At some point or another, we’ve all had a bit (or a lot) of drama with one or both of our parents. I think it’s pretty normal in most families. For me, I went off the wagon as a teenager and gave my mother absolute hell. Now that I’m older, our relationship is so much better. But, what about parents who are or seem to be so terrible in the eyes of their child, so much so that the child wants nothing to do with them?
My ex-boyfriend despised his father so much (he was an abusive parent), he refused to see him or speak to him. When I met him, it had already been about 13 years since he had anything to do with his father.
Adele’s father abandoned his family when the now famous singer was only two years old and she has never forgiven him.
Kate Hudson’s parents also divorced when she was very young. She is estranged from her father and considers her mother’s longtime partner, Kurt Russell to be her father.
Christina Aguilera has been estranged from her father since she was six years old.
Brie Larson had a tough childhood and hasn’t had anything to do with her father since she was 10 years old.
