Soccer legend Pele’s widow will inherit 30 percent of his estate, the widow’s lawyer told AFP on Tuesday, according to his will, which also refers to a woman who may be Pele’s unrecognized daughter.

The will provides that Pelé’s third and final wife, Marcia Cibele Aoki, will inherit his mansion in Guaurujá, a coastal town south of São Paulo, where the couple lives, according to their attorney, Luiz Kignel.

Pele, who died of cancer in late December at the age of 82, has other assets which include other properties and an interest in the Pele brand, Kignel said, adding that a full inventory has not yet been made.

The remaining 70% is reserved for Pele’s children, including an unrecognized daughter he has.Pele’s widow to inherit 30 percent of the football legend’s assets

According to Kignel, the woman in question is a Brazilian citizen and legal action has been taken to have her recognized as Pelé’s daughter.

In September 2022, Pelé was sentenced to undergo a nucleic acid test by the São Paulo judiciary, according to the G1 website. One of her seven recognized children now needs to be tested.
