SIDNEY, AU. (THECOUNT) — Bindi Irwin celebrated Father’s Day by showing love to three men she calls the pillars in her life, her late father Steve, her husband, Chandler and father-in-law Chris. Who she didn’t include, at least in her well-wishes, was her own grandfather, Bob.

Bindi posted the following loving tribute on Sunday:


“Appreciation post for the three most incredible fathers in my life. My dad, my husband and my father-in-law. My dad taught me the importance of strength when standing up for what I believe in and to have empathy for all living beings. My husband amazes me every day with his kind and steadfast heart, his love for our daughter is infinite. My father-in-law works tirelessly for his family and is always there with a word of encouragement. These extraordinary men inspire me and I love them so very much.”

Bindi then drew the shade on her grandfather for what she calls an “abusive relationship,” saying he has shown “no interest” in her or her family.

Bindi did not hold back..

“He has returned gifts I’ve sent him after he opened them, he has ignored my correspondence and from the time I was a little girl he has ignored me, preferring to spend time doing anything else rather than being with me.”

And, it got even more heartbreaking … “He has never said a single kind word to me personally,” adding, “It breaks my heart but it is not healthy to engage in an abusive relationship.”

She says her mom, Terri, has persisted, trying to make their relationship with Bob work … even sending him Xmas gifts, but they have been met with silence, according to TMZ.

The last time the pair were photographed together was in 2007, at a memorial for Steve, Bob’s son.

“I have struggled with this relationship my entire life and it brings me enormous pain,” Bindi lamented.

Bindi added that the family has financially supported 81-year-old Bob for nearly 3 decades.
