Jay-Z scarred by his Dad's departure

Jay-Z was left with a ''huge scar'' when his father walked out on him when he was just 11 years old. The 42-year-old rapper's Father, Adnis Reeves, descended into alcoholism and left their home in New York and Jay-Z - whose real name is Shawn Carter - was left devastated by the departure of his "superhero".

He said: "If your dad died before you were born, yeah, it hurts, but it's not like you had a connection with something that was real. Not to say it's any better, but to have that connection and then have it ripped away was, like, the worst. My dad was such a good dad that when he left, he left a huge scar. He was my superhero."
 
The rapper and his Dad didn't reunite until 2003. Jay-Z told GQ: "[I talked about] what it did to me, what it meant, asked him why. There was no real answer. There was nothing he could say, because there's no excuse for that. There really isn't. So there was nothing he could say to satisfy me, except to hear me out. And it was up to me to forgive and let it go."
 
The rapper's wife Beyonce Knowles is currently expecting the couple's first child and he has pledged to be a hands-on dad: "Providing - that's not love. Being there - that's more important. I mean, we see that. We see that with all these rich socialites. They're crying out for attention; they're hurting for love. I'm not being judgmental - I'm just making an observation. They're crying out for the love that maybe they didn't get at home, and they got everything. All the material things that they need and want. So we know that's not the key." Asked if he plans to change diapers, he added: "Of course. 100 per cent."
