After Diego Maradona’s death, now his children are fighting over the inheritance left with a total of $90 million.
Diego Maradona’s inheritance
Quoting from the Spanish Media Marca, Diego Maradona’s assets worth $90 million. There are cash, a collection of luxury vehicles such as the Rolls Royce Ghost and BMW i8, various properties, and various contracts for his image rights.
Before his death, Maradona had a contract as coach of the Argentine club Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, as well as a sponsorship agreement with Puma and copyright related to Konami and EA Sports, makers of PES and FIFA games.
Now for the time being, Diego Maradona’s possessions are still under the supervision of his lawyer, Matias Morla. He is said to be starting the process of the legacy left by the Argentine football legend.
Maradona also joked that he would donate all his property when he died. However, it is not clear whether he has left a will for this or not.
According to Marca, Morla will share the inheritance with Maradona’s eight children whose existence has been recognized. However, this will certainly be difficult because recently there have been six people who claim to be Maradona’s flesh and blood and feel entitled to the inheritance.
Maradona is known as a footballer who often changes partners. Officially, he has only been married once, namely to Claudia Villafane who bore him two daughters: Dalma Nerea Maradona and Giannina Dinorah Maradona who is the ex-wife of Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero.
Many claim to be Maradona’s children
In 1993, an Italian woman named Christina Sinagra filed a lawsuit to court Maradona to admit to being the biological father of her child, Diego Jr. Sinagra. Cristina is said to be a woman who was mistaken for Maradona while playing at Napoli.
In 2019 Maradona was said to have admitted to being the biological father of six children. Obviously, it happened after fighting in court with a number of women. The six children were legally recognized as descendants of Maradona.
In addition, Maradona is also said to have children from his relationship with a young woman named Veronica Ojeda in 2013. Maradona left Ojeda when she was four months pregnant.
At the end of last year, a young man named Santiago Lara was also said to have shocked Argentina because he claimed to be a descendant of Maradona.
The division of the inheritance will take a long time and complicated.
With many parties claiming to have the flesh and blood of the legend, it is certain that the distribution of Maradona’s inheritance will be very complicated and long. Especially if you have to get proof from the court.
Diego Maradona himself died on Wednesday afternoon, November 25 at his residence in the Tigre area, Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is said to have had a heart attack after feeling unwell after eating breakfast.
Maradona’s body was buried at the Argentine Presidential Palace before being taken to Bella Vista’s funeral on Thursday evening. Thousands of Argentines are said to have accompanied the journey of their hero’s body at the 1986 World Cup.
