Charlotte Church opened up about the reason she “cut off ties” with her family when she was 16 years old.

Sharing candidly on Kate Garraway’s Life Story, the 35-year-old singer admitted that after she cut contact with her family, her mother suffered a nervous breakdown.

Charlotte revealed that she ran away from home after an argument with her mother Maria, who caught her smoking a cigarette.

“As far as I’m concerned, I need to be free. I have to have a specific path for a long time and all the normal ways that we develop and the way puberty and the way girls become. I became a strangled woman and I felt like I had to be a forever young, innocent little girl, and that’s not where, literally, biological life took me.

She told Kate: “I just need to cut ties. I’m at an age where I know everything, I know better. I know what I’m doing. They’re just trying to protect me but I see things. That’s when they were also holding me tight and so I just did what I felt I needed to do at the time.”

But Charlotte realizes the loss she has made in her life and turns to her estranged mother Maria, who owns a bed and breakfast.

“Only with hindsight did I know what that meant for my mom. It felt like they had completely lost me and this whole life that we built together, this that we’re all about. did together for the past four years, that’s gone,” she said.
