Phoebe Bridgers is announcing the death of her father

Phoebe Bridgers has announced the death of her father.

The ‘Punisher’ singer-songwriter shared an old picture of herself with her late father on Instagram yesterday (January 3): “Rest in peace, dad,” she captioned the post.

Bridgers, whose parents divorced when she was 20, did not share more information about her cause of death.

The Los Angeles artist has spoken many times about her complicated relationship with her father. During an interview with GQ in 2019, Bridgers said he had a “drug thing” and claimed he had a history of being abusive.

At the end of 2020, the musician revealed in a conversation with The Line Of Best Fit that he started talking to his estranged father – who was a stage carpenter – during the COVID-19 lockdown. “It’s strange, but it’s very nice,” he said.

Bridgers’ 2020 single ‘Kyoto’ refers to a time when her father told the artist he was “getting sober”, adding: “And you wrote me a letter / But I don’t need to read it.”

The song continues: “I don’t want to forgive you / But please don’t hold it back from me / Born under the Scorpio sky / I wanted to see the world / Through your eyes until it was gone.”

Although her father did not discuss the song’s meaning, he said he wanted to “take some responsibility” for their strained relationship when the single was nominated for a Grammy.

Referring to the line from ‘Kyoto’ “I’m going to kill you / If you don’t hit me,” Amelia Dimoldenberg recently asked Bridgers during an episode of Chicken Shop Date if he still wanted to kill his father. “No,” replied the singer.

In a previous interview with NPR, Bridgers described her relationship with her father as “a very strange combination of emotional unavailability, but very present in a strange way.”
