Adele’s estranged father Mark Evans dies aged 57

Adele’s father Mark Evans has died at the age of 57, it has been reported. The Someone Like You singer had been estranged from Evans over the years. It’s said that Evans had battled cancer for some time, with a source telling The Sun: ‘Mark’s family are of course very upset by his passing.

 He always hoped things would work out with Adele, but it remained acrimonious to the end. ‘He made a few attempts to make things right, but clearly it had been too long.’

Adele, 33, has previously spoken about the strained relationship she had with her father, who left her mother Penny Adkins when the singer was three. In one interview, the musician said: ‘I don’t hate him — he’s my dad.’

 Evans revealed he was battling bowel cancer in 2013 and feared he wouldn’t get to meet his grandson, Adele’s son Angelo who she shares with ex-husband Simon Konecki.
