Pele’s widow to inherit 30% of his assets – Lawyer

0

Widow of the late football legend Pele will inherit 30 per cent of his assets, according to his Will, which also mentions a woman who could be Pele’s unrecognised daughter, the widow’s lawyer told AFP on Tuesday.

The Will states that Marcia Cibele Aoki, Pele’s third and last wife, 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 Pele, who died after battling cancer in late December at age 82, include more real estate and a stake in the Pele brand, Kignel said, adding that a complete inventory had yet to be made.

The remaining 70 per cent is reserved for Pele’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 Pele) 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 Pele’s daughter.

In September 2022, a court in Sao Paulo ordered Pele to submit to a DNA test, according to the G1 website. The test must now be performed on one of his seven recognised children.
