Lauryn Hill has confirmed that on-off lover Rohan Marley is not the father of her newborn baby.

The ex-Fugees singer already has five children with Rohan – son of late reggae legend Bob Marley – but has released a statement to clear up supposed "inaccuracies" about their "long and complex" relationship.

Releasing the message via her Twitter account, Twitter.com/MsHillMvngTrgt, Hill said

Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child. We have had long periods of separation over the years but our 5 children together remain a joy to us



Marley has also tweeted about the birth of Hill's new baby, stating:

I'm forwarding all well wishes to Ms Hill on the birth of her new son. I'm sure she'll appreciate the love being sent to her.



Rumours of a Fugees reunion have swirled in the years since the group - which also comprised Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel - last reunited in 2004.

However, Jean appeared to rule out getting the three-piece back together again earlier this year, stating a reunion was "not meant to be".
