For all the rumors that Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles is actually Kelly’s biological as well, Kelly, who rarely uses profanity has this to say: ‘It’s a lie from the pit of hell.’ Rowland’s mother, Doris Garrison, describes Kelly’s father as an abuser. Garrison told Vibe Vixen magazine, ‘He didn’t provide for us. He was abusive to me–verbally, mentally, physically, all of it.’ Kelly says, “My parents’ situation was so terrible. I don’t know where I would be if my real father was still in my life. He hasn’t tried to find me and I have not tried to find him.”(via email, original source unknown)
Kelly Rowland Is Pissed!
Kelandria almost had to take her wig and “air-rangs” off after hearing reports that
the new millenium Joe Jackson Matthew Knowles is her Pops.
Kelly Rowland has lashed out at reports she shares a biological father with her former Destiny’s Child bandmate Beyonce Knowles. The Survivor singer lived with the Knowles family from the age of eleven after her home life fell apart. When Rowland’s mother, Doris Garrison, lost her job as pharmacy tech, she asked Matthew and Tina Knowles if they could take care of Kelly until she got back on her feet. By all accounts, Doris was still around. She had a key to the Knowles home and would come by to check Kelly’s homework and cook. Doris also spent weekends and holidays there and attended church with the Knowleses.
Eventually, what began as an emergency plan evolved into a permanent living arrangement. “It just kind of happened,” says Kelly. “I stayed with the Knowleses for a summer. A summer turned into a year, a year turned into three years, and three years turned into 10. * I was very happy. People look at that whole situation and don’t understand. But everybody has a different way of growing up. I was okay because when I came into their home, the Knowleses made me feel like I was one of their own kids. I felt lucky to have three parents instead of just one.”
* Remind me never to invite her ass over for dinner.
