In an interview with Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper, Domingo, 60, said:
``I am hurt for my family and of course I am not happy about it.''
Granddaughter Ivonne is the daughter of his son Jose, from the singer's first
early marriage at the age of 16.
``I haven't seen the pictures because that would be the last thing I could
do,'' the famed tenor told the newspaper.
``I just wish her well and hope that she will be happy. She has chosen to do
this; it is her own choice.''
The singer also said that his long career is approaching its end.
``If my career was an aeroplane flight, there is no doubt I am coming down to
land,'' he said.
``Maybe I could sing another four, five years. The maximum would be when I am
65, which will be the year 2006.''
