Last week when we reported that Lauryn Hill was sentenced to three months in prison, despite the fact that she paid off her tax debt, some expressed concern about what would become of her six children, whose ages range from 1 – 15, while she serves her three-month stint.

Rohan Marley, who fathers five of Hill’s children told TMZ that although he is already very active in his children’s lives, he plans to step it up a notch and help out with his children as much as he possibly can while their mom serves out her prison sentence.

“I will be there even more while she is dealing with this … to make sure that everything is fine,” Marley said.

Rohan and Lauryn dated for thirteen years. The pair called it quits back in 2009. Sources tell TMZ that both Rohan and Lauryn agreed that the children will primarily stay with family and Rohan will support those family members in caring for the children. As previously reported, Lauryn has been ordered to turn herself in and begin her three-month sentence on July 8th.

Although this appears to be a very challenging situation, it’s great to see that Lauryn and Rohan are working together to make sure that things go as smoothly as possible for their children, who will more than likely feel much of the impact of their mom’s prison sentence.

    So what he basically said is that he is a lazy dad.

  • Shay n Scrappy 4 ever! Lmao

    Umm isn’t he SUPPOSED to do that or he gets a pass cause he’s Bob Marley’s son???

  • Trisha_B

    He was always taking care of his kids, so this wouldn’t make any difference. They are probably only staying w/ family so they can stay in school.

  • olivia

    They’re his kids!!!

    Who the h3ll else is supposed to step up and take care of them?

    • kierah

      Agreed! I should hope he would take care of his kids while Lauryn is “away.” Next time we’ll be giving applause to brothers for tying their own durn shoelaces.

      Right? I wasn’t even going to read this article because I didn’t understand why a father taking care of his own kids was newsworthy.

      THIS NINJA! I mean seriously, when you become a parent there is no telling what role you have to take in your children’s lives. Men always think of the woman as being the sole provider, or as the custodial parent. But look! Now HE HAS to step up! And those instagram pics of a man ( Rohan) attending certain special events don’t even count anymore. This may actually be a good thing for him. Weren’t they together when these taxes were NOT being paid?
