A 1992 court ruled in Javier Sanchez-Santo's favour but it was overturned in an appeals' court.

A 20 YEAR legal battle regarding a paternity suit against the Spanish singer Julio Iglesias has reached a Valencia court, and today a Judge ruled that he considered the claimant to be the singer's son.

The judge refused to admit the DNA evidence allegedly obtained from the singer's son, Julio Iglesias, Jr.

Judge José Miguel Bort said the decision was made due to the resemblance between the two men, and on the basis of Edite's testimony.

In its ruling, the court said Iglesias' refusal to take the DNA test and evidence of "certain contact and relations" between the singer and Santos at the time of conception were sufficient to establish paternity.

Javier Sanchez-Santos was born in 1976 to Portuguese dancer Maria Edite Santos.

The determination of this matter is not final and can be appealed before the Provincial Court of Valencia.

He also cited as proof of the singer's paternity the "obvious physical resemblance" between Iglesias and Sanchez-and the singer's steadfast refusal to carry out a DNA test despite evidence of the affair. He has sold over 300 million albums in his decades-long career.

His first marriage was to Spanish socialite Isabel Preysler with whom he had three children - including pop star Enrique. Santos aside, he has eight children, three from his relationship with Isabel Preysler, whom he married in 1971, and five more with his second wife, Miranda Rijnsburger.
