Salvador Dali's Body to Be Exhumed in Paternity Case

Salvador Dali's Body to Be Exhumed in Paternity Case

Upon his death, at age 84, Dali bestowed his estate to the Spanish state.

Late painter Salvador Dali's body is to be exhumed to gather DNA samples for a paternity test, according to the BBC.

The woman, Maria Pilar Abel Martínez, claims that her mother had an affair with the painter in 1955.

The woman, Pilar Abel, is a tarot-card reader from the nearby city of Girona.

The woman, born in 1956, claims she is Dali's child as a result of an extramarital tryst he had with her mother, who worked as a maid.

"We have the opportunity to appeal", declared a member of the Salvador Dali Foundation, headquartered in the museum with the same name from Figueras. And a judge in Madrid seems to agree, well, enough anyway to order the Spanish government dig up the surrealist master's body so that they can carry out a paternity test.

Today, 26 June 2017, the Madrid High Court of Justice ordered the exhumation of the remains of Salvador Dali, 28 years after his burial, AFP reported.

Five months later another claim was made with help of Dali's friend and biographer Robert Descharnes. Why didn't she go after the "Great Masturbator" when he was still breathing?

Dali also had a soft spot for Israel.

Returning to Catalonia after 12 years, he invited French poet Paul Eluard and his Russian wife Elena Ivanovna Diakonova to Cadaques.

Lozano recalled orgies at Dali's house during which the artist would merely watch, Gibson says, adding it was "possible" that he had sex with a woman, though he doubted it "very much". She became his muse and remained at his side for the rest of her life. Dali died in Figueres, Spain on 23 January 1989.
