Lauryn Hill Defends Rohan Marley
Lauryn Hill and her representatives took to Twitter to clean up the rumors swirling around about her, Rohan Marley and her newborn son, to which she insisted that he (Marley) did not abandon her during her pregnancy.
"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 both of us. Thank you for your concern and I appreciate all of the well wishes regarding the birth of my new son."
"Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which 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 defend and preserve our right to it," Hill stated.
Despite the attempt to remove speculation from her and Marley, Hill’s use of the phrase “our 5 children,” even though she now has six kids, has fired up gossipmongers even more, and many if Marley is actually the father of the newest son.
Marley’s own curious Twitter phrasing in congratulating Hill on “her new son” caused eyebrows to raise even higher.
"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," Marley tweeted.
The mere fact that Hill has given birth to another child has rubbed hungry fans the wrong way, with some remarking that she should "quit dropping babies and drop another album."
Others, like YouTuber Jay Smooth, however, have come to her defense.
"The more I see people saying things like that, the more I hope that Lauryn keeps on raising her kids and never makes another album for you greedy, selfish asses," he said on Twitter. "When we start acting like our love for their work is a down payment on their indentured servitude, that's when I think there's a problem."
Hill must be more partial to her fans wishes, though. She returned to the stage in Los Angeles merely a week after giving birth.
