Football legend Pele’s Will has revealed that his widow will inherit 30 per cent of his assets.
According to the Will, 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, her lawyer Luiz Kignel said.
Kignel said 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, adding that a complete inventory had yet to be made.
It was disclosed that 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.
Kignel clarified that the woman in question is a Brazilian national and she has taken legal steps to be recognised as Pele’s daughter.
It could be recalled that in September 2022, a court in Sao Paulo ordered Pele to submit to a DNA test. The test must now be performed on one of his seven recognized children.
