In the last 72 hours, two men from Lauryn Hill’s past have come out the woodwork to talk about their relationship with the troubled singer and they aren’t portraying her in the best light. On Friday, we told you how Rohan was subtly putting Lauryn on blast about some behavior that he just couldn’t accept as a man; now, her former bandmate Wyclef wants us to believe that L-Boogie tried to pull a Maury Povich on him and declare he was the father of her oldest son when he isn’t.
The allegation is exposed in Wyclef’s new memoir, “Purpose,” in which he talks about his extramarital affair with Lauryn during the same time she was involved with Rohan Marley. As we know now, Rohan is the father of Lauryn’s son, Zion, but Wyclef claims she initially lied and told him otherwise.
“In that moment something died between us,” he wrote. “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. She could no longer be my muse. Our love spell was broken.”
Now I’m not trying to say Wyclef is lying, I just want to know why he’s talking about this in the first place. He claims that Lauryn’s lie is what broke up the Fugees in 1997, but there’s really nothing to be gained from revealing this information—other than increased book sales, of course. It’s sort of hard to take a man who was cheating on his own wife seriously about his love spell with another woman being broken because of a lie she told. I need him to spend as much time analyzing his own shortcomings and the lies he told his own wife in his memoir rather than exposing someone else’s, particularly when a child, who is now 12 years of age and old enough to have access to this information, is involved.
What do you think about Wyclef writing about Zion’s paternity in his new memoir?
