Lauryn Hill wanted to put the record straight about the birth of her sixth child.
On Saturday, the soul singer, 36, welcoomed her sixth child. Since then, rumors have been circulating about the identity of the child’s father.
Hill announced that Rohan Marley, son of Bob Marley and the father of her other five children, isn’t the father of her sixth child.
“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,” Lauryn Hill wrote on her official website.
For his part, Rohan has also posted a message on Twitter: ” I’m forwarding all well wishes to Ms. Hill on the birth of her new son. I’m sure she’ll appreciate the love being sent to her.”
The Fugees singer also insisted that Marley hadn’t abandoned her while she was pregnant and that the rumors about their relationship were lies.
Lauren continued: “We have had long periods of separation over the years, but our five children together remain a joy to both of us.”
“We both value privacy and for that reason defend and preserve our right to it,” she added.
Lauren and Rohan are the parents of five kids – Zion David, 13, Selah Louise, 12, Joshua Omaru, 9, John Nesta, 8, and Sarah, 3.
