Wyclef Jean discusses the end of his relationship with Lauryn Hill, and reveals that the two had a love affair which ended when Hill lied about who the father of her unborn child was.
In a recent interview with Vibe, former Haitian presidential candidate, and Fugees lead man, Wyclef Jean revealed the source of his and singer Lauryn Hillâ€™s deteriorating relationship.Â Wyclef reveals that the two had an affair, and at the end of their tryst, Hill was deceitful about who the father of her unborn child was.
In preparation of his autobiography, “Purpose: An Immigrantâ€™s Story”, Wyclef talks about his and former Fugees co-hort, Lauryn Hillâ€™s relationship, revealing that the two actually had a long-standing affair.Â When Hill became pregnant she initially led Wyclef to believe that he was the father.Â When it came out that the baby was actually Zohan Marleyâ€™s, Wyclef was crushed and could not forgive Lauryn.
In an excerpt, from HHDX, Wyclef says, â€œIn that moment something died between us. I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldnâ€™t forgive that,â€ adding, â€œShe could not longer be my muse. Our love spell was broken.â€
This certainly adds some intriguing context to the music and lyrics from the Fugees back then, and also both Lauryn Hillâ€™s and Wyclefâ€™s solo projects.
