Black Eyed Peas star and The Voice UK judge Will.i.am spoke to the Radio Times about his absent father and why he refuses to track him down.
I had this conversation with my mom. It was like a Darth Vader moment. I was talking about him, and she said, “I am your daddy.”’She said, “Willy, let me ask you something. When it was raining that day and I put an umbrella over your head, were you upset that I didn’t let you get wet? When it was cold and I put a jacket over you, were you upset that I didn’t let your skin get cold? So don’t be upset I protected you from things… and as a matter of fact I am your dad.”
When asked if he ever wanted to track his father down Will replied,
‘No. Why? For what? My mom is my freakin’ dad.
He says all this but I suspect that deep down he would like to meet his father.
