*Sometimes it only takes something small to help someone realize they haven’t quite dealt with some deep seeded issues. That reality was brought to face for Kelly Rowland when she broke down at the sight of a photo of her estranged father whom she hasn’t seen since she was 8-years-old.

She told Marie Claire U.K. that she actually hid in her “X Factor” dressing room and broke down in tears after accidently finding her dad’s photo.

“A couple of weeks ago, I was reading through a magazine and I saw a picture of him. I didn’t even know who it was until I read the caption. I completely lost it,” the 30-year-old former Destiny’s Child member revealed.

She confessed that she didn’t know that her feelings were still so strong.

“My camp saw me disappear into the bathroom and they were like, ‘What happened?’ I didn’t know there was so much emotion still there. You close so many different things of your life, and I like to shut them off and keep moving. But, in that moment, it just sucked everything out of me and I cried so hard,” Rowland recalled.
