Enrique Iglesias: 'i Love and Respect Distant Dad'
( femalefirst.co.uk ) - Enrique Iglesias has a strained relationship with his father JULIO, but he'll always respect the crooner. The Hero singer admits he rarely sees his dad and they once went four years without speaking to each other after a family fight - but he'll always hold the Begin The Beguine singer in high regard.
He says, "We got in fights when I was younger. When I was 18 years old, I packed my bags and left."Ever since then I talk to him very little, and I see him very little. I respect him though, and I love him."
Enrique - Annoyed with competing with father Pop star Enrique Iglesias wishes people would stop making him compete with his singing legend father Julio Iglesias. The Hero hitmaker thinks it's "ridiculous" he is compared to his successful father - and insists their careers are completely different. He fumes, "Record companies do make you compete a bit, and they did that especially at the beginning of my career. I was just an 18-year-old starting out and to make me compete with my father was a bit ridiculous."
