-old Canadian. "Ali clearly wants to stay in touch with this guy because they're friends on Facebook, and she even tagged him in her photos," the friend added.
OK, but unless she’s moving to Canada or he’s moving to … San Diego or San Francisco or L.A. or wherever Ali settles on living, they will have to do the long-distance thing. It doesn’t sound serious — at least, not a serious threat to our (delusion?) fervent hope that Ali and Roberto Martinez will get back together. Eventually.
