Weller's son: I'm bisexual ...telling my dad was hard.
Byline: SIMON BOYLE Showbiz Editor
PAUL Weller's son Nathaniel has come out as bisexual to his dad, and says: "He's got no problem with it at all."
Nathaniel, 26, said the former The Jam frontman's macho Modfather image made him nervous of broaching the subject.
But Paul - who also fronted The Style Council - told his musician son: "People are people no matter what they are, as long as they aren't hurting anyone." Nathaniel said he realised he was attracted to men as well as women when he was 17 but kept it quiet from his parents at first.
He told Attitude magazine: "It got difficult because his schtick is that working-class hero thing.
"The media see him as this alpha male character, even though The Style Council was pretty homoerotic. It was kind of daunting but there was nothing to really worry about."
