Lauryn Hill finds herself at the centre of some pretty damning allegations, courtesy of a new book, written by her former band mate Wyclef Jean. Hill and Jean were both members of the successful ‘90s hip-hop trio The Fugees. In a new book, entitled Purpose, Wyclef has revealed that he and Lauryn had an affair, which resulted in the band’s demise. Controversially, The New York Post has learned from the book, Wyclef claims that Lauryn lied to him about the paternity of her first born son.
Wyclef was married at the time of his affair with Lauryn and he claims that she tricked him into believing her firstborn son was his. In fact, the father of the son was Rohan Marley, Bob Marley’s son. “In that moment something died between us,” Wyclef writes in the book. “I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that.” Haitian-born Wyclef added that the conflict eventually led to the breakup of The Fugees. “She could no longer be my muse,” writes Jean. “Our love spell was broken.” Jean performed on Friday (September 15, 2012) at the HK Lounge in Hell’s Kitchen, along with the guitarist Prince Charming. The book itself is published today (September 18, 2012).
Lauryn Hill has been in the news with her own dramas recently as well. She was faced with a court battle after it was alleged that she had an unpaid tax bill of around $400,000. In August 2012, it was reported that she turned down an interview with Oprah Winfrey. These latest allegations will do little to help the singer’s public image.
