“Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child.” That’s what Lauryn Hill had to say about when asked about her new baby and his mystery father.
Lauryn, 36, has five children with long-time partner Rohan Marley, but baby number six has a different father.
In a Twitter statement yesterday, the singer added, “We have had long periods of separation over the years but our five children together remain a joy to both of us.
Rohan, meanwhile, tweeted that he has “a tremendous amount of love and respect” for “the mother of my children.” Two days later he formally expressed “well wishes to Ms. Hill on the birth of her new son.” It’s believed that Rohan was tweeting from the company of his new Brazilian supermodel girlfriend, Isabeli Fontana.
Lauryn feels fans should understand the “long and complex history” between her and Bob Marley’s son. “Many inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning. To speculate without the facts can only cause people to form wrong conclusions. We both value privacy and for that reason on defend and preserve our right to it.
Do you think Lauryn is telling the truth about the baby’s paternity?
