Adele's dad: 'She won't let me see my grandson, I'm dead to her'

By
Adele's dad Mark Evans has pleaded with his daughter to allow him access to her son.

The singer hasn't spoken to her father - a part-time plumber from South Wales - since he sold a story about her to the press following the release of 21 in 2011.

"It breaks my heart that Adele is so hell-bent on cutting me off like this. I knew she had met her new fella... but it was a bolt out of the blue when I found out she was expecting," Mark told The Mail On Sunday.

"As soon as I found out, I wanted more than ever to get in touch and meet up so I could see how she was with my own eyes and let her know I'm here for her."

Mark tried various methods of contacting Adele, even turning up at her record label's office in London. He insists that the story he sold was originally meant to be a joint interview and that he assumed it was okay to proceed when his daughter pulled out.

"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. In desperation, I even went to London to see her management at her record label XL Recordings."

The 49-year-old walked out on Adele and her mother when she was 3. He saw his daughter on weekends and school holidays, before losing contact in 1999 and reuniting when she was 15.

He continued: "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.

"I'm missing out on so many of the joys of being a grandfather. Simple pleasures like taking him out for a walk in his buggy along the promenade at Penarth like I used to with Adele."

Mark also described his grandson's name - Angelo James Konecki - as "very LA" and admitted that he had hoped the baby would be named after Adele's late grandfather John.

Adele, who welcomed Angelo in October last year, is still in touch with Mark's mother Rose Evans and her half-brother Cameron, Mark's son from a later relationship.

She previously said of her dad: "I was actually ready to start trying to have a relationship with him. He's f**king blown it. He will never hear from me again.

"There's consequences other than just getting a bit of f**king money that lasts you half a year. It blows my mind. 'I love her so much.' Really? Why are you telling me that through a newspaper? If I ever see him I will spit in his face."
