Kelly Rowland’s Estranged Father Wants To Reconnect
Ellisha Rader Mannering
Kelly Rowland hasn’t seen her father Christopher Lovett in years, but the two may be reunited soon. Lovett is 67 years old and hasn’t seen Kelly since she was 7. He says he is ready to reestablish a relationship before it is too late. Lovett was an alcoholic during Kelly’s childhood and her mother left him because of his bad habit.
Lovett said, “I couldn’t control it. I hoped I could make it up to her. But I’m still waiting for that day.”
Lovett claims that he has tried to contact his daughter over the years but has not been successful. He said that he would often see her on TV or on the cover of magazines and contact the publishers hoping to make contact with Kelly. He has since recovered from his alcoholism and is hoping to get to know his daughter and make up for the years they have lost.
“So many previous years have passed and I’m getting old,” he said. “I just pray she comes back into my life before it’s too late.”
Kelly is now 32 years old and has said she would be interested in meeting her dad one day.
“I do have a desire to speak to him. But I have to be ready when I make that decision, and I don’t want to hurry myself. I’ve been without him for more than 20 years,” she said.
Kelly is still working on her career and hoping to regain her popularity. She has not said if and when she will meet her father or how she felt about his previous attempts to contact her.
