Varunie Vongsvirates, who dated the ‘Marmaduke’ star for 5 years before they split in 2018, says the actor has not had any contact with their daughter Lyla, though he maintains relationships with his two elder sons.
AceShowbiz –Owen Wilson‘s daughter Lyla recently turned 3 years old, but he has never met her even for once, so claimed the child’s mother. The actor’s former girlfriend Varunie Vongsvirates has slammed the 52-year-old for allegedly being an absent father to their child.
Varunie, who dated Owen for about five years before they broke up in 2018, told DailyMail.com that the “Wedding Crashers” star has never had any contact with Lyla, though he maintains relationships with his two elder sons. “He has never met her, unfortunately,” she told the news outlet, several days after she posted a birthday tribute to her daughter on Instagram.
In the image shared on Saturday, October 9, Lyla wore a straw hat and sported long blonde hair. Varunie captioned the snap, “Happy 3rd birthday to my wild child! I love you so much!!!!”
Previously in 2019, Varunie claimed she has begged her ex to get involved in their daughter’s life several times, but he apparently has no intention to do so. She said that the brother of Luke Wilson is “not involved at all” with their little girl.
The 37-year-old added that Owen only helped them financially, but nothing more. “He helps financially but it’s never been about that,” so she said at the time. She explained, “Lyla needs a father. It’s ironic how [Owen] keeps getting these father roles, he’s playing a father in his new movie, and he’s never met his own daughter.”
Varunie gave birth to her daughter Lyla on October 9, 2018 without Owen by her side. In the same year, the Academy Award-nominated actor took a paternity test that confirmed he’s the father of the little girl.
A source told Us Weekly a month later that Owen “refuses to meet his daughter.” The source added, “He even checked the no visitation box in court in June … He does not want to visit [and does not] want any custody of her.”
Owen is also a father to 10-year-old Robert, who is named after the “Wonder” actor’s father. He welcomed his eldest son with his then-girlfriend Jade Duell, from whom he reportedly split up in 2011. He shares his second child, 7-year-old Fin, with fitness trainer Caroline Lindqvist, whom he has struck up another romance with as of late.
