Julio Iglesias paternity hearing is told that there is strong evidence that he is the father
Mother claiming her son, 44, is the love child of Julio Iglesias. He leaves the court smiling after paternity is heard. There is strong evidence that the singer IS is the father even without a DNA test.
- Maria Edite believes her son Javier Sanchez is the son of singer Julio Iglesias
- She says he was born nine months after they spent a week together in 1975
- Sanchez & # 39; s lawyer said the paternity case could already be decided next week
The mother of a man who claims to be the love child of the Spanish singer Julio Iglesias, laughs to the judge today as the long-term paternity suit is one step closer to a conclusion.
Maria Edite Santos believes that her son, Javier Sanchez Santos, was born as the result of a brief affair with the crooner in 1975.
At a court hearing in Valencia today, she called on the singer to do a DNA test, which he has always refused.
According to El Pais, the court heard that Sanchez, the alleged love child, was born nine months after Iglesias had spent a week with the Portuguese ballerina Edite.

Sanchez & # 39; s lawyers also say that the & # 39; great physical similarity between father and son & # 39; is an indication of the true origin of their client.
In addition, they say the DNA has proven that he is not the son of Edite & # 39; s then husband, whose name was Sanchez.
In other words, his father must be someone else – but Iglesias, now 75, has long refused to have the test to prove if it is him.
Leave the courtroom, a smiling Edite called on Iglesias to undergo the DNA test and acknowledge & # 39; a great son that I am very proud of & # 39 ;.
Sanchez's lawyer said that the court within & # 39; a few days & # 39; could make a decision and said he was convinced of the victory in the case.
If the court rejected the paternity ruling, Sanchez could still pursue this at the European Court of Human Rights, the lawyer said.

It could end there anyway, because Iglesias could contest a statement against him, he said.
Sanchez won a ruling in his favor as early as 1992, declaring that Iglesias was his biological father.
But that verdict was later overturned and Iglesias' lawyers argue that the case cannot be re-investigated.
Famous for its romantic ballads and productive love life, Iglesias has sold more than 300 million albums in its decades-long career.
He has been married twice, with the Spanish socialist Isabel Preysler with whom he had three children, and with Miranda Rijnsburger, his current wife with whom he still has five.
