Grammy-winning singer Lauryn Hill has stepped forward and released a statement discussing recent rumors about her newborn baby’s father, Rohan Marley, cheating during her pregnancy.
In the statement, Hill reminds her fans and the public to not draw quick conclusions without the facts.
“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)
Hill’s successful birth made headlines earlier this week.
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)
The son’s father, Rohan Marley, has denied recent rumors that they separated.
The Everything is Everything singer already has five kids with her longtime beau, Rohan Marley, who recently made headlines for leaving an expectant Lauryn for Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana. But Rohan dismissed these rumors, saying, “Ms. Hill is the mother of my children, whom I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for. I would never do that.” Lauryn and Rohan – the fourth son of reggae legend Bob Marley – are parents to five children: Zion, 13, Selah, 12, Joshua, 9, John, 8, and Sarah, 3. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)
After past speculation, Hill released an open letter discussing her pregnancy.
“Coming back home after several months of extensive reconnecting with supporters and music lovers. We thank you for your continued appreciation. The majority of these dates were planned in advance of me knowing about the continued growth of my family (wink, wink). There were some shows that we started late. We apologize and thank you for your patience. That said, I can’t wait to re-engage with you, and give you a musical experience worth coming back for. Let’s do it real soon.” (Statement)
