Adele’s estranged father, Mark Evans, wants a relationship with his daughter after he has been absent from her life for at least 21 years. Mark left Adele with her mom when she was just three years old.
She has maintained a close relationship with her dad’s mom, her grandmother and that is a sore spot with Mark. He did tell the Mirror he has nothing but love for his daughter:
“I would have loved so much to have been able to hold her in my arms and tell her how happy I was for her. I want more than anything to be part of her life again and to be a big part in my little grandson or granddaughter’s life. I’m having to face up to the fact that I may never get to know my grandchildren and it is breaking my heart. I know I’ve been a drunk and a self-pitying fool but my heart was broken at the time and booze was the only thing that made the pain go away. I am begging her to give me another chance… It breaks my heart to think I might not see her in the years ahead or hold my little grandchild in my arms.”
Hmmmmm – not trying to be a pessimist, but why now? Oh wait, maybe it’s because he knows his daughter is rich and successful and NOW he wants a relationship with her!
