YOU CAN’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ. SONNY LISTON DAUGHTER, MY AUNT ARLETHA REVEALED. WHAT ELSE DID GETTY IMAGES GET WRONG?

The girl Eleanor in the picture is not Sonny’s daughter. Sonny and Geraldine could not have children together. Geraldine had three children from her first marriage to Bill Gardner, my grandfather. Sonny Liston helped to raise, my father Bobby Gardner, my aunt Arletha Gardner, and my uncle Charles Gardner. Geraldine and Sonny had legal guardianship of Daniel Wiese until his 18th birthday. The world made the mistake of believing that Sonny and Geraldine adopted Daniel Wiese. Daniel could not be adopted because his mom would not give up custody. His name is Daniel Wiese, he added the Liston name to his name later on in his life.
