Adele’s Father – British singer Adele’s father would like to reconnect with his superstar daughter. Mark Evans, Adele’s long-estranged father, 51, is trying to contact the singer–to no avail.
“I’ve left messages on her phone, I’ve written to her and I’ve sent her birthday and Christmas cards,” he said. “But it’s like I’m dead to her,” Evans tells the British tabloid The Daily Mail.
This is not the first time Evans has spoken out to a tabloid. Last year, he also gave an interview to The Daily Mail, explaining his absence in her life. Evans admitted to being a recovering alcoholic and leaving Adele’s mother when she was just 2.
“It’s too painful. There’s so much regret on my part — regret that I wasn’t a better father to her. I let her down badly, and I wish I could turn the clock back and do things differently,” he said. The two only had limited contact throughout Adele’s childhood.
Evans’s story certainly made sense with Adele’s 2012 Grammy acceptance speeches, where she profusely thanked her mother, but made no mention of her father.
Now, Adele’s father just wants to rebuild the relationship and insists his interest has nothing to do with her fame. “I’m not interested in her celebrity status or her money,” he added. “I just want my daughter back and I want to be a proper granddad to the little one.”
Adele and boyfriend Simon Konecki welcomed a son last fall. Adele has remained mum about her son’s name even. However, there is speculation that the baby is named Angelo. Earlier this month, the singer was spotted wearing a chain around her neck that read “Angelo” while shopping in West Hollywood.
Following her Golden Globe win for best song, Adele is rumored to perform “Skyfall” at this year’s Academy Awards. It will the first time the new mother will take the stage since giving birth last October.
