*Kelly Rowland recently expressed a desire to reunite with her estranged father whom she hasn’t seen since her parents split up 20 years ago.

“I do have a desire to speak to him. But I have to be ready when I make that decision, and I don’t want to hurry myself. I’ve been without him for more than 20 years,” said Rowland, who was raised by her mom since age seven.

And while she contemplates he next move in life, the singer is still single and enjoying her life. While she’s loving the lack of relationship obligations, she’s also dating with the hopes of one day settling down.

“When I noticed myself starting to date a–hole guys, and unavailable guys, I changed that real quick,” she said.

Rowland is also gearing up for her role as a judge on the UK version of “The X Factor.”
