He told the publication to pass on the message "I love you with all my heart" to his relative and claims he has been trying to get in touch with her for a long time now.
“Whenever [Destiny's Child] was on the cover of a magazine, I would call and beg them to tell her I was looking for her,” he shared.

“I don’t know where he is but I hope he’s not dead. That would break my heart," she said.
“I remember my dad being drunk and aggressive towards my mom but not me. I don’t know if he knows who I am or what I’ve done. He must be hiding under a rock if he doesn’t.”
