Kelly Rowland‘s father, Christoper Lovett is seeking to reconcile with his now famous daughter. The new X-Factor judge (pictured at the X-Factor auditions in Manchester) lost contact with her father at the age of 7 when the family was evicted from their home.
Christopher Lovett, now 65, is trying again after many failed attempts and a renewed life after alcoholism to reconcile with Kelly. Christoper tells the Sunday Mirror about his attempt to contact Kelly after a Destiny’s Child concert in 2000,
“I sat for the whole concert in one of the cheap seats at the back with tears of joy and utter despair rolling down my face. I wrote a note and begged a security guard to pass it to her. It said, ‘Darling I have been looking for you. I am so proud of you and I love you so much and I just long to tell you that in person. Love Dad’. But no matter how much I begged the guard he would not believe I was her father.
“No parent should scream and shout in front of their child, and I am sorry to say there were too many times to mention that Kelly heard me screaming abuse at her mother. Sometimes she would run to her bedroom screaming, others she would cling to my trouser leg begging abe to stop.”
Christopher insist that he’s not reaching out to Kelly because she’s famous,
“I own a big home now and have retired so I don’t want any of Kelly’s fortune, I just want her love. I’m getting old now – I just hope she reads this and doesn’t leave getting back in touch with me before it is too late.”
