Rohan Marley Says He Will Help Lauryn Hill With The Kids While She Is Serving Time

By  |  228 Comments

LboogieRohan Marley, the father to Lauryn Hill’s five children, has said that he is prepared to take over the care for his children while Hill serves three months in prison. Marley is the father of five of Hill’s children, age ranges 5 to 15. Hill has one son from another relationship in 2011. Marley and Hill dated for 13 years but never made it official. They called it quits in 2009.

Marley has seven children all together. His first two were with is college sweetheart, Geraldine Khawly. Marley is the sixth child of the late Bob Marley, born just two days after his brother, Robbie.

Marley told TMZ, “I will be there for my kids.”  He says that he has always been involved in his children’s lives but says that he will make sure he is there even more, to make sure that everything goes smoothly while their mother is away. Contrary to popular belief, Hill has always claimed that Marley never abandoned her and their children. According to TMZ Lauryn’s children will stay with family members with Marley frequenting as much as possible.

Hill learned of her fate last week, in front of a judge, in Newark. Hill pled guilty, last year, to not paying her taxes for the years 2005-2007, in the prime of her career. The singer reportedly owed over $1.8 million dollars to the IRS. Hill soon went into hiding, claiming that the welfare of her children and family were in jeopardy. After three months in jail, Hill will do 3 months of home incarceration. Just recently, Hill inked a deal with Sony records, which will hopefully revive her career as one of the greatest vocalist of all time. The 1990s singer/rapper is expected to report to serve her time no later than July 8.

    Why would Rohan not give her the money? Rastafari, king of kings!

      I thought the same thing. Then, I thought, perhaps, all of her friends may have helped.
      According to the news, she still owes $30.000.
      I find it hard to believe that she could not have come up with the balance.
      The children’s father, is acting like he is doing some great heroic act, those are his children. H as he been there all of the time.
      I also felt just on the” Marley” name, he could have raised the money.
      Perhaps, he did help and now he wants his name out there like he is doing so much. He still will not have the children living with him.

      Most of us pay our taxes or pay for late fees, even with legal extensions.
      I wonder, why do the people who make millions, always seem to be the ones, who get imprisoned for tax evasion.

      I, think of those who have never paid taxes because they have lived off the government all of their lives.
      I also wonder what happened to Lauren.did she just not pay her taxes or did someone mismanage her money. why did she say she had to go in hiding to protect her children?
      My heart does go out to her,in spite of her reasons for having to serve this time in prison. I do pray for her that she will be able to concentrate on her new album.

    He doesn’t deserve a medal. Those are his kids and he should be there for them regardless.

      give the man a break. he’s probably just answering everyones question which is who will take care of the children. i don’t think he is wanting a medal i think he is answering a question. she didn’t think enough of her kids to pay her taxes. where are the critics about her? leave the dad alone. he has nothing to do with this tax debacle. when you are a mother with that many kids you obey the law and stay out of jail and take care of them. leave dad alone!

    It if very noble of Brother Marley to standup and be where it is very good that he will be.This is our job. I wish the beautiful sister all the very best. No matter what I want to say that she is not to let this incident ever set her back but keep her chest us walk tall and cast a long shaddow and for Brother Marley always support her and give her all the encouragement in the world.I hope that all African people will also give them all the encouragement and support that they can.

    Why doesn’t he just move in and take care of the kids. Five kids and 13 years together and no marriage? What’s up with that. It is his job to take care of his children and why does he have to tell the public that he would do it. He made them????? Man UP!!!!!!!

    This story and other tax evasion stories doesn’t sit well with me.

    Article says she “owed” the money (past tense)’ so if she paid then she should not be sent to jail. People should not be sent to jail for these kinds of things. She didn’t harm anyone. The punishment seems extreme. Is it me or is their a pattern of black artists being sent to jail for back taxes (Wesley Snipes). It’s like the government is trying to make an example of them.

    I am also annoyed that the same government who still has not paid its repatriation (40 Acres and a mule) to black people has the audacity to demand their pound of flesh from black people..

    If she didnt pay off the back taxes and really inked a deal with Sony, they why don’t they front her the money? I’m thinking it would be better for them to have an artist fully focused on her career than in a jail cell.

