Lauryn and Rohan: This Looks Like a Job For… Maury!

The birth of Lauryn Hill’s sixth child, while not causing a public stir on par with the birth of Christ, has created quite a rumble of speculation in the blogosphere.

About what? Of course, whether Rohan Marley is or is not the father. (The question of whether L-Boogie and Rohan are still a couple isn’t that important at this point.)

The two have crafted the perfect storm for a gossip-fest through their cryptic Tweets in regards to each other… The fuse lit when Marley tweeted: “2 things, I’m not married and I don’t have anyone expecting anything.”

Then following Hill giving birth, he sent this congratulatory tweet: “I’m forwarding all well wishes to Ms. Hill on the birth of her new son. I’m sure she’ll appreciate the love being sent to her RASTAFARI R.M.”

What! Her new son? Where’s the “our?”  And what’s up with referring to her as “Ms. Hill?”  Oh, the humanity!

But then Hill, maybe in an effort to continue the confusion, responds with her own less-than-forward Tweet, saying: “Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning. To speculate without the facts can only cause people to form WRONG conclusions. We both value privacy and for that reason defend and preserve our right to it. Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child. We have had long periods of separation over the years but our 5 children together remain a joy to both of us. Thank you for your concern and I appreciate all of the well wishes regarding the birth of my new son. Until next time, Ms. Hill.”

Again, fodder for the rumor mill. “Our 5 children?” “My son” and not, again, our son? Is Rohan the daddy or not. Now we all want to know. And we have the perfect place for the world to possibly find out… On Maury.

Just imagine the attention such an episode would get—ratings on the level of Michael Jackson’s funeral.

Picture the TV drama: Lauryn on stage yelling to Maury that she “tryin’ ta find da fava of her baby” and how Rohan has moved on to a Brazilian model and he need to “step up and be a man.” Then comes Rohan, staring into the camera and then yelling: “Ya’ll ain’t pinning dat baby on me” along with how Lauryn ain’t his girl no more. The crowd is yelling and screaming until Maury tells us “The Results Are In!”

Lauryn sits pouting with her arms crossed and Rohan, on the other side of the stage, sits leaning forward. Maury extracts the paper from the envelope and says, “In the case of _ month old_______, Rohan, you ARE or (maybe) are NOT the father.”  We, the public, get our answer and either Lauryn or Rohan gets to do a ghetto-fied victory dance on stage.

If the back and forth about the birth of child number six can play out in public, shouldn’t the test to see who the daddy of Lauryn’s baby is go public, too? You tell us…

Whatever Happened To Lauryn Hill?

Published by Carrie Blackshaw on Friday, August 8, 2008 at 3:21 pm.

That’s the title of People’s
feature on Lauryn Hill, who didn’t grant the magazine an interview for the
four-page feature on her in the latest issue that hits newsstands today. Rohan Marley,
the baby daddy for all five of Lauryn’s kids. was happy to chat.

People reveals that Lauryn and her brood live in a three-story brick home in suburban
New Jersey with her mother. Rohan told the magazine Lauryn is focused on raising
thier kids and that “she loves (suburban life), being with her children, seeing
them grow and instilling our teachings of righteousness into them.”

The youngest child, a seven-month old girl, remains without a name. “We want
a name that means ‘Glory of the Ark’; for now, we call her Baby Marley,”
Rohan was quoted as saying.

The magazine asked if Lauryn is down and depressed and he replied, “No.”
She’s got a reputation of showing up extremely late to concerts and he defends
her by saying “She wants to look perfect for her audience. People think she’s
disrespectful, but she’s just a perfectionist.”

Also featured in the issue is a two-page profile on Gerren Taylor, a former model
now starring on BET’s hit reality show Baldwin Hills.

It’s a great issue for both black women to be in since the cover features
the first photos of Brangelina’s twins and inside is a 19-page family album
that I’m sure is not worth the reported $14 million Brad Pitt and Angelina
Jolie received. But since the money goes to charity then I have no complaints.
