Referencing to the late football icon Pele‘s will, which also references a woman who may be Pele’s unrecognized daughter, the widow will receive thirty percent of his assets, the widow’s attorney told AFP on Tuesday.
According to Marcia Cibele Aoki’s attorney Luiz Kignel, Pele‘s third and final wife would receive his home in Guaruja, a beach resort town south of Sao Paulo, where the couple resided.
Additional possessions of Brazilian Giant icon, who passed away in late December at age 82 following a battle with cancer, include other real estate and a stake in the Pele brand, according to Kignel, who added that a full inventory has not yet been made.
His offspring, including any unrecognized daughters he may have, will receive the remaining 70%.
According to Kignel, “He suggested there might be another daughter, whose identification will depend on a DNA test, which could not be done owing to the epidemic and the condition of his health.”
The woman in question, who is a Brazilian citizen, has applied for formal recognition as Pele‘s daughter, claims Kignel.
According to the G1 website, a Sao Paulo court ordered the footballer before his death to take a DNA test in September 2022. It is now necessary to administer the test to one of his seven known offspring.
