Eddy Arnold Paternity Suit Records Sealed

From the site

A California man wants Eddy Arnold's body exhumed for a DNA test. 47-year-old Christopher Tanner is claiming to be the late country legend's son. An attorney for Arnold's estate confirmed to Nashville's Tennessean newspaper that the singer was made aware of Tanner's claim but vehemently denied his paternity.

Tanner's mother claims that she had a romantic relationship with Arnold for three years in the late 50s. She says she tried for years to arrange a meeting with the singer and her son.

Tanner insists pursuing a relationship with the Arnold family has nothing to do with Arnold's reported $40 million estate, but "more to stake my claim to being his son."

The case records were sealed Monday by the Nashville County judge.
