Pele admits infidelity to all three ladies; The Brazilian legend does not know what number of kids he has
Brazilian soccer legend and three-time world champion Pele admitted he doesn’t know how many children he has biologically.
Pele admitted that despite marrying three times, he had many affairs than he could count
According to the British Sun, he says, “In all fairness, I had some matters, some of which resulted in children, but I didn’t find out about them until later.”
Pele has seven known offspring, including Sandra Machado, whom he did not recognize even though the courts ruled in 1996 that she was his daughter.
Five of his children – Kelly (54), Edinho (50), Jennifer (42) and the twins Joshua and Celeste (24) – came from his first two marriages to Rosemeri dos Reis Cholbi and Assiria Lemos Seixas.
Sandra, who died of cancer in 2006, was the result of an illegal romance with the housemaid Anisia Machado. An affair with the journalist Lenita Kurtz in 1968 gave birth to the 52-year-old daughter Flavia.
In the documentary ‘Pelé’ the Brazilian says: “My first wife, my first friend, knew about it. I never lied. “The documentary will be streamed on Netflix on Tuesday, February 23rd.
Pele started playing football professionally at the age of 15 and was an international football player by the age of 16.
He has scored 1,279 goals in 1,363 games, including friendlies.
