Daddy woes

Kelly Rowland is coming clean about her troubled childhood and abusive father — and she is blasting those rumors that Matthew Knowles, the father of her dear friend and former bandmate Beyoncé Knowles, is her biological dad.

“My parents’ situation was so terrible … I don’t know where I would be if my real father was still in my life,” Rowland tells the summer issue of Vibe Vixen. “He hasn’t tried to find me and I have not tried to find him.” Rowland went to live with the Knowles family when she was eleven, but called rumors that Mr. Knowles is her real father, “a lie from the pit of hell.”

Rowland, however, says she’s somewhat mortified by her own failed trip to the altar. Her wedding to football star Roy Williams was called off — even though she was featured at the time on the cover of a bridal magazine. “I was so embarrassed,” she said. “I didn’t even want to go out of the house.”
