'I forgive you for not always being there': Lily Collins pens an open letter to her music legend father Phil Collins

Phil Colins' daughter Lily Colins has reached out to him after he was almost 'not being the dad she expected'. With five children by three wives, Collins was always going to struggle to be the perfect dad.
 Lily, a rising Hollywood star, has wrote an open letter to him, reassuring him he is ‘forgiven’ for being a disappointment. 

The 27-year-old actress, who recently received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in Warren Beatty’s Rules Don’t Apply, has published the letter in her debut book Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me.
In the book, released today, she writes: ‘I forgive you for not always being there when I needed you and for not being the dad I expected.
‘I forgive the mistakes you made. And although it may seem like it’s too late, it’s not. There’s still so much time to move forward. 

‘We all make choices and, although I don’t excuse some of yours, at the end of the day we can’t rewrite the past.
‘I’m learning how to accept your actions and vocalise how they made me feel. I accept and honour the sadness and anger I felt toward the things you did or didn’t do, did or didn’t give me.’
