The turbulent relationship between Dalton Harris and his mother, Sylvia Campbell, played out before our eyes as Harris competed on and won the 2018 X Factor reality competition in the United Kingdom.
While competing, Harris had shared stories of childhood abuse, poverty, and being homeless at 15. However, Harris’ mother contradicted those stories, telling the media that her son had exaggerated.
This caused a rift between the two that they finally mended, and we witnessed the reunion on a recent episode on SimSoul Sessionon TVJ. Campbell told host Simone Clarke-Cooper that a part of her was missing when she wasn’t on speaking terms with her son.
“My dream was fi Dalton and I get together, because it was like something missing from me, we did have this bond.” She said when her son decided to check himself into rehab, she knew she had to be open to mending their relationship.
“It really hit me when him tell me say him a go a rehab because me a say, ‘den nuh mad people go a rehab?’ But I’m so happy now, we talk everyday. Him send me pictures. Anything him cook him send it,” she said.
Harris had revealed in an earlier episode of the show that he had gone into rehab in January of this year to heal from childhood trauma that haunted him in his adult life.
Fans of the singer were overjoyed at the news that he and his mom have mended their relationship.
