Who Are Cree Campbell Parents? Her Father Is West Coast Hip Hop Icon
Lecresha Campbell, better known as Cree Campbell, is an uprising entrepreneur, singer, and reality TV star. She is one of the newest members to join We TV’s reality show, Growing Up Hip Hop.
The TV show follows the lives of children of some hip-hop legends and depicts their relationship. And, as Cree is now a part of the show, the viewers will be able to witness Cree’s relationship with her parents.
Who Are Cree Campbell Parents? Family, Siblings
Born in 1990, Cree Campbell celebrates her birthday on the 11th of November every year. She is currently 30 years old, and her zodiac sign is Scorpio.
As for her parents, her mother’s name is Tina Lucas, and her father’s name is Luther Campbell, better known as Uncle Luke. Her father is an American rapper who is known for his tracks like “Me So H---y,” “Hoochie Mama,” and “Pop That P---y.”
Cree is one of the six children from Luke’s former relationships. Her parents didn’t have an ideal marital relationship, and there were a lot of differences. As a result, they eventually separated.
Later, on July 19, 2008, Luke tied the knot with a law school graduate named Kristin Thompson. From his marriage with Kristen, Luke has a child. Furthermore, in 2010, Cree’s mother, Tina Lucas, shared the wedding vows with Ted Lucas, Slip N’ Slide Records founder.
Cree’s Relationship with her Father
The Growing Up Hip Hop star Cree Campbell doesn’t have a great relationship with her father. Additionally, the daughter-father duo has a long history.
In the past, Cree had taken to her social media handles to describe her father, Luke, as a “deadbeat.” In addition to that, she also had made some serious allegations against her biological father.
In a since-deleted YouTube video, Cree alleged that her father used to beat her mother and might have even shot her mother in the leg. She continued as she stated that he used to beat down her mother so much that she could barely walk and move. Likewise, she said that her father had kicked her and her mother out of the house when she was only 3 years old.
Luke used to beat my mom. A woman beater? Abuse? Yup! That was him! He even shot her in the leg I think. I don’t know. But still. He used to beat her.
Beat her down so she couldn’t even move and walk. At the age of 3, he kicked me and my mom out of the house.
Following Cree’s allegation against her father, her sister also co-signed with Cree and asked her father to play an active role in their younger brother’s life. After these statements, Luke finally decided to give a response.
In his response, Luke stated that he has only one kid, and he and his wife are raising him. His statement read, “I have one kid. His name is Blake Campbell, and he stays with me, and me and my wife raise him.”
Not only Luke denied his other children, but he also stressed that he had spent a lot of money, in millions, on child support. Afterward, he alleged that the mothers of his other kids only got pregnant in order to get financial support.
Following such statements, he began to receive huge backlash. To stop the public outrage, he even denied that he had made those statements. But, all of that went in vain when an unedited version of Luke saying that statement was released.
In the last measure to stop the backlashes, the rapper released a statement in which he mentioned that he loves all of his children. The statement continued as it read;
But if my children don’t want to have anything to do with me, then that is something that I can do nothing about. Only God can heal their hearts, and in the end, only God can judge me. Not no man or woman, only God.
The backlashes eventually slowed down as time passed. Both Luke and Cree moved on in their lives and gradually worked to be successful in their careers.
However, it seems like the peace might not last long as Cree Campbell and her father, Luke Campbell, will sit together in the reality TV show, Growing Up Hip Hop. So let’s see if the father-daughter duo can resolve their issues and rekindle their relationship.
The father-daughter duo's reunion episodes air on June 24 episode. Furthermore, the all-new episodes of Growing Up Hip Hop airs every Thursday at 9 p.m. EST on WE tv.
