Movie veteran Ryan O’Neal is determined to make amends with his actress daughter Tatum in 2011 after “erasing” her from his life.
The actor admits he was so hurt when his daughter announced she was marrying tennis ace John McEnroe – and didn’t invite him – that he cut her off. He says,
“I have a telegram she sent me… on the day she got married… I wanted to know why I was never invited to her wedding and that was never made clear to me… I took it very hard; I erased her.”
Father and daughter are currently filming a reality TV series, in which they analyze their relationship, for Oprah Winfrey’s new OWN TV network – and Ryan insists the show will be the first step in re-establishing his ties with Tatum.
“I’m prepared to do anything to get it right because she’s very valuable to me and I won’t let her go again without a fight… It’s not a perfect picture, but it’s not over yet.”
I hope they work it out, family is important.
