Spain court rules 43-year-old man is son of Julio Iglesias

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

A Spanish court ruled today that Grammy award-winning singer Julio Iglesias is the biological father of a 43-year-old man after a protracted paternity battle with the star.

Javier Sanchez and Maria Edite Santos arrive at court.

The judge in Valencia said there were enough clues to determine paternity, and cited Iglesias' refusal to "enable the collection of biological evidence" as one of the deciding factors.

The judge in Valencia, on Spain's Mediterranean coast, said he based his ruling partially on the "obvious" resemblance between the two men.

The judge's ruling issued Wednesday said "there existed contacts and a relationship between the mother of (Sánchez and Iglesias) near the date of conception".

Mr Santos has spent much of his life seeking to prove he was the product of a 1975 fling between his mother, Portuguese former dancer Maria Edite, and Iglesias.

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.

But Osuna had argued a new trial was justified as they had "DNA evidence" brought from the United States by a detective.

Lawyers said a DNA test showed that Mr Iglesias Jr and Mr Santos were brothers.

He has enjoyed modest success as a singer and DJ.

The Grammy-winning singer, who has sold more than 300m albums over a long career, is probably Spain's biggest global star and sang at the White House at Ronald Reagan's Christmas party.

The singer has eight other children, including pop star Enrique Iglesias.

He has often presented himself as an unapologetic flirt with "an obsession for sex". "I don't even know myself". While the DNA did not come directly from Iglesias, the sample was actually collected from "a bottle of water" used by his son, Julio Iglesias Jr.
