It’s about to get ugly in the comments section. Since people found out earlier this year that Rohan Marley is engaged to marry supermodel Isabeli Fontana, the shade thrown at him has been so real. Essentially, the reaction boiled down to: So Lauryn Hill is good enough to bear five of your children over the past 15 years or so but not to marry?
Well, for the first time that I’m aware of, the son of reggae legend Bob Marley is speaking out just a bit about his current relationship with Lauryn and what caused them to part ways last year in an interview with UK’s The Voice online that I noticed on The Jasmine Brand.
“As a man, there are certain things I don’t accept, and it just so happened that I didn’t accept certain things [in the relationship],” he told the site. “It doesn’t mean she’s a bad person or I’m a bad person. It just didn’t work out.”
The couple’s breakup in 2011 was highly publicized, although it would appear the public was late on the breakdown that occurred between the pair since Lauryn eventually made it known that her sixth child, son Micah who was born in July 2011, had a different father who is still unknown to us. And then there was that engagement news about Rohan that hit in May, about seven months after the couple got together. Given that timeline, it’s safe to assume their problems began long before we knew anything about them.
As far as Lauryn and Rohan’s relationship goes today, he says it’s getting to where it needs me.
“[Our relationship] is good as in… in terms of being a mother and father to our children, it’s good,” he said.“It’s not as perfect as one might want it to be. It’s just the way the road went.”
He doesn’t sound too broken up about it. I wonder how things are moving along with him and Isabeli since they postponed their nuptials. At the time that news broke, the story was that Isabeli wanted to get to know all of Rohan’s children before walking down the aisle. I’d be curious to see how much closer they are to that milestone.
What do you think about Rohan’s interview?
