Adileusa told La Vanguardia in an interview, quoted by Mirror:

"Doctors needed to know the medical history of the parents, to find out if there is a history. She was three and a half years old.

However, the former Inter Milan striker is refusing to pay that, as he has been quoted saying:

"I contacted a mutual friend and he replied that he (Eto'o) preferred not to intervene. 'Look, Dee Dee, already I've told him and the last time he replied 'for me it as if the mother and the girl are dead, leave me alone'. I was absolutely devastated," Adileusa added.

Adileusa reportedly met the ex-Cameroon forward in a Madrid nightclub in 1997, when he used to play for Leganes, and she found out about being pregnant in 1998.
