DNA tests refute Dali’s ‘daughter’ claims

DNA tests on the exhumed body of Salvador Dali have proved that the Spanish woman who brought a legal case was not the surrealist artist’s daughter, according to a statement released on Wednesday by Dali’s foundation.

The foundation said the court supervising the tests had informed its lawyers that the woman, Maria Pilar Abel, was not Dali’s biological daughter after comparing her DNA with samples taken from Dali’s remains.

A spokesman for the court declined to confirm the results of the DNA tests. (Reuters)
