Kelly Rowland's Estranged Father Reaches Out For Reconciliation

The former Destiny's Child star has not seen her dad Christopher since she was a child after her mother left him.

Rowland has previously said about her father, "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."

Now Christopher has appealed to Rowland for a reconciliation, saying, "Kelly, I love you with all my heart. Please forgive me and let me be your dad again."

He tells Britain's Sunday Mirror newspaper, "No parent should scream and shout in front of their child, and I am sorry to say there were too many times to ­mention that Kelly heard me ­screaming abuse at her mother. Sometimes she would run to her ­bedroom screaming, others she would cling to my trouser leg begging me to stop."

Christopher attended a Destiny's Child concert in 2000 in the hope of meeting his daughter, and even has a bedroom saved for her at his home in the hope they will one day be reunited.

He adds, "I sat for the whole concert in one of the cheap seats at the back with tears of joy and utter despair ­rolling down my face. I wrote a note and begged a security guard to pass it to her. It said, 'Darling I have been looking for you. I am so proud of you and I love you so much and I just long to tell you that in ­person. Love Dad'. But no matter how much I begged the guard he would not believe I was her father.

"I own a big home now and have retired so I don't want any of Kelly's fortune, I just want her love. I'm getting old now - I just hope she reads this and doesn't leave getting back in touch with me before it is too late."

This is really touching, please Kelly reach out to your father.
