Deadbeat Dads: Kelly Rowland Dad Publicly Begs Her Back
Kelly Rowland hasn’t seen her father since her mom left him when Kelly was just seven years old. Back then, her father was an alcoholic who was abusive but now says he’s a changed man who just wants the opportunity to have a relationship with his daughter.

He tells Radar Online:
“So many previous years have passed and I’m getting old. [He’s 67] I just pray she comes back into my life before it’s too late.[…]I couldn’t control [the drinking and verbal abuse that Kelly witnessed]. I hoped I could make it up to her. But I’m still waiting for that day.
Whenever [Destiny’s Child] was on the cover of a magazine, I would call and beg them to tell her I was looking for her.
He also added:
It wasn’t physical between me and Kelly’s mom, 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 love you with all my heart”
In Essence’s September 2013 issue, Kelly revealed:
I haven’t [seen my father yet.] I don’t know what’s stopping me because I’ve had opportunities. But it really is time. I probably need to ask my therapist about it.
