So like week, Wyclef, declared Lauryn Hill is a liar and a cheat when he revealed she mislead him to believe her eldest son Zion was his. Despite the fact he was married and carrying on an affair with Hill during their days as Fugees band members. Many immediately speculated Wyclef must need attention, I mean, why would he now be throwing Lauryn under a bus after over a decade. Well, we were right. He has a new book and does need some attention.
Too bad Rohan Marley, Lauryn’s ex and Zion’s real father isn’t too fond of the allegations. He says, “Wyclef knew from jump that was my son from the day Lauryn was pregnant!”
He also went on to say, “They were definitely not messing around, or he would never have given me the okay.”

I wonder where’s Lauryn in all this? Hmmmm, interesting.
Earlier in the week, Wyclef Jean, had the rumor mill buzzing when he talked about his love affair with former band mate Lauryn Hill in a recent interview. Although the story isn’t new , (it was confirmed by Lauryn during her ‘Miseducation…’era) what rocked the media was his accusation that Lauryn lied to him about the paternity of her eldest son when she became pregnant.
For a recap here’s a bit of what Wyclef had to say,
On Their Relationship
For the next nine months, I assumed her child was mine. It was easy to do as we rode the wave of success. In my mind, it was complicated and dangerous, but it was beautiful, too: If Lauryn and I had a child together, it was, to me, a product of our music and everything we’d worked to achieve. It made sense to my heart, as much as I knew it was wrong in my mind. If that’s what it came down to, I knew I would be honest with Claudinette and hope I didn’t lose her, just the way I knew I would do right by our child and so would Lauryn……”
On learning the truth
When Lauryn gave birth, I learned the truth: the child wasn’t mine. It was Rohan Marley’s. And in that moment something died between us. I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she had led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that. [..] She could no longer be my muse. Our love spell was broken through her creation.
But why now, right? I immediately assumed Wyclef was perhaps promoting a new project her album when I heard the news and I was right! He has a new book coming out. In the past week he has been promoting his book and talking about his affair with Lauryn during the early stages of his marriage. He’s now defending his decision to talk about the affair and accusations made about Lauryn.

What ever happened to the Lauryn that we use to know? The ‘Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’ Lauryn, remember her?!
Earlier today the above mugshot went viral causing a major upset for Lauryn Hill fans across the globe. The singer was arrested back in June and faces three years in prison for not paying taxes for the last three years.
Following her arrest, she was subsequently released from jail on $150,000 bond and will face a judge for sentencing come November 27th.
Hopefully the judge will be lenient towards the singer. She’s a mother of seven children after all.
“L Boogie” was on hand to join Nas during his Hot 97 Summer Jam set Sunday night, performing “If I Ruled The World”. She may have helped saved the show after fellow female emcee Nicki Minaj cancelled last minute after being dissed by the station’s DJ, Peter Rosenberg. Although Hill supports artists taking a stand on not being disrespected she had to clear up a few rumors as to whether she was to perform alongside Minaj. Lauryn Hill tweeted this message,
No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don’t have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else ‘we’ (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!!
Ms. Lauryn Hill
And this is why we love her. So eloquently said.
And here’s Nas and Lauryn Hill’s performance during Sunday night’s festivities. Lauryn also performed a medley of singles from her solo album along with her Fugees days.
Lauryn Hill is a mother again, for the sixth time anyway. The singer has welcomed another child with longtime boyfriend Rohan Marley.The baby boy was born on Saturday July 23rd.
According to Black Celebrity Kids, “Mother and baby are fine,” says the source, who adds that Hill and family “had a little scare because the baby came out the womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. All is well now and everyone is happy.”
Although we all discovered Hill’s sixth pregnancy only 2 months ago, no one had anticipated Lauryn was already 7 months along!
The Annual Coachella Music Festival was kicked off this weekend with performances from Lauryn Hill, Cee Lo Green, and Erykah Badu among others and as expected many celebs, including Usher, Rihanna and Miguel came out in support of their favorite artists.
