Spanish media reports a judge ruled to have Salvador Dalí's body exhumed to obtain samples for a paternity suit. 

The BBC reported that a Spanish woman, Pilar Abel, claims Dalí is her father after he had an affair with a maid in 1955.

Dalí died in 1989 and is known for his surrealist works of art, much of it prominently on display at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg
