Salvador Dali’s Body to Be Exhumed for Paternity Case
A Madrid court has ordered the exhumation of Spanish artist Salvador Dali to get samples for a paternity lawsuit. A woman, born in 1956, claims the Surrealist had an affair with her mother, who worked as a maid. The judge said the exhumation is necessary given a lack of other biological remains or personal objects. Dali and his wife married in 1934 and never had children. The woman and her family have been trying to gain recognition of her paternity since 2007.
