Kelly Rowland's Father Seeks To Reconcile

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.

He continues,

“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.”

Should Kelly Rowland reconcile with her father?
