Adele - Adele Ready To Reconcile With Estranged Father

British singer Adele is keen to reconcile with her estranged father after more than 10 years of no contact.
The Chasing Pavements star's dad walked out on her mother when Adele was just a baby and he had little presence in her childhood.
The 21 year old reveals she last saw her dad at her grandmother's funeral as a teenager - but now she's finally ready to get to know him better.
She tells Britain's Q magazine, "I'd cut off contact with him when I was 10 or 11... It's just disappointing when your own blood can't keep promises.
"I always felt like I needed him to have something to compare to in other relationships with men. I didn't know what a dad was supposed to do because I'd never had one. I'm sure I'll see him again, because now I think we could be friends. I don't need him to be a dad now."
However, Adele admits not having her biological father around while she was growing up made her realise how much she values her mother: "I'm much more appreciative of her. You don't realise how important your parents are until they're gone or you spend a long time away from them. She's the one solid and permanent thing in my life."
