It’s been a busy month for secret half-sister. First, Lindsay Lohan’s father Michael was in the news for fathering a child out wedlock and now it looks like Katy Perry’s father also has a child that he’s distanced himself from.
Perry’s pastor dad Keith Hudson, who gave the brunette beauty a strict Christian upbringing, has 43-year-old Jodi Hudson from his first marriage and she has hit out at her estranged father after he recently uploaded a video on YouTube advising parents, “Don’t close the door on your children.”
She told America’s Star magazine “This man is preaching something he should have done himself. I broke down when I saw that video. He completely abandoned me when I was a child and has had almost nothing to do with me throughout my life. I spent a night in my father’s house in Santa Barbara when Katy was about four or five. I didn’t know what a father was. My mother hyped up the fact that I was going to see him. When he walked in the room, he said, ‘Get out of my way, kid. I’m here to see your mother.’ ”
While Jodi clearly feels resentful towards her father, she doesn’t feel the same about the 28-year-old pop star, who also has a sister, Angela, 30, and 24-year-old brother David. She explained “It is hurtful that I am kept a secret but I have nothing bad to say about her.”Tweet
