When Lauryn Hill proudly announced her pregnancy at a June 6 concert, we expected that her long-time partner (and the father of her other five children) Rohan Marley was the dad this time around as well. Well… you know what happens when you assume.
In a Maury-worthy twist, Marley tweeted somewhat cryptic denials of his paternity. “I’m not married and I don’t have anyone expecting anything,” he wrote, from his verified Twitter account. He confirms that Hill is not pregnant with his child, but with someone else’s. “That is correct until I say out of my mouth to the contrary. Trust me, the info out there is so incorrect for so many years…Thx for twitter. I check a few things.”
When prodded to elaborate, Marley tweeted, “I’m wasting time speaking about things that don’t exist.”
Marley, son of reggae icon Bob Marley, met Hill in 1996. Despite the fact that he was already married to his college sweetheart Geraldine Khawly, with whom he has two sons, Marley and Hill began a life together. Hill and Marley’s children are aged 13, 12, 9, 7, and 3
