Adele's Father Reveals He Has No Contact With Singer: 'It's Like I'm Dead To Her'

Since he sold a story about her to the press in 2011, Mark Evans has yet to have any contact with his daughter Adele -- and he has a feeling that trend isn't going to end.

In a new interview, Evans admitted to The Daily Mail that he has had no access to Adele or her 3-month-old son and feels like she has completely shut him out of her life.

"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," Evans, 49, told The Daily Mail. "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."

Adele, 24, has been dating her son's father, Simon Konecki, since January of last year. Still, Evans hasn't had the chance to meet him ... and probably never will.

Evans left Adele's mother Penny when the Grammy-winning singer was three and has not had a good relationship with his daughter since. After he cashed in on the story, Adele dissed her dad, openly admitting she would never speak to him again.

"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," Adele told Vogue magazine in Feb. 2012. "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."

"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," Evans, a Welsh plumber, added to The Daily Mail. "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."
