Lauryn Hill has been romantically linked to Bob Marley’s son, Rohan Marley for decades however the duo never officially married. Despite this, Hill in the past has publicly referred to Rohan Marley as her husband in numerous encounters, as retrieved via Hello! Magazine. Hill and Marley first met each other in 1996, as the So High singer was ending her relationship with Wyclef Jean. 

The duo together welcomed five children as their relationship progressed at a steady rate. However, during their relationship, the couple lived most of their time apart from each other as Hill moved to New Jersey when she had her kids. After over a decade of their on-and-off relationship, Hill and Marley finally separated their paths in 2008. 

Though both Hill and Marley refrained from commenting on their unusual relationship status in their time together. But even after their split, they continued to work together to raise their children. Rohan even took custody of his five children for three months for a brief period of three months when Hill was arrested on the charges of tax evasion. 


Talking about his relationship with Hill, Rohan Marley, expressed his grief on their breakup. He admitted that it was his fault that they eventually ended up splitting away from each other. "I feel sad that I loved her so much and I faltered in expressing it to her somehow. It was my fault that she did not understand how I felt, and it was sad that we did not work out in that relationship sense. I was heartbroken for a long time,”  Rohan shared, as per Open Magazine.
