Adele Father Mark Evans

Adele’s father, Mark Evans, was born in 1962 in Wales. He worked as a plumber in Cardiff. In the beginning, Mark supported Penny and her daughter. However, this changed when he moved back to Wales when Adele was only three years old.

After Mark moved back to Wales, he could not see Adele and Penny as much. Moreover, the connection was completely cut off when Mark’s father died of colon cancer. After the passing of his father, Mark turned to alcoholism, and this broke his relationship with his daughter completely.
