STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish man who paid alimony for 13 years for a child he knew was not his has been proven right and now wants half a million crowns ($65,000) in compensation, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

The man, 70, had a brief affair with the boy's mother in the late 1960s, the daily Expressen said. After giving birth, the woman told a court the man was the father. A blood test did not rule out paternity and the court ordered alimony.

For 13 years the man paid up and met the boy regularly. He remained convinced he was not the father and last year asked the boy, now 34, to take a DNA test to settle the matter.
