‘Seeing Misha on the X Factor makes me proud’

LETTER: Misha B's estranged mother wants a reunion

THE ESTRANGED mother of X Factor contestant Misha B says she wants nothing more than a reunion with the star.

Florence Bryan, a reformed heroin addict, has written an open letter to the 19-year-old saying she's sorry for leaving the youngster her with her sister when she was only three months old.

In her letter, published in Now magazine, Bryan says: “When I heard you say on The X Factor that you didn’t know your real mum, or why she abandoned you, I felt all the heartbreak from when I parted with you 19 years ago come flooding back.

“It was the hardest decision of my life. As a mother I wanted the best for you, and at the time I felt I couldn’t give you what you deserved. I didn’t think it would be forever and I was thankful to Lil for caring for you. I never thought that you’d call her your mum. I always wanted to play a big part in your life.”

Bryan, who has been clean for three years, admitted that her 19-year addition, at one point, landed her in jail.

She wrote: “I spent 21 months in prison and when I came out, I was off drugs. When I came to see you, you were calling my sister Mum.

“I’d beg friends and family for news of how you were. And I never, ever stopped loving you. People told me what a wonderful, talented woman you were growing into and my heart would burst with pride.

“When I first saw you on The X Factor I think I was the proudest person on earth. It was overwhelming. I’ve seen and recorded every single show. I watch some back up to 17 times a day,” Bryan continued.

Last week Misha told the Sunday Mirror that she only considered her aunty Lil as her mother, although she would welcome a reunion with her biological mother in her own time.

She said: "Maybe I will get in touch one day, but only when I'm ready.

“The way I look at it, a person might be able to give birth but that doesn't make them a mother. The only person I ever needed was my auntie. She was ­mother and a father to me.”

The teen is yet to make an official comment on her biological mother’s letter.
