Aaron Levi claims that Wilt Chamberlain is his biological father. Chamberlain, who played the in NBA, boasted of having sex with nearly 20,000 women and was a larger-than-life figure on the basketball court, according to The Inquisitr. When Chamberlain died in 1999 at age 63, he had never married.
It is believed that he never had any children either, but Sports Illustrated talked with his 50-year-old man who believes that he is Wilt Chamberlain’s biological son.
“It’s been a burden on me to feel that I am her secret … and I am Wilt’s secret, and I am the Chamberlain’s family secret.”
Aaron Levi Adoption
Levi, who was adopted, is 6 feet, 5 inches tall and weighs 250 pounds. He said he doesn’t want money from Chamberlain’s estate. He said he searched for his biological parents and found that his birth mother had told a social services agency about the father: “a single, 28-year-old black professional basketball player with black hair, brown eyes and bronze complexion, 6’ 10″, 240 pounds, born in Kansas, with a master’s degree.”
Aaron Levi and Wilt Chamberlain’s family don’t agree on much. First, the NBA player was from Philadelphia, but played at KU. However, he left without obtaining a degree.
Levi was adopted and raised in Oregon before moving to California, according to Al.com. He now lives and works in the art industry in San Francisco. It took him years to find his birth mother, a British woman, who said she met Chamberlain at a jazz club in the mid-1960s, went one date with him and never saw him again.
Wilt Chamberlain Makes Famous Quote
Chamberlain was famous for saying you’ll never find any “little Wilties” despite his myriad sexual escapades. But Levi insists that he’s not out for money and simply wants to connect with the black side of his family. He has reached out, but they don’t want to see or hear from him.
“I am simply an adopted person who has been on a long journey of self-discovery … (I am) reaching out to people to learn more about where I came from.”
Aaron Levi and Wil Chamberlain’s family see things different, notes the Daily Maili. One is driven to receive closure with it being accepted that the family was in fact his father. Levi’s picture does show a lot of resemblance to the former NBA player.
