Lauryn Hill Speaks Out on Relationship with Rohan Marley

Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley

Lauryn Hill gave birth to her sixth child, a son called “Baby Boy Marley,” over the weekend. There were various reports questioning the father’s identity. The former Fugees member took to Twitter to address the speculation and defend her right to privacy.

Rohan Marley, the father of Hill’s five previous children, was rumored to have left the singer during her pregnancy for Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana. While some believed he was the father of the sixth child, his tweet suggested otherwise. “I’m forwarding all well wishes to Ms. Hill on the birth of her new son,” he tweeted. “I’m sure she’ll appreciate the love being sent to her RASTAFARI R.M.”

Ms. Hill blasted back at the reports. “Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child,” she wrote. “We have had long periods of separation over the years, but our 5 children together remain a joy to both of us.”

    Congrats to Ms. Hill she handle her business like a real woman. Rohan still running off at the mouth witht he slick-side comments “I’m forwarding all well wishes to Ms. Hill on the birth of her new son.”

    Sorry I don’t trust people who like to speak to the media like he did, talking about other people children, whatever. TO ALL THE LOUD MOUTHS IN THE WORLD, WATCH WHAT YOU SAY.

    what?!!! i dont get it? she wants us to respect their privacy, yet he uses twitter and she doesn’t. Why wont he stop twitting bullshit if he wants privacy? They are both just feeding the fuel, when easily Lauryn can break the silence and do an television/magazine interview or put out music so we can get a real feel for whats going on.

    Lauryn is classy. She basically said “f*** all y’all negative nosy people, and stay out of my business” but in the proper way. I love her.

    @ashley,

    There you go, all up in people’s business and don’t know what you’re talking about. Why don’t you just tell us how you know Rohan Marley is married. Take your time. I’ll check in later to see what you come up with.

    Can someone tell me what is this hate on Lauryn Hill, is it a crime to have many children if you can take care of them. Why are people on Lauryn’s case when Angelina and Brad Pitt have 6 kids and are not married? Why are people tripping, according to celebrity net Lauryn is worth 20 million dollars and the Marley’s are wealthy as well, Rohan is the brains behind current Marley estate business deals.

    Do people do research before they post anything negative about this woman considering how private she is? Are people sure that she was really dumped, is this brazillian model really dating Rohan (really cannot compare an average looking pale model to an extremely talented artist) clearly its plain stupid.

    People who spread rumors about Lauryn are pathetic and evil. They seriously have an agenda. In recent years some media outlets claimed she is crazy and on drugs, when there was no evidence of such. Now she has her sixth child people are raving and ranting as if she has killed someone.

    PLEASE LET THIS WOMAN LIVE HER LIFE SHE IS NOT BOTHERING ANYONE

    I agree that a grown man shouldn’t be talking to the media about somebody elses child. But Ms. Hill should of said she wasn’t with Marley months ago. They are public figures they cant hide everything.

    @stan,
    Ms. Hill doesn’t have to say anything because it ain’t your business. Read the tweet AGAIN.

All that matters is that the kids are taken care of relationships end everyday so stop hatin……..Ms. Hill I have always had nothing but love and respect for you. Continue to do your Motherly duties and I wish you all the best with your new Baby.

    Maurey opens the envelope, “you are not the father”. Ms. Hill is cleaver, but I can read between the lines. #six is not his son. Which is cool, and her business. But just say that and keep it movin. Ms. Hill is on her grind to get back out here and retain her relevance in the music business.
    Get use to the scutiny.
