InÂ his new autobiography out Tuesday, WyclefÂ Jean is ready to spill the tea on the truth behind the Fugee’s disbandment and his love affair with front woman Lauryn Hill.
According to the group’s founder, Jean claims thatÂ while he and Hill carried on a relationship throughout his marriageÂ with designer Marie Claudinette, Hill lied about the paternity of her first child.
Jean alleges he was led to believe that her son, Zion, was his when Bob Marley‘s son RohanÂ proved to be the father.
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,” he states.Â
“She could not longer be my muse. Our love spell was broken.”
Jean’s candid memoir Purpose: An Immigrant’s StoryÂ alsoÂ details hisÂ impoverished childhood, journey to fame and the controversy surroundingÂ the YÃ©le Haiti Foundation.
