Eddie Levert, 76, Has A 16 Year Old Daughter? He Tells Why She Gets Mad With Him
Who knew Eddie Levert (76) had a 16 year old daughter?!! I know I didn’t, but here’s the thing- Eddie’s actually been spotted out with his daughter a few times, but I automatically assumed she was his grandchild, but nope, she’s his little girl. Our man Eddie hasn’t slowed down one bit, if you know what I mean, LOL. He and his wife, Raquel, have been married since 2005 and they are the parents of 16 year old, Ryan Levert.
Eddie has a total of seven kids, including his beloved sons- the late Gerald and Sean Levert, but many folks didn’t know Eddie had any other kids, other than Sean and Gerald.
Well among his remaining five children, there is some drama that he says goes do between he and them sometimes, but first the good news- The good news is that Eddie has a new CD coming out in the beginning of 2016 titled,“Did I Make You Go Ooh”out and he also recorded a song with his youngest child, Ryan, for his CD. The down side is that Eddie admitted that every time he works with one of his kids, there’s always some type of tension that gets stirred up in the family as a result.
Here is what he told Black America Web about this:
“If you don’t include everybody in the family, you get a lot of flack from these people. Everybody thinks they deserve to get paid, too, ” Eddie says. “You have all these people involved in their lives and Gerald’s lives and in his estate, you’ve got to clear everything so his kids can get paid for it. I’ve been catching heck. My daughter stopped speaking to me because I did the play, but her mom OK’ed the play so I thought it was OK to do it. Now they want to hang me. You know, B.B. King’s kids, James Brown’s kids, it just goes on and on.”
Eddie says, there’s a new generation of Levert performers. Eddie’s youngest daughter, now 16, is singing and performing as well.
“She’s preparing herself now. Her mom is doing everything she can to keep her down. She’s got the whole thing. She’s got whole attitude and the expressions and all of that. I just did a new CD, and we did a song called “Stupid People.” That’s her title. Me and her wrote it and I put it on my CD. We’re talking about how people are running around shooting each other and doing all these crazy things.”
It’s just like the old school saying goes: ‘The more money you get, the more problems you have,’ but I’m sure the tension will settle down soon between Eddie and his children. After losing two close loved ones, Sean and Gerald, they all probably understand just how short and unpredictable life is, plus the Levert fam’ seems like a pretty tight knit unit who loves Eddie to the core and vice versa. So hopefully it’ll only be a matter of time before they’re hugging and loving each other again at a family get-together, while The O’Jays’ “Family Reunion” plays in the background.
