Christina Aguilera's bad feelings towards her father Fausto are well-known, stemming from alleged abuse towards her and sister Rachel as children, as well as their mother Shelly. For his part, Fausto Aguilera has always denied those allegations, saying in one interview that he and his wife "disagreed on a lot of things and we both had hot tempers" but that he had "never abused them in any way, and they know that." Aguilera, now 31, indicated in a recent interview with "Latina Magazine" that she might be open to reconciliation. "[M]aybe one day we can do lunch ... I'm 31 years old now. Maybe it's time."

OK, any man can father a child. He did not give her life. He just made a deposit. My saying to my first child who was neglected by his father was always, "Any man can father a child, but it takes a real man to be a Daddy!!!" My son was recently married and was adament that he did not want his biological father knowing any of it. His stepfather, whom has been his daddy since he was 1 1/2 was and is his dad. His biological father has always known where he is and has made alot of broken promises and never spent a dime on him over the years.
You go Adele, maybe you will open the eyes of these dead beat dads out there!!!!
And as for people making comments after this.... Like I said, his father always knew where he was and was never turned away if he wanted to see him. But, he never wanted to see him, he was too busy having his cake and eating it too. He even saw him on his birthday one year, by chance, not because he wanted to, and didn't even give him a birthday wish, card or gift. So like people are saying, Adele has her reasons and she is sticking to them and I congratulate her for that!!!!!!!!!!
I notice the comments are from men, does the truth hurt????????
Her father may have helped to give her life (but it does take 2) but it seems it was her mother that gave her the 'comfort of living'. Like it was said in an earlier post, who are you to judge her. You don't know her nor do you know her father. Would like to see how you would react if you were in half of these stars shoes!!!
Also I agree that men are given a bad rap, just because a couple of men do not look after their child appropriately, does not mean that all men are that way!!! There are wonderful single dads and single moms!!
Posting a quick response to such a emotional and complicated situation is not fair to all sides involved in the MSN headline. Vilifying Adele for speaking out (if she did, and the media did not in actuality spin her words), is unfair and shallow. If she is speaking out to heal and face her emotions and anger, then let her do that. I wonder if the negative posters are ALWAYS careful with their words. Hopefully they never use gay as a put down, and show tolerance for the poor and homeless.
Unless we know Adele personally (thus her personal situation), we really have no right to pass judgment or condemn her opinion.
I ask of the folks who have posted here: do you speak from experience and empathy? Have you ever suffered pain because of a troubled upbringing or traumatic situation.
In order to pass judgement perhaps we need to spend a day (or more), in that persons' shoes.
The first thoughts that came to my mind were, "gee, that may be why she can compose and sing such touching songs...because she is working through her pain in a constructive way.
Thank you for reading and hopefully taking time to reflect.
It seems that some anger is aimed at fathers who abandoned them due to a separation or divorce
resulting in the trials of single parenthood. Hmmmm! Understandable consequences.
Thus exposing families to the biases of family court.
It's not humerous that we as a society try and take daddies away from their daughters in family court.
Shame on us!
Men have been put in many bad situations due to a relationship gone wrong. The courts and public have grouped all men together for some bad . Just like there are bad or terrible wives ,girlfriends ,and even mothers. We all need to be judged on our individual actions and yes men and women are human . Adel deserves the right speak about her father any way she wishes but remember we don't know his life ,troubles or his hurtful past of his own . Blame society and government ........change your outlook and change the stereo types for the future of our kids and grandkids. Because your Son or Daughter could be in this position 20 yrs from now .
Abused Single Father , with wonderful children ..Canada
i support ADELE on her feelings , afterall she is human and when you hurt someone so bad it takes a lifetime to heal , so for all you ADELE bashers take a look at yourself first , just because she is sucsesfull she cant have feelings????? LOSERS
I think it's really too bad she said that...it's always sad to hear about a hurting family.
i hate to admit this,,,but if asked, I probably would have said the same thing, My father was horrible to us.
The question is...would i? I'd like to think I would....I don't think I'd actually do it though.
but I'm certain I'd give him the finger
