Urban One Honors w/ Mary J. Blige

Yesterday we told you that nearly two years have passed since X Factor star Kelly Rowland first revealed that she’s ready to reconcile with her estranged father, Christopher Lovett, who she says abandoned her during  childhood. Yet for some reason, that reunion has yet to occur. Christopher, however, is determined to reunite with Kelly. During a recent interview with Star Magazine, the 67-year-old revealed that he prays that he can be reunited with his daughter before his time runs out.

“So many previous years have passed and I’m getting old. I just pray she comes back into my life before it’s too late,” he said.

He also discussed his struggle with alcohol and shared that he verbally abused Kelly’s mom, Doris, in front of her.

“I couldn’t control it.”

Christopher went on to say that he really hopes that he is afforded with the opportunity to make it up to Kelly.

“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 said.

As for what he would tell his daughter if she were listening, “I love you with all my heart.” Just last month Kelly revealed that she’s not even sure why she hasn’t reunited with her Dad yet.

“I haven’t. 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,” she told ESSENCE.

What are your thoughts on Christopher’s attempts to contact Kelly through the media?
