Spanish judge rules Julio Iglesias biological father of 43-year-old man

Хулио Иглесиас проиграл 30-летнюю тяжбу и признан родным отцом 43-летнего португальца

A Spanish court ruled on Wednesday that singer Julio Iglesias is the father of a 43-year old man, resolving a paternity dispute that had lasted three decades after the veteran star refused to take a DNA test.

After examining the paternity suit, a judge at a court in the eastern city of Valencia "declares that Julio Iglesias is his biological father", the court said in a statement.

The judge said there was "evidence in the proceedings that, at the approximate time of the applicant's conception, there were certain contacts and dealings between the mother of the latter and that defendant".

The judge also said a factor in his ruling was the testimony of Sanchez-Santos' mother, Maria Edite Santos, a Portuguese former dancer who has publicly spoken about her fight to have her son's paternity recognized.

Iglesias' lawyers say they will appeal the decision.

Julio's defence team had argued that the trial should not take place since the case had already gone to court before and had been dismissed.

That test showed that Julio Iglesias Jr and Sanchez were brothers, Osuna added.

The detective managed to get hold of a water bottle that the singer's son Julio Iglesias Jr was drinking from when he was surfing in Miami.

Mrs Edite told the court in Valencia that she had a one-week affair with Iglesias in Catalonia in July 1975 and that Javier was born nine months later.

Iglesias now has 20 days to lodge an appeal if he so wishes.

'Javier won the trial. Santos aside, he has eight children, three from his relationship with Isabel Preysler, whom he married in 1971, and five more with his second wife, Miranda Rijnsburger. "I don't even know myself".
