Lauryn Hill: ‘Bob Marley’s son is not the father of my newborn baby’

Ex-Fugees singer has five other children with Rohan Marley

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,, 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”.
