Reporting Heather Converse
Adele’s estranged Dad has put out a plea to the 6 time Grammy winner. He would like to be apart of the singer’s life and a grandfather to her new baby boy. The relationship with her father has been strained since he walked out on Adele and her mother, Penny Adkins, when she was just 3 years old.
“It’s like I’m dead to her,” Evans said. “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.”
Adele and her father had worked on their relationship, but had a falling out when he spoke about their rocky relationship in the press. In a Vogue interview Adele said, “He will never hear from me again. Because there is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press,” she said. “It makes my blood boil . . . If I ever see him I will spit in his face.”
Since then they have not spoken and her father Mark Evans says he’s not interested in her money or fame but he just wants to spend time with little Angelo James, “I want to do all the granddad stuff with him –- feed the ducks in park, skim pebbles in the sea, splash around in the surf,” Evans said. “I just want normality. I want to be like any other granddad. 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.”
