Rumor has it Adele’s estranged father is trying to reconcile with her. According to the Mail Online – Mark Evans – who left Adele when she was three years old – has spoken out about his wish to reunite.He insists he wants to meet the singer’s 3-month-old son – reportedly named Angelo James.
He said, “I’ve left messages on her phone, I’ve written to her and I’ve sent her birthday and Christmas cards but it’s like I’m dead to her. I’m not interested in her celebrity status or her money, I just want my daughter back and I want to be a proper granddad to the little one.”
“Not only did I hear I was going to be a granddad for the first time via the media, I found out the same way that she’s calling the baby Angelo James. I’d hoped so much that she’d put my late dad’s name, John, in there somewhere, but alas it looks as if it is not going to be. ‘I’m not sure why she’s chosen James, other than a reference to James Bond, and God alone knows where Angelo has come from. It’s very LA, isn’t it?”
Evans – a Welsh plumber who lives in Cardiff – added, “I want to do all the grandad stuff with him – feed the ducks in park, skim pebbles in the sea, splash around in the surf. And then there’s all the music we could listen to together. I’d play him my old blues records and sing him lullabies to help him close his eyes at bedtime. I just want normality. I want to be like any other grandad. I’ve got mates who I see with their grandchildren and I can’t bear to watch. It shows me what I’m missing out on.”
In her interview in Vogue – Adele was adamant she never wants to see her father again. Explaining that she hasn’t really had a relationship with him in a decade – she got upset that he sold a story to The Sun newspaper.
She shared, “I was actually ready to start trying to have a relationship with him. He’s (expletive) blown it. He will never hear from me again. Because there is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press. It’s like, Just let them run it, then. Don’t you give them ammunition.”
She added, “If I ever see him I will spit in his face.”
