Pilar Abel, the now-infamous Spanish tarot-card reader, is now officially not the heir to Salvador Dali’s estate. It seems her gift to see others’ futures was not introspective. The Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation announced that a DNA test had disproved Abel’s claim that her mother engaged in an affair with Dali that produced the alleged heir while she was working as a domestic caretaker. Abel, so certain of her lineage, once told a Spanish newspaper that the “only thing I'm missing is a mustache." The pieces of Dali that were removed during the court-ordered exhumation have been restored to their owner.
