The son of late reggae icon Bob Marley, Rohan, has confirmed his split with ex-lover Lauryn Hill and detailed where their relationship currently stands.
According to Rohan, they have come to an understanding with one another despite a break-up after ten years together.
Rohan Marley says that his relationship with his ex-partner Lauryn Hill is "good" when it comes to the welfare of their children. The businessman and son of reggae star Bob Marley, admits that things aren't perfect between him and the Doo Wop (That Thing) hitmaker, with whom he has five children. But he says that since their split last year, after more than a decade together, they both remain good parents to their children. "[Our relationship] is good as in... in terms of being a mother and father to our children, it's good," says Marley, who is now engaged to Brazilain supermodel Isabeli Fontana. "It's not as perfect as one might want it to be. It's just the way the road went." (Voice-Online)
He also hinted at there being some internal problems during their tenture together.
Speaking of their highly publicised break-up, the 40-year-old co-founder of gourmet coffee company Marley Coffee, added: "As a man, there are certain things I don't accept, and it just so happened that I didn't accept certain things [in the relationship]. "It doesn't mean she's [Hill] a bad person or I'm a bad person. It just didn't work out." (Voice-Online)
Last summer, Hill issued a statement addressing her intricate relationship with Rohan.
"Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning," the statement reads. "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." (Statement)
The former couple welcomed their last child together in July 2011.
It's a boy for Lauryn Hill! The singer welcomed her sixth child on Saturday night, July 23rd, a source confirms to Blackcelebkids.com exclusively. "Mother and baby are fine," says the source, who adds that Hill and family "had a little scare because the baby came out the womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. All is well now and everyone is happy." (Black Celeb Kids)
