7 Vixens With Strained Relationships With Their Dad

As most of us celebrate Father’s Day this weekend with our loving dads, not all Vixens will do the same. Not every girl had a dad to wipe her tears when a guy broke her heart, or teach her how to ride a bike. Take a look at 7 celebrities who have tremulous relationships with their fathers. —Terry Carter


Mrs. Carter once said she wanted her unborn son to be just like her dad, but things took a turn for the worst in 2011 when she abruptly fired her dad/manager of 16 years because of allegations of him stealing money from her. To add insult to injury, Mathew Knowles took a paternity test that proved he fathered an illegitimate child with another woman while he was still married to Bey's mother, Tina Knowles. Bey briefly spoke about their strained relationship in her documentary Life Is But A Dream. This past March, Mathew made a few remarks to The Sun that caused another rift within the family.

The Trinidadian rapper has been very open about her personal struggles. Nicki says that growing up with a very violent father who was addicted to drugs made her fear for her mother's life when he would threaten to kill her. "I wanted to kill him. I wished he was dead," she says of her father, Robert Maraj.

The Rated R singer confessed that her father Ronald Fenty would do drugs and abuse her mom when she was younger in her appearance on The Tyra Banks Show. She also recalled how she would suffer from massive migraines because of the stress her dad caused. There were reports that RiRi was upset about her dad speaking to the media about her tumultuous relationship with Chris Brown after their abusive relationship came to light.

Adele has experienced heartbreak from many men in her life, including her dad, Mark Evans. Mark admits that his alcoholism caused a rift between he and his daughter. "It's like I'm dead to her," he told the UK's Daily Mail. Adele says she tried to form a relationship with her dad, but things didn't turn out in her favor. She told Vogue Magazine: "I was actually ready to start trying to have a relationship with him. He's f**king blown it. He will never hear from me again." So far, there has been no reconciliation between the two.

Oprah with father


Even the Queen of Daytime talk couldn't escape the nasty rumors her father, Vernon Winfrey, disclosed about her being a disobedient child, lying about her molestation claims and having a lesbian relationship with her best friend, Gayle King. Oprah handled the situation with class (as usual) and didn't feed into the unauthorized biography book being written to expose her.

Believe it or not, the 'I Kissed A Girl' pop star was raised in a very religious household. That would explain why her father, Keith Hudson, claimed that his provocative daughter is "the devils child" during one of his recent sermons. Katy has addressed how hard it was to be raised by her religious family growing up in her 2012 documentary but she didn't have anything to say about her dad's blasphemous claims.

The X Factor judge has no intentions to make nice with her dad, Patrick Lovato. Patrick pleaded with his daughter to make amends with him before he went into surgery for cancer, but Demi was not ready to talk. Instead, she decided to let out her frustrations with her dad on a song off her album Unbroken entitled 'For the Love of a Daughter'. In the song, Demi sings “It’s been five years since we've spoken last/ And you can't take back what we never had."

Tinashe Resurfaces With Exciting Message: "I'm Back And Better"

Tinashe fans rejoice! After a hiatus, the Joyride artist resurfaced on Instagram Saturday (Sept. 28), in a brief video expressing that she's “back and better.”

After a tumultuous relationship with her label RCA, the singer-songwriter broke ties with the company. Since then, she's been hibernating in her “cave,” as she puts it.

"Creatively, I just feel like I needed to go through what I went through in order to be the person that I am today and to get back to my roots," she explained. "You pretty much put your heart and soul and emotions into all these songs and then you put them out there for the world to judge and tear down and pick apart. It's terrifying and it can really mess with your head."

In an interview with VIBE, Tinashe expressed how important it is for her to stay true to herself and artistry. “It’s not even necessarily speaking up but coming to your own conclusions yourself and owning your own instincts and trusting in yourself and creative power,” she said. “I think that’s something that is always important to continue to maintain. It’s easy for that sometimes to get derailed, and it’s important to come back to that.”

During her recent statement, she broke down the importance of art and how it should be expressed through individuality and free expression, sans any boxes or limitations. Making people happy through her music is the goal.

"Music and art are supposed to be these wonderful beautiful things that bring people joy and happiness, and that's really why I started making music in the first place—to give people something that means something to them,” she said.

Although Tinashe did not say when fans can expect new music, she did share a snippet of what she’s been working on in the studio in a separate post. “I’m too emotional.”

Eva Marcille Gives Birth To Third Child

In late September, Eva Marcille gave birth to her third child, a boy, Essence reports. The model/actress announced she was expecting in May, over a year after she gave birth to her second baby and first child with husband Michael Sterling. Their son, Michael Todd Jr. is 17 months while Marcille's first child, Marly Rae, 5, is from a previous relationship.

In a 2016 interview with Rolling Out, Marcille discussed the importance of having a close network of supporters to help in raising a child. "You know, I have a great mother myself and if it wasn’t for my mom and my support system—my friends that helped me out—I don’t know what I would do, honestly," she said. "It’s a balancing act and you know they say 'it takes a village to raise a child,' I have definitely cultivated my village to raise my child."

A year ago, the couple tied the knot which was showcased on Bravo's hit reality television program Real Housewives of Atlanta. The series is set to return in November.
