Rohan Marley Says He Was ‘Heatbroken’ after Split with Lauryn Hill

When entrepreneur and son of legend Bob Marley, Rohan Marley, split with Hill after a 14 year relationship in 2011, it made blog headlines, especially when he went public with his relationship and engagement to Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana. That relationship is now over, and Marley expresses in a recent interview with Open Magazine, that he was heartbroken over his split with Hill.

“I feel sad that I loved her so much and I faltered in expressing it to her somehow. It was my fault that she did not understand how I felt, and it was sad that we did not work out in that relationship sense. I was heartbroken for a long time,” he said.

Now that the nuptials with Fontana are canceled, Marley claims self-love after the two failed relationships. “Now, I am just engaged to myself,” he says with a laugh, “It is tough, but we are not to ask ourselves, ‘Could you be loved?’ but to say, ‘Yes, I am loved’.”

Marley and Hill have five children together.
