Stepping out for an evening with her gal pals, Kelly Rowland stopped by Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills on Tuesday evening (November 5).

The “X Factor” judge donned a stunning black dress with a pair of matching pumps as she showed off her pearly whites for the cameras.

Meanwhile, Kelly is dealing with family drama as her father Christospher Lovett begs for a relationship.

Lovett spoke to Star magazine about his estranged daughter, who he thinks was taken away from him by his former wife Doris when Kelly was only seven years old.

“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,” the 67-year-old stated. “I hoped I could make it up to her. But I’m still waiting for that day.”

While he struggled with money in the past, Christopher claims that trying to get close to the former Destiny Child singer is not for fame and fortune.

“I own a big home and have retired so I don’t want any of Kelly’s fortune, I just want her love. I just hope she doesn’t become such a big star in England on ‘X Factor’ that she forgets about her dad completely. 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,” he explained.

Although Miss Rowland hasn’t seen her father since the day she and her mother left, she said back in 2011 that she will eventually want to speak with him when she’s ready.
