Who are Lytrell Bundy’s Parents?
Lytrell Bundy was born on 26th November 1980, in Tappahannock, Virginia. She is an American by nationality and belongs to the African-American ethnicity.
She is the daughter of Joyce Hawkins and Clinton Brown. Her mother was a daycare center director while her father was a corrections officer at a local jail. Bundy’s brother Chris Brown was born on May 5th, 1989.
While Lytrell was still young her mom and dad went their separate ways. Joyce later remarried Donnelle Hawkins.
Lytrell’s Relationship with Her Stepfather
Bundy and Chris didn’t have a good connection with their stepfather, Donnelle. Chris said that Hawkins used to beat his mom. He even once witnessed his mother bleeding from her nose.
The singer told in an interview with GIANT magazine about his stepdad’s violent behavior,
He used to hit my mom… He made me terrified all the time. I remember one night he made her nose bleed. I was crying and thinking, ‘I’m just gonna go crazy on him one day…’ I hate him to this day.
Donnelle once shot himself in the eye during an altercation one day which resulted in him being blind in one eye.
Their stepdad Hawkins, on the other hand, never admitted the claim and said in response,
“I never raised a hand at his mom. We (Brown’s mother and I) argued frequently… As far as physical abuse there was no physical abuse.”
He also claimed that Brown wasn’t happy at his parents’ separation which resulted in Chris hating his step-dad.
“I became the bad guy. Chris was really mad at his mom for leaving his dad, so I became the scapegoat.”
Donnelle still claims he tried his best to be a father figure but nothing worked.
To this day, Lytrell and Brown were never on good terms with Hawkins.
