When we think of Hollywood actors who radiate joy and friendliness, Owen Wilson always comes to mind. With his undeniable talent and charm, Wilson has become a favorite among fans worldwide. But there is a slightly darker aspect to his personal life that often goes unnoticed – his strained relationship with his only daughter.
At 54 years old, Wilson has had a successful career in the film industry, starring in blockbuster hits like “Starsky & Hutch,” “Wedding Crashers,” “Night At The Museum,” and Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris.” But behind the scenes, his personal life has been far from smooth sailing.
Reports suggest that Wilson has refused to meet his 4-year-old daughter, Lyla, and even checked the “no visitation” box in court. When his ex-girlfriend, Varunie Vongsvirates, became pregnant in 2018, Wilson severed all ties with her. According to sources, he even changed his phone number and ignored Vongsvirates’ message informing him about their impending child.
Since Lyla’s birth in October 2018, Wilson’s only involvement in her life has been the financial support he provides. He pays a monthly sum of $25,000 for child support, along with an additional $70,000 to cover other expenses. However, he has shown no interest in having custody or building a relationship with his daughter.
Vongsvirates, on the other hand, has pleaded with Wilson to be a part of their little girl’s life. While the actor maintains a healthy relationship with the mothers of his two sons, he seems completely disinterested when it comes to Lyla. Vongsvirates even reached out to him, urging him to visit their daughter, describing her as a wonderful, little girl who bears a striking resemblance to her father, with her baby blue eyes and brilliant blonde hair.
In an interview with The Daily Mail, Vongsvirates expressed her disappointment, stating that Wilson is “not involved at all” and has never met Lyla. She emphasizes that it’s not just about financial support; Lyla needs her father in her life. It’s ironic how Wilson continues to play father roles in movies while neglecting his own daughter.
It’s such a shame that someone could act so coldly towards their own child, regardless of the circumstances. What are your thoughts on Owen Wilson’s attitude towards his daughter? Let us know in the comments and share this article to encourage further discussion.
