Rohan Marley Calls Wyclef A Liar

by Yesha Callahan

Wyclef Jean made headlines recently with his new memoir Purpose, after he purposefully disclosed details about his affair with Lauryn Hill and alleging that she lied about the paternity of her first-born. Wyclef stated that the lies led to the breakup of The Fugees and caused irreparable damage to their friendship.

Although Lauryn Hill has yet to make a statement about the allegations, the father of her children, Rohan Marley, has taken it upon himself to set the record straight. Rohan called Wyclef’s accusations bullshit and a money-making ploy. “He knew from jump that was my son from the day [Lauryn] was pregnant”, is what he told TMZ. He also said that Wyclef and Lauryn did mess around before he came onto the scene, but during the time period in question, he spent countless hours in the studio with Lauryn so there’s no way there was ever an affair.

For what it’s worth, I’m actually glad Rohan is speaking out against Wyclef and defending Lauryn Hill. It gives some insight into their relationship, that has been kept under lock and key for so long. Unlike Wyclef, apparently Lauryn or Rohan isn’t into airing their dirty laundry just to sell a book which is what Rohan is blaming Wyclef of doing.

Do you think it was good that Rohan did speak out in support of Lauryn Hill?

    One trifling ass man trading barbs with another. Interesting.

    I know that’s right. I’m pretty sure Rohan was married when he started messing around w/ Lauryn too. All a hot mess!

  • Laugh

    Yea it is all a hot mess! But sideeye goes to Wyclef cause ummm the whole world knew that was Rohan baby how come Wyclef didn’t? Then he tries to skate over the fact that he, Wyclef, was married and cheating on his wife like Lauryn is a liar and he isn’t! I think somebody is trying to sell books.

    The least he can do for the mother of his dunno 5/6/7 whatever kids! *SMH*

  • Deena

    I wonder, is he defending Lauryn or his own ego?

    Didn’t Rohan originally say Lauryn’s last child wasn’t his? I just lost respect for the entire bunch. Wyclef cheated, Lauryn tried to pull a Maury on him and Rohan had a bunch of kids with her, drove her crazy and then got engaged to someone else (and is rumored to be still married to his first wife)..sounds like an episode of Snapped just waiting to happen.

    They can base a daytime soap opera off of this mess.

  • ChillyRoad

    No one can drive another crazy in the literal sense. Allow that woman responsibility over her own life. Its empowering.

  • Pseudonym

    Randomly on YouTube and I came across this song Wyclef wrote completely trivializing Rihanna’s “Man Down” called “Rihanna’s Gun.”

    I just…cannot with this man.

  • LaNubiana

    All and all, unnecessary drama.

  • CoCo Brown

    They all need to repent. They all need Jesus bottom line.

  • faith bowman

    sucking my teethe, because he left this woman publicly and didn’t look back. i think it’s more about making sure people know he was on top in that situation. what gets me is how a beautiful, talented woman like lauryn hill is being dragged around like this. it hurts me, and i’m not even involved!

  • sholla21

    I disagree that Ronan drove her crazy. She was seemingly sleeping with two married men around the same time. While Ronan and Clef are cheaters with little credibility, she clearly has issues herself. She’s no victim in this messy trio.

    As stated before Two ratchet people can not occupy the same space and same time without drama ensuing, the number an intensity only increases with the more ratchet people you add in the equation.

    I think for the sake of the child involved EVERYONE should fall silent. The last thing you want to do is put doubt in a child’s mind or paint their mother in a bad light. Wyclef has enough money so if this is to sell a book shame on him…it wasn’t news…..what 14 years ago when the kid was born so why is it now.

  • Chantella

    Why would Wyclef come up with such issues after 14yrs ? That’s’ so bad. It doesn’t show good moral since a child is involved.

  • dee bailey

    Glad he didn’t become president of Haiti; they have enough problems. He ‘seems’ to have integrity issues.
