Not Cool! James Brown’s Body Dug Up Several Times; Dismembered For DNA Testing

This is one of those instants where family greed is just over the top!

Music legend James Brown cannot rest in peace — his body has reportedly been moved 14 times due to family disputes. In addition, his body has been dismembered as part of a paternity dispute.

Speaking with London’s The Mail on Sunday, Brown’s widow, Tomi Rae calls the situation tragic after one of Brown’s was cut up following a DNA testing ruling by a judge to determine if Brown was the father of Rae’s son, James Jr.

“They couldn’t do the normal DNA test because of all the embalming fluid in his body,” Rae said. “So they had to cut off his legs to get to his bone marrow. I wept uncontrollably when I found out. My husband, the greatest dancer in the world, had his legs hacked off in death.”

This is horrific!
