Is this just going little to far ?
Granted this is unpleasant, but imagine for one second that you’re very dead—extremely dead—and someone drags your bones out of your grave to play a dark(er) game of Maury. Unpleasant, right? But the good news is this isn’t happening to you; the bad news is that it’s happening to Salvador Dalí, the Spanish artist for whom the clocks melted and, possibly, a father. A Spanish court has ordered that his body be exhumed from its 28-year slumber in order to take part in a paternity test.
The New York Times told the whole, long tale of how we got here a couple years ago, but the short of it is this: a Spanish tarot card reader and astrologist named Pilar Abel claims to be the illegitimate daughter of Dalí. Her story is that Dalí and her mother met in a small fishing village where he and is wife, Gala, had a summer home. Abel’s mom was a maid for a family nearby. They grew close. It was 1955—not the summer of love, but a summer of love. Abel was born in 1956.
