Kel Mitchell’s daughter Allure blasts him for being an absentee father

Kel Mitchell’s daughter Allure is claiming the actor was an absentee father for more than a decade of her life.
The 21-year-old shared a series of videos to TikTok, alleging that the “Kenan & Kel” alum only supported her financially — and not emotionally.
“I guess ten years without your children could do this to you,” she captioned a post on her private TikTok account, according to screenshots obtained by Hollywood Unlocked.
“I am done being silenced. My father is the type of man to fake as if he’s in my life but he’s not. He was there financially.”
Allure added that Mitchell “only paid for what in my eyes looked good on paper,” including her first car, high school tuition and campus housing.
The “Ganked” actress said she is now living “independently without any parental help” to prove to her father that money was never what she needed.
“But then I have to remember he doesn’t even know me, how could he?” she continued. “He wasn’t there. A father should also be there emotionally. A father should be there for their daughters in need. A father should provide. A father should just simply care.”
Allure said that she was, at one point, “homeless in college” and claimed that Mitchell did not open his home to her. Instead, she said he purchased a dorm on campus for her to stay in.
Additionally, Allure claims that the “Good Burger” actor would not provide medical insurance “out of fear” that it will be used by her mother, Tyisha Hampton, whom Mitchell divorced in 2005.
“He lives in this delusional world that my mother is ‘out to get him’ no she’s out to get what’s owed to her,” Allure added. “You owe my mother so much. While you got to live your greatest life for ten years without us, building your career and selling the house your ex wife and your children were living in.”
Allure shared that she chose to become a lawyer after watching her mother “research law to help her keep our house over our head.”
“In the end she lost and we were without a home, still without a home,” she concluded. “Yet Kel Mitchell, my father, gets to live in a five bedroom house in the valley. Yet in his eyes I’m ungrateful. I never cared about your money. I just needed my dad.”
Page Six has reached out to Mitchell’s reps for comment but has not yet heard back.
Mitchell is also dad to son Lyric, 23, with Hampton, and daughter Wisdom, 5, and son Honor, 2, whom he shares with his wife, Asia Lee.
The Nickelodeon star is currently battling Hampton in court, with her seeking $1.2 million in back spousal and child support.
