Adele's estranged dad Mark Evans has reportedly passed away at the age of 57.
The pair are said to have had a fractured relationship after he left her mother when the singer was just three years old.
A source told The Sun: "Mark’s family are of course very upset by 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."
Daily Star has contacted Adele's representative for a comment.
Mark revealed he was battling bowel cancer in 2013 and feared he would never meet his grandson, Angelo — Adele’s son with charity entrepreneur Simon Konecki, who she divorced in March.
He was born in Wales before moving to London where he lived with Adele and her mother Penny Adkins.
However, he did not stick around for long, leaving his daughter when she was just a toddler.
Mark left their Tottenham home, moved to Cardiff and later became a plumber.
He previously opened up his alcoholism during Adele's childhood
Speaking to The Sun back in 2011, 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.
"I was deeply ashamed of what I'd become and I knew the kindest thing I could do for Adele was to make sure she never saw me in that state."
Adele hasn't held back on her feelings towards her dad in the past.
Speaking the Grammy Awards in 2017, the Someone Like You hitmaker said of her long-time manager Jonathan Dickens: "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."
Five years before that night, Adele was extremely unhappy after Mark spoke out saying his her relationship issues.
She remarked: "He's f***ing blown it. He will never hear from me again. It makes me angry.
"To come back after ten years and be like 'Maybe her problem with men comes down to me.'
"It's like 'how dare you comment on my life?' It makes my blood boil."
