With new music in the pipeline, the singer says her controversial past is firmly behind her.
MC Harvey and Javine Hylton welcomed daughter Angel in 2008 after falling in love while he was still married to Alesha Dixon.
The scandal rocked the showbiz world, earning both Hylton and Harvey a huge amount of negative press. And the headlines kept coming when Harvey left his wife to pursue a relationship with Hylton.
The couple went on to have a child together, but later split, amid reports that Harvey had cheated on Hylton.
Javine Dionne Hylton (born 27 December 1981), often known simply as Javine, is an English singer and songwriter.
She represented the UK at the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv with “Touch My Fire”.
Hylton has also had a string of singles in the UK.
Javine’s cover version of “You’ve Got a Friend” was the theme music to Garfield: The Movie in 2004.
Javine Hylton Daughter, “Motherhood has really helped me over the past few years. We learn so much from our kids and if ever I’m having a bad day, her energy helps me to snap out of it. With kids, there’s no room for that [self-pity]. You’ve just got to get on with it, especially when you’re a single mum.”
Insisting that she and Harvey remain amicable for the sake of their daughter, she says: “My daughter knows her father; she has a good relationship with him.”
Reflecting on the past, Hylton says that motherhood gave her a new outlook on life.
“Since having my daughter, it takes a lot to get to me now. I have a roof over my head, my mum is healthy – which I’m so grateful for, as I nearly lost my mum a few times – and I really stop and smell the roses now. My life was crazy before, but now I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I always felt that as soon as I turned 30, I would really find myself and not really care about all the crap that goes on.”
