The court ordered a DNA test, which proved that Tom was the real father of Katherine’s son.
Katherine went to court in 1989 and got $2,500 per month in child support.
Even though Tom paid Katherine and their child what he owed them financially, he never used his parental authority and became a part of Jonathan’s life.
Despite the fact that everything has been verified, the singer still refuses to have any contact with his son.
Jonathan has experienced his father’s absence since he was a small child. Throughout the years, he made repeated unsuccessful attempts to communicate with his father.
Furthermore, the artist refused to recognize Jonathan as his son for years, and it took him three decades to finally speak about it.
Unfortunately, Jonathan’s refusal to accept Tom Jones’ invitation to be a part of his life did more harm than good. When Jonathan was ten years old, he finally realized his father would never be a part of his life.
