Miranda Kerr’s parents reveal anguish over strained relationship

Miranda Kerr - Family Relationship

Therese and John Kerr revealed supermodel daughter Miranda Kerr effectively cut them out of her and son Flynn’s lives. The Australian-based Kerrs said they haven’t seen their daughter of grandson “in over a year.”

“We have been best friends for most of our life. We used to talk just about every day,” Therese told Australia’s ABC1 for an interview that will air next week. News.com.au transcribed the report.

ABC1 refers to the interview as a “love letter” from John and Therese to Miranda. But their comments really don’t glorify the H&M model…

“Miranda’s life is so different now (and) she’s surrounded by yes people all the time. It’s so important for me to be real, to be true, to be who she needs me to be,” said Therese, who was fired from her role as managing director for Miranda’s skincare line.

Added John, “After what I know now I would rather she did just marry a nobody because you really can’t get that family time by yourself. I just hope Flynn grows up and he wants to be with his nan and pop.”

Although John wished his daughter sought a low-profile life, he said her ex-husband, Orlando Bloom, was always kind to the family. In fact, Orlando was the one who broke the news to the Kerrs about his and Miranda’s separation.

John and Therese said they are proud of Miranda and what she’s accomplished, even if it presents challenges.

“What I have had to do is let go and allow her to be assertive and lead her own life,” Therese said. “I guess for any mum that’s a little bit challenging sometimes to do that.”

John added his biggest wish is to spend more time with 3-year-old Flynn.

“What I’d really like to do as a granddad now is teach Flynn how to milk a cow, how to ride a horse, teach him all them country things.”

Miranda’s representative said the model is grateful for her parents’ “ongoing support and love.”

“The Kerr family have a special and unique bond and I’m sure this intimate insight will be viewed fondly by all.”
