In an exclusive interview with The Voice, Rohan Marley holds a religious third-party spiritual advisor responsible for his failed relationship with Lauryn Hill.
The former football player and son of reggae legend Bob Marley, who’s now currently engaged to Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana, also revealed that he wanted to get married but Lauryn wasn’t eager on the idea. In fact it was Lauryn who didn’t want to marry Rohan, and not the other way around. “When I was with Lauryn, I wanted to marry her but she just wasn’t ready at the time. I want to be in a relationship where we’re both confident at what we have; I love you and you love me too. But [marriage] wasn’t what she wanted. I called her my queen; my spiritual wife.
On rumours that he abandoned Lauryn for Isabeli whilst she was heavily pregnant:
“I really don’t care what they say about me. It’s only when the person [Lauryn] in question says anything about me that I really care. Other people just speculate. They don’t really know the truth.”
Why their relationship came to an end:
“People have long been fabricating stories about the relationship. One story that came was that I got her assistant pregnant- false. Then, she [Hill] started doing bible studies with this guy and became very secluded from the world because of her studies. But people sad that the seclusion was my fault and that wasn’t the case. I didn’t agree with what the guy was saying and you can’t live under the same roof if she’s taking talk from someone else. “Like my father said’ I’d rather live on the house top than live in a house of confusion.’ That was it. I believe that when I’m with a woman, it should be me and her. Don’t bring a third party into it- that can’t work for me. No-one knows what we do in the bedroom, no-one knows why we argued today or why we smiled today….Ultimately, we grew apart because of our different interpretations of how life should be.”
On his desire to marry Lauryn:
“When I was with Lauryn, I wanted to marry her but she just wasn’t ready at the time. I want to be in a relationship where we’re both confident at what we have; I love you and you love me too. But [marriage] wasn’t what she wanted. I called her my queen; my spiritual wife.”
On their existing relationship:
“[It] is good as in terms of being a mother and father to our children, it’s good. It’s not as perfect as one might want it to be. It’s just the way the road went. “I could never have ill-feeling towards her. She’s the mother if my children. There’s no animosity, but I‘ve moved on.”
