Meg Ryan’s fam­ily feud

The star’s es­tranged fam­ily just want her to end their feud

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Contents -

Ru­mour has it, Meg Ryan is plan­ning her wed­ding to long-time part­ner John Mel­len­camp. But the ac­tress’ side of the guest list is look­ing pretty light on, with fam­ily mem­bers re­veal­ing she’s still cut­ting her­self off from them in a 27-year-long feud.

“I fol­low in the paper what’s go­ing on with Meg,” her 80-yearold fa­ther Harry says of be­ing es­tranged from his fa­mous daugh­ter. “Is she back with John Mel­len­camp? It would be won­der­ful [if they got mar­ried].”

The rift be­tween the 56-yearold rom-com star and her fam­ily is so wide, Harry did not even know the name of his 13-year-old grand­daugh­ter Daisy!

The bit­ter fam­ily feud started in the early ’90s, when Meg’s mother Su­san Jor­dan and older sis­ter Dana took is­sue with her then-hus­band ac­tor Den­nis Quaid’s drug use.

Meg re­mained at war with her fam­ily even af­ter she di­vorced Den­nis in 2001, but now they’re hop­ing she’s fi­nally ready to for­give and for­get.

A far cry from the world of Hol­ly­wood, Meg’s sis­ter Dana, 57, earns just a few hun­dred dol­lars a week work­ing at a su­per­mar­ket on the op­po­site side of the US

‘I fol­low in the paper what’s go­ing on with Meg’

in Mas­sachusetts, while her younger sis­ter An­nie, 51, is strug­gling with health is­sues.

“An­nie’s had a prob­lem with her heart and she has some hip prob­lems, so she’s dis­abled,” Harry says. “She’s get­ting di­vorced and she’s liv­ing with a friend. It’s kind of dif­fi­cult.”

But the most strained re­la­tion­ship is be­tween Meg and her mother, who re­port­edly started grow­ing apart when Su­san di­vorced Harry in 1976.

Meg didn’t in­vite her mum to her first wed­ding, and a re­gret­ful Su­san doesn’t think she’ll be wel­comed in to her daugh­ter’s life again any­time soon. “I haven’t seen my daugh­ter since 1989,” she says.
