Kelly Rowland’s Father Reaches out to Runite

Rowland, who is currently judging Simon Cowell’s U.K. X-Factor, has reportedly not seen her biological father Christopher Lovett since she was seven years old. Now Lovett, 65, hopes to change that and sat down for an interview with Britain’s The Daily Mirror where he spoke on his failed relationship with his daughter.

Choking back tears he told The Mirror“Kelly, I love you with all my heart. Please forgive me and let me be your dad again.”According to Lovett, he failed to provide for his family, had a drinking problem and a ‘vicious temper’ that tore his ­family apart

While Rowland hasn’t had contact with him in over two decades, she previously spoke of her father in an interview saying, “I don’t know where he is but I hope he’s not dead. That would break my heart. I remember my dad being drunk and aggressive towards my mom but not me. I don’t know if he knows who I am or what I’ve done. He must be hiding under a rock if he doesn’t.”

Lovett also made sure to add that he’s not after his celebrity daughter’s money, but just wants to be in her life during his old age.”I own a big home now and have retired so I don’t want any of Kelly’s fortune, I just want her love”
