The estranged son of Glen Campbell is desperate to reunite with his Alzheimer’s-stricken dad – but he says the country music legend isn’t interested!
Kane Campbell, who has battled drug addiction and spent time in prison, told The ENQUIRER that he’d love to mend fences with the “Rhinestone Cowboy” singer before the mind-wasting disease takes too big a toll.
Sadly, Kane says Glen had let it be known he doesn’t want to meet with him.
“I know I haven’t led the life my father would have liked, but I still love him and I’d do anything to see him again,” Kane said. “I got out of prison about a year ago and I’m sober and trying to get my life back on track.”
The 76-year-old Grammy winner was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in January 2011. He struggles with short-term memory loss but refuses to slow down and is currently performing his nationwide “Goodbye Tour.”
Kane, 43, is Glen’s son by his second wife, Billie Jean. He was released from California’s Corcoran State Prison last year after serving time for vandalism and says reuniting with his father would help him stay clean.
“I don’t want my dad to die thinking I was the son who never got his life together,” Kane added. “I just want one more chance to tell him that I love him and that I’m sorry – and I want to say goodbye.”
When Glen was contacted by The ENQUIRER, he said: “I’ve heard my son Kane is out of prison and I would be glad to help him out.”
