Bob Dylan to skip daughter`s wedding

New York: Folk icon Bob Dylan will not attend his gay daughter`s upcoming wedding, according to her future mother-in-law.

Desiree Dennis-Dylan, the singer-songwriter`s daughter with former backing singer and ex-wife Carolyn Dennis, is set to marry her partner Kayla Sampson next year, but the rocker won`t be there to walk her down the aisle, reported New York Daily News online.

Sampson`s mother Jolene said, "Of course he is invited, but he is just not going to go. He didn`t say that, but that`s what we are assuming.

"It would be sad (if Dylan doesn`t attend), but he is really supportive and happy for her."

Desiree`s existence only came to light in 2001 after a biography by Howard Sounes revealed she was born in 1986. Dennis later explained she and Dylan had decided to keep the birth a secret to give her a normal childhood.

Dylan and Dennis divorced in 1992.
