Last week, Wyclef Jean dropped his memoir, Purpose, which – among other things – exposed that Lauryn Hill allegedly lied to him and led him to believe that she was pregnant with his baby. In the book, Clef explained, “In that moment something died between us. I was married, and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that.”
Well, now that the dust has settled, Lauryn Hill’s ex-partner and father of her son, Zion, Rohan Marley, has come forward to defend his ex-lover of 15 years. He recently told TMZ that Wyclef’s recollection of the pregnancy is “bullsh*t” and a money-making ploy.
“[Wyclef] knew from jump that was my son from the day [Lauryn] was pregnant.”
Rohan — one of Bob Marley’s sons and a former football student at U. of Miami — does admit Lauryn and Wyclef screwed around before he came on the scene, but says he’s confident it ended because Wyclef actually played matchmaker … “They were definitely not messing around, or he would never have given me the okay.”
He also says he and Lauryn were together in studio sessions night and day back then, so there wouldn’t even be time for her to have the alleged affair.
Rohan added he thinks Wyclef is “just saying false things to get book headlines” — and he has no plans to talk it out with ‘Clef because “he knows he is fronting himself.
For his part, Wyclef tells TMZ, “There is no way that I would have shown up in the hospital in that circumstance to wait for a baby to be born if it was not mine. The idea of a memoir is to tell the truth. I know that often the truth hurts, but a lie hurts even more.”
