  • Tom Jones is a good singer, but allegedly a bad father

It’s not unusual to be loved by 250 women in one year -- it happens every day when you are Tom Jones. Unfortunately the odds were that a love child would rise from the detritus, and rise he has.

Jon Berkery, 24, says the rejection he got from his famous father led to his drug dealing, homelessness and love of guns. “It all goes back to my dad,” he told theUK’s Sun. “I was one angry kid, crying out for a father.”

Berkery now goes under the name Jon Jones and is pursuing a singing career inNorth Carolina. Oops, another bad life decision, Jon. Berkery’s mom reached a support settlement with Tom Jones in 1989, adding, “I think he is a disgusting human being.” She’s a lady!
