The widow of late football legend, Pelé will inherit 30 percent of his assets, according to his Will, which also mentions a woman who could be his unrecognized daughter, the widow's lawyer told AFP on Tuesday.
The Will states that Pelé's third and last wife, Marcia Cibele Aoki will inherit his mansion in Guaruja, a seaside resort town south of Sao Paulo, where the couple lived, according to her lawyer Luiz Kignel. Other assets belonging to Pelé, who died after battling cancer in late December at age 82, include more real estate and a stake in the Pelé brand, Kignel said, adding that a complete inventory has yet to be made.
The remaining 70 percent is reserved for Pelé's children, including an unrecognised daughter that he may have. "He indicated the possibility of the existence of another daughter, whose recognition will depend on a DNA test, which could not be carried out (on Pelé) due to the pandemic and the state of his health", said Kignel.
According to Kignel, the woman in question is a Brazilian national and she has taken legal steps to be recognised as Pelé's daughter. Last September, a court in Sao Paulo ordered Pelé to submit to a DNA test, according to the G1 website.
The test must now be performed on one of his seven recognised children.
