Kelly Rowland’s Father Wants To Be In Her Life After 13 Years
As far as we knew it, Kelly Rowland grew up with Beyonce’s family. Little did we know that her father was an alcoholic and abusive towards her mother. Christopher Lovett hasn’t seen Kelly in thirteen, but is now making the effort to catch up with his daughter. He tells UK Magazine Mirror:
“Kelly, I love you with all my heart. Please forgive me and let me be your dad again.[...]“I loved her from the moment she took her first breath. I remember as clear as day Kelly and I singing together, from the moment she could talk. Our favorite songs were by Stevie Wonder.
I would put one headphone in my ear and the other in hers and we would sing and sing, so happy to be together. But then I lost my job at a transportation company, sank into a depression about money and began drinking more and more. The failure to provide for my family fueled an anger that I will be ashamed of until my dying day. It wasn’t physical between me and Kelly’s mom, but there were many days and nights when Kelly would be bawling her eyes out, clutching my leg begging me, ‘Please daddy stop shouting at mummy’. That image of her howling, begging me to stop will haunt me forever. I really hoped I would get to make it up to her. Sadly I am still waiting for that day. But I can’t give up hope. That’s why there is a room in my house which I have decorated especially for Kelly, just in case she comes through the front door.”
