The father of Sarah Michelle Gellar has hit back at her claims he walked out on her. The gorgeous star disowns her father, crediting her successful life to her courageous and selfless mother. But her heartbroken father Arthur Gellar simply wants his daughter to call him "Dad" and smile at him once more. Arthur, who hasn't spoken to Sarah since she was 13-years-old, says he was struggling with depression and to provide for his wife and child. He claims when Sarah was eight her mother, Rosellen, insisted on taking the young starlet to acting auditions - refusing to find a job to help Arthur with the mortgage payments. Arthur says he felt like he had the weight of the world on his shoulders. A few months later Rosellen filed for divorce. Arthur strenuously states that Rosellen was the instigator in the divorce proceedings and is deeply hurt by Sarah's claims that he walked out on them both. He says, "We weren't well off but I tried to my best for my wife and my only child."
