    According to Marcia Cibele Aoki’s attorney Luiz Kignel, Pele’s third and final wife would receive his home in Guaruja, a beach resort town south of Sao Paulo, where the couple resided.

    Additional possessions of Pele, who passed away in late December at age 82 following a battle with cancer, include other real estate and a stake in the Pele brand, according to Kignel, who added that a full inventory has not yet been made.

    Pele’s offspring, including any unrecognized daughters he may have, will receive the remaining 70%.

    “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,” Kignel stated. 

    The woman in question, who is a Brazilian citizen, has applied for formal recognition as Pele’s daughter, claims Kignel.

    According to the G1 website, a Sao Paulo court ordered Pele to take a DNA test in September 2022. It is now necessary to administer the test to one of his seven known offspring.