    Thank you for giving me a place to anonymously vent my frustrations.

    Rohan marley and Lauryn Hill would have been married. If Lauryn didn’t get caught cheating with Wyclef.That’s why Rohan walked away, he was committed to her. I heard they were engaged,but Lauryn cheated she mess that up. Rohan Marley is a good man,and it broke his heart. because he wanted a future with her. And you cheating with Wyclef and when he came out with that gossip book on Wendy Williams. Nobody didn’t buy the book, because you were trashing your fugees members. They didn’t want to hear that shit.

      Not that I condone cheating but….are you sure he wasn’t cheating too? Rasta’s believe in having more than one women!

    Why would he need to comment, they are his children. How stupid is he, and she is stupid for having 5-children without marriage?

    Yeah for him.

      Sure she made poor choices every one can’t be perfect like you! But she also made a good living and provided for them unfortunately things got our of hand…but you wouldn’t know that because you are perfect!

    She gets no sympathy from me, just another stupid Black woman having babies on the assembly line for a man that does not care enough about her to put a “ring on it.” Then being stupid as she is, she has another one that did not give a darn about her, but why purchase the cow when you can get the milk for free???? With the money she made there was no reason for her NOT to pay her income taxes!

    JERK! TO LITTLE TO LATE. WHY NOT PAY THE BILL AND KEEP YOUR KIDS MOM OUT OF JAIL? I AM SO NOT IMPRESSED WITH HIS RESPONSE.

    He gets no medals from me that’s his job. Why couldn’t he her out with the money to the IRS I would respect him more if he stepped up to the plate to help with the bill. I’m sure he helped her spend the money MAN UP

    When I moved into the hood, the first lesson I learned is that people don’t have to do anything. I will give him a medal getting busy. I was not feeling this cat in the past because of her condition and I felt he was very much the blame. Some say that is what parents do, not all parents, that’s why there is hell in the streets of Chicago, Oakland and Detroit. I can forget the past, step up now brother, these children are at risk. There are too many brothers standing down. This may be a blessing in disguise, Lauren can wake up from the daze she has been in, he can reconnect with the labor side of child rearing and her sweet melodic voice can reemerge at the top of the charts. Now is the time for the entire family to take inventory and chart a course that will energize the children to be wonderful human beings. She has paid the money back, she just needs to do her time and come on back.

    I am ROTFL!!! Do you really consider this news? Could you not have written about something else that deserves the public’s attention? REALLY?? My guess is that Rohan is to be commended for taking care of his children; like its not his responsibility.

    You all are a great big joke!!! Publish something, please, that deserves serious attention and not this rubbish!

    Wow …you’re really stepping up to the plate Rohan. NEGRO…..YOUR SUPPOSED TO DO THAT REGARDLESS IF SHE WENT TO JAIL OR NOT!!!!!

    Great, so now women have to go to jail before daddy can step in and be daddy. And he’s just trying to have visitation with them while somebody else has the actual everyday responsibility. Here is a reminder to both of them: you have to multi-task like everyone else in American, which means you have to screw, make babies, and pay taxes!

    It seems convenient that many of the people commenting here seem to have blocked out the part of the article that says Ms. Hill maintains that Rohan Marley has played his role. What is up with all these man bashers. Who is impressed with y’all using assumptions and hate to ignore the real issue at hand. That this woman is being made an example of, being sent to prison even though she has paid this so called debt she owes. This is a move by the courts that disrupts her family life. She has several small children, how about bashing the court and judge rather than their Father who is being supportive of her and his children. I doubt he had to chase down this reporter in order to make a statement regarding this whole scenario. On being questioned about this, his response is more than appropriate. You people need to wake up or shut up. To all Lauryn Hill supporters, I feel really terrible that it appears there is nothing we can do. I wish we would form a group and go peacefully protest at the prison, the court, the judge home, whatever we can to get this reversed. It’s not right what they are doing to her and all our legitimate black role models who are standing up for something and showing us and our children an alternative to what the media is forcing on us; self degradation and death. Props to Lauryn Hill for doing what she felt was right as a mother and as a human being and props to Rohan Marley for doing what is right as a man towards his children and their mother.

    Why didn’t he marry her? The Black community is tarnished by this “baby mamas crap.”
