James Brown might have been one of the greatest dancers in the world during his lifetime, but the Godfather of Soul might have a hard time getting on his good foot in the afterlife. According to his widow Tomi Rae, Brown's legs were hacked off following his death.
Tomi Rae tells the U.K.'s Daily Mail that as part of a paternity battle between her and Brown's other heirs, investigators hacked off Brown's legs to determine if he was really the father of Tomi Rae's son James Junior. She said, "They couldn't' do the normal DNA test because of all the embalming fluid in his body. So they had to cut off his legs to get to his bone marrow. I wept uncontrollably when I found out...that was the final insult to James."
Brown's body was moved 14 times after his death before finally being buried him sixth months later.
