Although Jack Nicholson keeps his personal affairs secret, it is also known that he and his daughter, Tessa Gourin, do not get along at all.

Actress Rebecca Broussard, a former girlfriend of Nicholson, gave birth to their daughter in 1990. Nicholson was not present at the birth. Tessa Gourin grew estranged from her father. She revealed that she hadn’t spoken to her father in years and that their relationship was “non-existent” in an interview with Vanity Fair in 2013.

Over the years, there have been rumors that Nicholson tried to contact his daughter, but it is unknown if those efforts were successful.

Nicholson has five children and has been more open about his relationships with the other children. His daughter, Lorraine Nicholson, is also an actress and his son, Raymond Nicholson, followed in his father’s footsteps by becoming an actor.

In a recent interview, Gourin opened up about her experiences to “The Daily Beast” and said that since she was a toddler, her mother, Jennine Gourin, had warned her not to tell anyone that she had this famous dad.

“I knew he was powerful, but somehow I equated my life with that of orphan Annie,” she said.

Gourin told the magazine that the actor was not interested in having any kind of relationship with her when she was a little girl. She said she paid for her education, but declined to elaborate.

“When you’re a kid, you don’t have a choice about where you’re going to go. I don’t know this person very well.”
