Alicia Keys Reunites With Her Estranged Father!

Theballerlife.com has learned that R&B singer Alicia Keys decided to mend her relationship with her estranged father, Craig Cook, who left the family when she was just two years old.

The Fallin’ hitmaker was raised by her single mom Teresa after her dad Craig Cook left the family when Keys was just two years old, and she spent years resenting him.

But the star, who is now a mom to two-year-old son Egypt, had a change of heart when her beloved grandma died, and felt compelled to reach out to Cook to start afresh.

In a new interview with Britain’s “You” magazine, Keys said:

“My father and I are fine now. I would say in the process of growing up you realize you’ve been holding on to anger. I was angry then and am sure I had the right to be angry, but if you hold on to all this anger the only person you’re hurting is you.

“The process started when my (paternal) grandmother became ill. You realize what’s important when you see a person you love dearly and you’re not going to have them for long. It was important to her. And I saw (my father’s) love for her. I realized he wasn’t an evil person so I said, ‘Can we start from this point on? Can we be friends? I can start to understand you and you can start to understand me.'”(Source)

Good for them! We are happy to see that Alicia and her father are patching up their relationship.
