Her online bio has cited him as a former farm-owner, but now it’s been revealed that Margot Robbie's dad is in fact sugarcane tycoon, Doug Robbie.

According to New Idea magazine, the 26-year-old’s father is a “rich and powerful property and sugarcane tycoon” living in the Gold Coast, and left the actress and her three siblings when they were younger.

“Anya [Margot’s sister] and Margot don’t want to know him,” a source told the magazine. "Anya will let him see his grandson Sebby [now nine years old] every now and then, but she's not bothered about seeing him."

While he reportedly paid for Margot and her siblings - Cameron, Lachlan and Anya - to attend privates schools, it's claimed his kids went weeks without speaking to him.

"He put them through private school at Somerset College, but he could never give them the time and attention as he was never at home," says the insider.

"They never got a chance to be that close. He gave them money insider. He'd be inconsistent, weeks would go by without a call or visit, then he'd ring out of the blue."

But it appears Margot’s brother Lachlan ‘Lockie’ Robiie still has a relationship with his father.

In a post on his Instagram, he captioned a snap of himself with his dad: “Happy Father's Day to this old boy. Might not have the normal family but you did give an education and help when I needed it.”

In an interview with The Sun in March, Margot revealed: “I’m not like him at all.”

Whereas in an interview with GQ in 2014, the Wolf of Wall Street star said of her mum Sarie Kessler: “My mum is the sweetest person on the Earth, and if I turned into her, I wouldn’t be that upset at all; in fact, it would be an honour.”

And according to the Daily Mail, the only movie of his daughter’s Doug likes on his Facebook page is her 2014 movie Focus starring Will Smith. But the insider told New Idea, he went to a local café to watch his daughter on TV at the Oscars this year.
