Man Appalled to Find Out Charles Manson Is His Father

November 23, 2009

California (ChattahBox) – When 41-year-old Matthew Roberts set out to find out about his biological parents, he never could have imagined what it was he would find.

Roberts had been adopted at birth, and had known it since he was eight years old. But his adopted father always refused to answer his questions about his parents, and who they might be.

Only now does the DJ understand why the truth was hidden from him.

Roberts is the child of Charles Manson, the notorious cult leader, and his mother is a member of his ‘Family’, who claims Manson raped her one night after she succumbed to his charisma.

“I didn’t want to believe it. I was frightened and angry. It’s like finding out that Adolf Hitler is your father. I’m a peaceful person – trapped in the face of a monster,” Roberts said of when he found out.

He was horribly depressed at first, finding himself unable to sleep or eat.

After awhile, he began to write Manson.

“He sends me weird stuff and always signs it with his swastika … I’m not nuts but I’ve got a little bit of it. It’s scary and upsetting. If I get worked up, my eyes get really big and that’s really freaked some people out before. I’ve tried to tone that down quite a bit. I don’t like having that effect on people.

“I don’t even like the fact that I’m big. It makes me even scarier. My hero is Gandhi. I’m an extremely non-violent, peaceful person and a vegetarian. I don’t even kill bugs. I’ve had long hair all my life. I could make it go away, but I can’t let the world and their fears change me.

“He’s my biological father – I can’t help but have some kind of emotional connection. That’s the hardest thing of all – feeling love for a monster who raped my mother. I don’t want to love him, but I don’t want to hate him either.”
