Wyclef Jean peddling his new book, Promise, and as a result has scored numerous headlines over quips that during his affair with Lauryn Hill he had fears that her first child was his. You know, until he saw the complexion of the child and realized he was in the clear. It’s an, uh, interesting story, though the actual father of the kid is denouncing Wyclef’s charges.
Speaking with TMZ, Rohan Marley explained that ‘Clef “knew from jump that was my son from the day [Lauryn] was pregnant.”
Rohan — one of Bob Marley‘s sons, and a former football stud at U. of Miami — does admit Lauryn and Wyclef screwed around before he came on the scene, but says he’s confident it ended because Wyclef actually played matchmaker … “They were definitely not messing around, or he would never have given me the okay.”
He also says he and Lauryn were together in studio sessions night and day back then so there wouldn’t even be time for her to have the alleged affair.
Rohan added he thinks Wyclef is “just saying false things to get book headlines” — and he has no plans to talk it out with ‘Clef because “he knows he is fronting himself.
For his part, Wyclef tells TMZ, “There is no way that I would have shown up in the hospital in that circumstance to wait for a baby to be born if it was not mine. The idea of a memoir is to tell the truth. I know that often the truth hurts, but a lie hurts even more.”
