Christina Aguilera hasn't spoken to her father in years but she recently said she planned to reconcile with him. She can't find it in her heart to do the same about her grandparents, her uncle tells the tabs.
Johann Aguilera spoke to Star Magazine about how the diva has been estranged from her paternal grandparents for years and how she still refuses to see them to this day, Radar Online
, Star's parent company, reports.
That in itself wouldn't be such a bad thing, but the grandparents are old and dying. All they want is one final chance to see their granddaughter and perhaps her son Max as well, Johann says.
“Christina’s grandfather is 86 and her grandmother is 82. They have health issues. I don’t know how much longer they’re going to last. Time is running out,” Christina's uncle is quoted as saying.
It's uncertain why he'd choose to speak to the tabloids on such a delicate issue instead of reaching out to Christina herself, but chances are he will use the same excuse as others before him: going public with this was the only way he could get her to listen.
Johann insists that the singer's grandparents would also love the chance to see Max for one last time.
“I know how much joy it would give my parents if she came back into our lives again. It would mean the world to them if they could see Christina before they die,” Mr. Aguilera says in the same interview.
Radar promises more details on what started the feud in the upcoming print issue of Star, which should arrive on newsstands these days.
The singer's fans must know that she broke off all communication with her father when she was still young, revealing in later interviews that he had abused her and her mother.
Recently, though, the diva seemed to have a change of heart, saying in another interview that she was thinking of reconnecting with her father, after all these years of being estranged.
