Not too long ago Kelly Rowland‘s father Christopher Lovett sat down with UK Mirror and explained how he have been looking for his daughter for 13 years. He mentions how past events of him yelling and shouting at Kelly’s mom Doris damaged the family, due to his frustration of losing his job. Lovett turned to alcohol to fade the pain away, not knowing that he would not see his daughter and wife ever again.
“I am a proud man and wanted the best for my family so when I lost my job I was utterly ashamed and hid from that shame with drink. When Doris challenged me, I would just lose it. 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 me to stop. When the electricity was cut off and we received an eviction letter we agreed for Doris to take Kelly to her aunt’s house while I sorted things out.”
Lovett shares a story about begged a security guard to forward a letter to Kelly Rowland at a Destiny’s Child concert but was denied because the guard did not believe he was really her father. “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.”
The 65-year-old heartbroken dad concluded his wishes to reunite with Kelly Rowland by saying he’s getting older, and hopes that she hears about the interview and forgives him before it’s too late. He also made it clear that he doesn’t want Kelly’s fortune. He just wants her daughterly love.
