Jessica Chastain Refuses To Acknowledge Her Biological Dad

| Filed under: Jessica ChastainFamilyPerezcious Parenting


Jessica Chastain is one heck of an actress, but she's got some serious family drama!

Her biological father Michael Monasterio passed away recently, someone she never knew or ever wanted to know!

Here's what a source had to say about it:

“Michael adored Jessica, but it broke his heart that she never mentioned his existence, for whatever reason,”

Obviously this is totally Jessica's decision, and we just hope she's at peace with herself.

We guess we understand how she's such a great actress, she uses her hard knock life as a recipe for success in dark Oscar nominated films!

UPDATE: We're hearing that some news outlets were reporting Jessica Chastain was asked to help fund her biological father's funeral. Another daughter of the father, Michael Monesterio, Nicole Monesterio vehemently denies she asked Jessica for money to help with the funeral. Michael Monesterio was 56 years old when he passed away.

    I'm sure she'd want this to remain private…

    Why keep up the pretext of their being ”sources” its bullcrap. You dont disavow someone without good reason especially a parent. There must be one

    If she never knew him, that's not her fault, it's his. You don't just decide to re-enter your child's life when they are an adult and expect them to love you or want to know you. Puh!

    This is such bull! This man didn't know his daughter because he was too busy being a rock star! Jessica owes nobody anything, and to those that think otherwise are seeking for other reasons (hence she is now a famous actress in the family). The "source" should be ashamed for telling lies…hope they can live with that. As for the rest of us…we will admire and hope great things for her from afar!
