10 Estranged Parents Who Talked About Their Famous Kid in the Media
There are several famous families that seem to have nothing but love for each other, like the Jonas Brothers clan. There are also families like the Kardashian-Jenner members, who definitely have their typical arguments and drama, but ultimately have nothing but love for one another. Unfortunately, there are also some stars who don’t have the greatest relationships with their parents.
Some might have lost their mother or father to cancer, while others are simply not in contact with a parent, for reasons that might be unclear. There are actually several female singers who have spoken honestly about their rocky relationships with their estranged parents. In many cases, stars will become estranged from their parents pre-fame, at a young age. However, once a person skyrockets to fame, their estranged parents will act more vocal about their celebrity child — whether it’s to publicly diss them or reach out in hopes of a reconciliation.
Louis Tomlinson hasn't spoken to his father for several years, but things got super messy in 2015, when Troy spoke out about Louis' baby news.
Last year, Troy attended a One Direction concert and said, "I haven't been there for most of his life, so I understand I'm not one of his main priorities." A few months later, he seemed to feel far more bitter, reportedly threatening to expose family secrets if Louis continued to give him the cold shoulder!
After news broke that Louis was expecting a child, Troy jumped at the information, seeing it as a way to fall back into his son's life. "I'd like to be involved in my grandchild's life," Troy said. "I've missed out on Louis' life and I'd like to make up for that. It's definitely time to heal the rift. Life is too short." Considering that we haven't heard any news about the Tomlinson family's personal affairs, it looks like Troy is keeping his mouth shut (for now, at least).
