Kelly Rowland’s Estranged Dad Wants Her Back

But for her father Christopher Lovett, watching the hit ITV1 show will stir a very different emotion – bitter regret at the shocking behaviour that cost him the chance to see her grow up.

Christopher, who has not seen Kelly, 30, since she was seven, chokes back tears as he pleads:

“Kelly, I love you with all my heart. Please forgive me and let me be your dad again.”

He admits his failure to provide for his family, a drink problem and a vicious temper tore his family apart. But he still idolises his daughter, and treasures the memories of their time together.

Christopher, 65, says: “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 favourite 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 fuelled an anger that I will be ashamed of until my dying day.

“It wasn’t physical between me and Kelly’s mum, 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.”

    It’s never too late for them to have a relationship with one another but be careful Kelly watch your wallet girl…make sure he’s no Joe Odem always begging for something.

    Doesn’t the timing of this story make you just a little suspicious? He’s supposedly now coming around when she has a charting single, and her CD is about to drop? And more importantly, she’s now being outshown by Nicole Scherzinger, who now has a currently chart-rising single, and who has just been named as her fellow X-Factor judge?

    Freddy, this story is contrived and fraudulent. This story is PR-Spin – at its best. This supposed story was concocted, and now floated, to have us feel sorry for 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland just BEFORE her CD is to be released! 30-something-year-old Kelly Rowland is NOW taking a page out of the “Kardashian-PR-SPIN play book!”

    Shoot. I don’t have Sh- – and my dad can go kick rocks somewhere. Sometimes it’s too late. My dad never did nothing for me and he don’t have nothing coming. However, to each it’s own. Good luck Kelly.

    NEGRO PLEASE! You should have been looking for her before she became a celebrity LOSER!

    My question why now? Why didn’t he reach out before she became a celeb, why couldn’t he seek her out when she needed him the most. This is a lesson learned – men stop making kid/kids if you don’t want them because you never know what they may become and then you look stupid standing in line to see them like their fans.

  6. He need to a shame of his self as a black man or as any man period no offence he sound like another deadbeat father that I remember very well from the past.That shaq o’neal’s biological father who pleaded and begged please give me a chance and when that did not work he used some of the family members to get his attention and shaq stiill did not reach out and never did.His father was another one that was there because of his money and so is Lamar Odom’s father & Labron James father and it’s the same way with a lot of dead beat parents when the child makes it all of a sudden you they want to appear and be a parent and it does not work that way all the time.There is still to much pain a lot of unanswered questions and unforgiveness so it’s not easy to just come along finally after being away for so long leaving behind burdens and broken hearts and think you can just rightfully take your place in that child’s life again no in deed that place has to be slowly earned and it’s called trust.So my advice to Kelly Rowland or not just a celebrity this can go for anyone that has been with out a mother or father in your life and yes circumstances and situation’s do happen however.It is important to seek God in prayer for his full guidance and counseling is a good thing also we dont want to spend our life holding grudges and hatedred because at the end of the day it’s pointless.So begin to walk by faith in your healing gradually and then eventually you will come to a divine place of forgiveness and trust so just allow things to flow in it’s appointed time then just maybe things will begin to be better.So my thoughts and prayers goes out to anyone who is struggling with building a long lost relationship with that someone special in their life.I urge to give it over totally to God and he will defiantly guide your heart and direct your footsteps down that path of hope and new beginings.Best wishes to any viewer who happen to read this message may it be a blessing to you and will allow you to open your heart to trust again and as well as allow your spirit to forgive and then your soul will truly heal.

  7. Also If i may add it should never take any parent to bein there child’s life when they become famous and wealthy.If they never make it into fame and fortune your responsibilities as a parent never changes and besides your child needs you so let that be something to ponder on be a parent or don’t choose to have unprotected sex simply as that please be responsible.
