Tom Jones's Illegitimate Son Reaches Out

Tom Jones has an adult lovechild who reached out to the crooner, asking to meet him just once. Jones had a brief romance with model Katherine Berkery back in 1987, resulting in the birth Jonathan Jones Berkery.
Jones paid child support for his son, but never met the 23-year-old. Wow. Really? Tom, why not?
Jonathan spoke to The Sun saying, "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. 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."
Jonathan said he asked his mother, "Where is he?," regarding his father, she'd reply, "He's an entertainer. He's busy. He can't be here right now." Jonathan said, "I'd see him on TV and that made me feel better. I'd think, ‘She's right. He has to do what he has to do, then he'll come home.'"
Even so, Jonathan does not respect his father. And we can't say we blame him.
"I can't respect him. He did what he did and he should have been man enough to take responsibility," he said.
Jonathan is an aspiring singer and would like his famous pop to hear his voice just once.
What do you think of the Tom Jones illegitimate child situation? Should Jones meet his son or is he coming forward too publicly?
