Adele's father has cancer and he has been trying to reconnect with his daughter following his diagnosis. On Sept. 9, MSN reported that Adele's estranged father was recently diagnosed with bowel cancer. Mark Evans has been seeking reconciliation with his daughter and this has become more intense since he revealed that he's been undergoing treatment for cancer.
"Evans has now revealed he is battling cancer and has undergone surgery to have a number of tumors removed from his stomach and bowel. He is currently awaiting the results of further tests before his treatment continues and he has issued a heartfelt plea to his daughter, requesting to meet his 11-month-old grandson, Angelo, before it is too late," MSN reports.
Adele's father has cancer but he said that he didn't want to worry his daughter with the news. However, he said that he has been trying to reach out to her for quite some time but he doesn't even have her phone number. Evidently his prognosis isn't great so he's trying everything he can to make amends with his daughter -- and he really wants to meet his grandson.
Evans said that he told the media about his cancer because he hopes that his daughter will read the news and contact him. "Trying to get hold of my daughter is like trying to call the U.S. President... I haven't got [Adele's] number... I sent her birthday cards via her record label, but never heard back," he explained.
Adele's father's cancer sounds serious but, at this point, it doesn't sound like Adele has any intention of reaching out to him.
