"As Far As I'm Concerned, He's Gone"
Sarah Harding has spoken out about the breakdown of her relationship with her father after her parents' divorce when she was fifteen. Sarah says;
“After he and my mother divorced, he wasn’t a very nice person, and what’s done is done. Looking back, I think the split was more destructive and destabilising than I realised, because I started bunking off school and getting into trouble. I know it’s harsh, but I have no place in my life for someone like that. I came close to being in contact with him again, but he talked to the press and tried to sell pictures of me as a young girl. He’s a very selfish man and as far as I’m concerned he’s gone.”
The discussion was sparked by talk of her upcoming wedding to DJ Tom Crane, at which Sarah's father will absolutely NOT be walking her down the aisle.
It's awful to see a family so broken, but in the end, it's better to remove the destructive elements than to allow the unit to implode.
