Spanish judge rules 43-year-old is son of singer Julio Iglesias

Spanish singer Julio Iglesias loses legal battle

Spanish singer Julio Iglesias is the "biological father" of a 43-year-old man whose mother claimed she had a brief affair with the vocalist, a court has ruled.

Javier Sanchez-Santos, who claims to be the son of award-winning Spaniard Julio Iglesias, arrives to appear before a court in Valencia for a paternity case at City of Justice in Valencia July 4, 2019. The ruling from a court in Valencia effectively makes him Iglesias' ninth child.

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.

The legal team for Iglesias, 75, has argued that the latest trial shouldn't even have taken place as the "matter has been settled by the courts for years" and that "judgements have been issued in all judicial instances", they said in a statement.

The judge refused to admit the DNA evidence obtained by the detective.

Speaking of Wi-Fi, the search giant says the " Stadia Controller uses BLE for setup and then connects via Wi-Fi for gameplay". Google Stadia's cloud-gaming offerings are intriguing for many, but many are also anxious about the service's longevity.

In its ruling, the court said Iglesias' refusal to take the DNA test and evidence of "certain contact and relations" between the singer and Santos at the time of conception were sufficient to establish paternity. In 1999 he released an album called "Lucha y Veras", or "Fight and You Will See", which was seen as a reference to his paternity battle.

He has been married twice.

Julio Igleasias has three children with first wife Isabel Preysler, and five with his current partner, Dutch model Miranda Rijnsburger.

Iglesias has often presented himself as an unapologetic flirt with "an obsession for sex". 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.

"Don't ask me how many brothers I have", his son Julio Jr said in 2018 on television.
