Tom Jones’s estranged son from a brief relationship has reached out to his father.

In 1987, the Welsh singer had a short romance with model Katherine Berkery, who gave birth to son Jonathan Jones Berkery not long after.

Jones agreed to pay child support for his son, but refused to meet him, claiming he was “trapped” by Katherine Berkery.

Jonathan, now 23 years old, has spoken out to The Sun to plead for a chance to meet his father.

“When I tell people who my dad is, they think I’m faking. All I want is to meet him once. Just to hear him say my name would be so cool”, he said.

Berkery went on to reveal what life growing up without his father was like, saying: “I’d lie in bed imagining doing normal stuff with him.I thought he’d walk through the door, sit down and explain to me where he’d been.

“I can’t respect him. He did what he did, and he should have been man enough to take responsibility.”

Tom Jones is known for hits like ‘Sex Bomb’ and ‘What’s New Pussycat’. He is currently a coach on the new hit singing competition show The Voice UK, which beat Simon Cowell’s Britain’s Got Talent on its premiere night.

Berkery, who is a model and singer, has expressed interest in performing for his famous father, adding, “It would be cool for him to know that I could [sing].”
