Bindi Irwin looked gorgeous on the red carpet at the AACTA awards on Wednesday night and when asked about her strained relationship with her Grandfather, she didn’t hold back.
‘Everyone deals with grief differently,’ she said. ‘When my dad passed away he chose to distance himself from everything that dad loved the most.
‘At the moment we’re really just respecting his wishes because he hasn’t had anything to do with us for a long time and he decided his own path. That’s important so good for him.’
Bindi claims her Grandfather has even rejected gifts sent to him by the family.
‘There was one year where we sent birthday presents to him and he opened them up and he sent them back,’ she recalled.
‘With things like that you realise that people need to deal with grief how they need to deal with grief and as long as it doesn’t hurt yourself or hurt those around you then that’s the way to go.’
