As most of us know by now, singer Adele does not exactly have a close relationship with her father, Mark Evans. In fact, Adele has pretty much cut him out of her life. Now, Mark has opened up about his daughter, saying that he wants to be a part of her life, before then criticising her choice of name for her son.
Evans explained to the Mail on Sunday, “I've never said a bad word about Adele and I'm absolutely gutted she's cut me out of her life. 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.”
He added, “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?”
Adele is set to perform her hit Skyfall at the Oscars on February 24, where she is also nominated for the Best Original Song award and is most people’s favourite to win the award.
