Adele’s estranged father has died at the age of 57 after years of public rows with his singer songwriter daughter.
The popstar, 33, has been candid about her rocky relationship with her father Mark Evans after he walked out on his family when the singer was just three years old.
Although it is not known what the cause of his death was, it is believed that the 57 year old suffered with bowel cancer for many years.
A source said: “Mark’s family are of course very upset with 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.”
As Adele rose to fame, their feuds became more and more public, after Mark gave an interview to a magazine in 2011.
It was announced in 2013 that the singer's father was battling bowel cancer and with fears that he would never meet his son, Angelo, the pair patched things up.

However, things took a turn for the worse during her 2017 Grammy Awards speech after she publicly slated her father, admitting “I don’t love my dad.”
During her speech, Adele told the audience: “Thank you to my manager because the comeback, as it were, was completely masterminded by him.
“And you executed it incredibly, and I owe you everything.
“We’ve been together for ten years, and I love you like you’re my dad. I love you so, so much.
“I don’t love my dad, that’s the thing. That doesn’t mean a lot. I love you like I would love my dad.”
Mark confessed in 2011 to The Sun that he was a “rotten father” when he left his ex-wife Penny to raise Adele admitting he had become an alcoholic.
He said: “I was a rotten father at a time when she really needed me.
“I was putting away two litres of vodka and seven or eight pints of Stella every day.
“I drank like that for three years. God only knows how I survived it.”
