Legendary American singer and record producer Smokey Robinson recently showed off his beautiful daughter Tamla as he celebrated her birthday with a sweet picture of her on his Instagram feed.
Smokey Robinson has all the love to give his beautiful daughter Tamla Claudette. The renowned singer showed how deep the love went when he recently took to his Instagram to share a sweet photo of her on his feed.
The heartwarming post was to commemorate her 51st birthday. The gorgeous photo was posted yesterday, and it was a black and white close-up selfie of the celebrant.
She was simply clad in what looked like a black top and had her lovely luscious dark hair parted at the center, framing her smiling face as it fell to her shoulders in a straight line.
What stood out most in the photo was Tamla's age-defying beauty, which was also accentuated by the simple but stunning makeup she had on. Beneath the shot was the sweet caption:
"Happy birthday to My (little) Girl ?"
Seeing the post, it is evident the father-daughter duo share a tight bond as this is not the first time they are showing off the purity of their relationship on social media.
Tamla once posted a wholesome photo of her and the singer posing with another family member on her Instagram feed. In the shot, they all had huge smiles on their faces as they posed for the camera.
She immediately filed a counterclaim, claiming that she was entitled to 50 percent of his songs.
Nonetheless, despite the seemingly happy surface, all is not particularly well in paradise. In 2014, Robinson was involved in a messy lawsuit with his ex-wife Claudette after she demanded her share of his hit songs.
It all started after the singer tried to reclaim rights to his works after Congress terminated the protocol provision of the 1976 Copyright Act, now giving artists bargaining rights over their released works.
However, he filed a lawsuit against Claudette with the petition of not sharing the reclaimed rights. She immediately filed a counterclaim, claiming that she was entitled to 50 percent of his songs.
She further accused him of breaching fiduciary duty, committing constructive fraud, and breaching the terms of a 1989 stipulated judgment.
The bittersweet family drama won't, however, cancel out Robinson's impact on the entertainment industry in the last decades.
The singer, songwriter, and producer is credited with over 4,000 songs and 37 Top 40 hits. The Grammy Award winner also founded the famed R&B group The Miracles.
He later published a best-selling autobiography titled "Smokey: Inside My Life," which revealed that the singer had a two-year drug problem that nearly took his life.
In a recent interview, the 80-year-old opened up about addressing his younger self. He admitted that he would tell him to slow down, be cool, and just wait because everything was going to happen.
His words were no surprise as it is known that fame comes with fast-paced living. The world is, however, grateful that Robinson's life did not spiral out of control.
