Brazilian football great Pele, who has been married three times, has revealed that he had so many affairs and didn’t know how many kids he fathered; unaware that some of them even existed.
According to British tabloid, The Sun, Pele says in the new documentary: “In all honesty I’ve had a few affairs, some of which resulted in children, but I’ve only learned about them later.”
Pele has seven known kids including Sandra Machado, who he refused to acknowledge even after the courts ruled in 1996 that she was his daughter. Five of his children—Kelly, 54, Edinho, 50, Jennifer, 42, and twins Joshua and Celeste, 24—came from his first two marriages to Rosemeri dos Reis Cholbi and Assiria Lemos Seixas.
