In a public statement, Lauryn dismisses the rumors surrounding her new baby and sets the record straight: ‘Rohan didn’t abandon me!’
After much speculation, the truth is finally out regarding the birth of Lauryn Hill‘s sixth child. Although we still do not know WHO the father of her newborn son is, we do know one thing…it’s NOT longtime partner and baby daddy, Rohan Marley.
In a statement, which both she and Rohan posted to their Twitter pages, Lauryn, 36, says, “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.”
“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.”
So it’s true. Rohan is only the father to FIVE of her six children, Zion David, 14, Selah Louise, 12, Joshua Omaru, 9, John Nesta, 8, and Sarah, 3.
