The DARK SIDE OF THE MOON musician walked out on his family to live with new love PRICILLA PHILLIPS in 1992 - and India decided to take responsibility for herself by leaving too.
The 26-year-old says, "Whatever anyone says, divorce is the most horrific thing for a child. Everybody ends up a victim. My mother was beside herself, my brother didn't know what to do and I just didn't know how to cope.
"I felt lost, abandoned, frightened, vulnerable. As a child you have absolutely no control. I wanted to take control, so I left the house like my dad. From that moment on I needed to make all the decisions in my life.
"When my dad left it felt like everything had broken into pieces. I had this overwhelming feeling of being on my own. I desperately craved the safety of being part of a family, so I just needed to find a different sort of family of my own."26/01/2005 09:37
