Cee Lo Says That He Wanted To Marry Good Friend Lauryn Hill Back In The Day

September 11, 2013  |  

In the year 2013, Lauryn Hill is an umarried mother of six children, and currently serving time in prison for tax evasion. But years ago, she was one of the biggest stars on the planet. And along with the success and money she garnered, she made some very famous friends, including Cee Lo Green. He was still a member of Goodie Mob around the time Hill was making major moves, and after meeting her and forming a friendship with the former Fugees singer, Cee Lo says he fell in love with Hill.

In his new memoir, Everybody’s Brother, the singer opens up about his criminal past, including holding people up by gunpoint, losing his father, and having low self-esteem for many years. According to the Daily Mail, he also opens up about Hill and his love for her in the past. In the book he says that he met the singer right before he met his now ex-wife, Christina Johnson. He wanted to marry her as he felt she was made “just for me.” It’s not clear if Hill actually felt anything for Green or if he even told her about his feelings, but in the end, he married Johnson, and after her torrid relationship with Wyclef Jean, Hill started a family with Rohan Marley.

But when speaking of their bond, Green says in his memoir that even though their love connection didn’t happen, “…we still got to have a great friendship that ended up making a big difference in my life.” They had a tight friendship and the two even did a song together with Carlos Santana called “Do You Like The Way” in 1999, which Hill produced. I couldn’t see these two making a love connection happen, but it’s definitely interesting to hear that he wanted to be more than “just friends.”
