Adele has admitted if she ever saw her father again she would "spit in his face".

The six time Grammy Award winner has told US Vogue magazine of how she wants nothing to do with her estranged father.

Mark Evans sold his story to The Sun last year, discussing his alcohol addiction and split from Adele's mother, something which she says has scuppered any chance of a reconciliation for them.

"I was actually ready to start trying to have a relationship with him," she said. "He's fucking blown it.

"He will never hear from me again. Because there is nothing that would upset me more than my dad being bribed by the press. It's like, 'Just let them run it, then. Don't you give them ammunition'.

"It makes me angry! To come back after 10 years and be like, 'Maybe her problem with men comes down to me'. It's like, 'Fuck off! How dare you comment on my life?' It makes my blood boil."

"I know that all those memories would come flooding back because I'd be thinking how proud dad would be of his granddaughter and it would tear me apart all over again," he said. "I can't deal with loss."

"I don't just mean that it unsettles me - it absolutely crucifies me. I don't want to go through that again. I've heard her songs when they've come on the radio and I watched some of her performance at the Brits.

"But even then I had to walk out of the room halfway through. I couldn't bear the memories it brought up."
