Pele sued by grandkids for child support
BRASïLIA (AFP) - Two teenage grandchildren of Brazil football legend Pele are suing him for child support, the Diario de Sao Paulo reported on Thursday.
The two, aged 13 and 15, are the sons of Pele's daughter Sandra Regina, who died in 2006.
They are seeking support payment of US$6,000 (S$7,500) for each to cover health insurance and education as well compensation of an unspecified amount.
The daily quoted their lawyer, Claudio Forssell, as saying that the teenagers "were abandoned intellectually, morally and materially" by their grandfather.
