Lauryn Hill gave birth to her sixth child on Saturday (July 23). And ever since the birth, people have been speculating that her longtime love and father of her previous five children, Rohan Marley, had abandoned her and the baby.
But contrary to reports, Hill is setting the record straight about Marley’s supposed “abandonment” and whether or not she is the father of the child.
“Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child,” the Grammy winner said in a statement Tuesday on Twitter. “We have had long periods of separation over the years but our five children together remain a joy to both of us.” Hill said five.
On Saturday, Marley, 39, even tweeted that he expressed “well wishes to Ms. Hill on the birth of her new son.” Notice the word her?
Hill added that she and Marley “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 on defend and preserve our right to it.”
