Lauryn Hill has come to her ex Rohan Marley’s defense after various media outlets slammed the Bob Marley kin for allegedly abandoning the “Doo Wop” singer while she was pregnant. In an open letter, Hill, who gave birth to her sixth child this past weekend, insist there are “many inaccuracies” in the reports about the former couple.
“Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning,” writes Ms. Hill. “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.”
She continued: “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.”
A question mark still remains over the identity of the new baby boy’s father, after Hill mentions only having five children with Rohan.
In any event, Ms. Hill appreciates the love from her supporters. “Thank you for your concern and I appreciate all of the well wishes regarding the birth of my new son,” she writes.
