I came to this story just to see the comments. 2 weeks ago when it was reported that Monica had her 2nd and yes I said it 2nd child "out of wedlock" it was stone the whore. Why does she keep having children out of wedlock and her baby daddy hasn't married her yet? She is so stupid and needs to get out of the spotlight because she is giving young girls the wrong idea. Let me address that 1st, why do we expect everyone else to raise our children? I have a daughter and I would never try to blame or expect artists to raise her. I'm her mother and that's my job. Sit the fuck down and raise your own fucking children. Next, let me address why I really had to post a comment. Lauryn Hill has had at least 4 children and yes I said at least 4 children out of wedlock with a man that has been reported to be married. Where in the fuck are the judgemental assholes now? Oh because it is Lauryn Hill no comments or should I say no negative comments. My grandma always says what's good for the goose is good for the gander. Now let that be some food for thought. Oh yeah, congrats Lauryn if that's true. Good Morning to all.

Only for the sake of the children I will them a good maternal/paternal relationship. Otherwise, he destroyed her greatness, by consuming her with the Rastafarian culture (in which I love and adopt many principles from it). Lauryn was born in NJ with exposure to Islam (orthodox/Sunni, Five Percenter, Ansar, NOI doctrines) Rasta culture, Hebrew Israelite, Christianity ways of life - in turn giving her the dynamic ability to think outside of her birthed intellect. But being with the Marley crew and around selfish people period colored her with anger, bitterness, disappointment, depression, isolation and an introverted mindset now. I will that she gets to the understanding that yes the music industry is full of devils, that black people will backstab you and yes people will use you. Get to that understanding Lauryn that where good exists so does evil and you should live much easier without such isolation. Don't look too deep into the industry and the Wyclef bytch like nigggaz you trusted as example of your great works. We need you and many of us got your back!

There is noting wrong with Monica having children and not being married....Both of her children are by the same man who she's been in a long term relationship with and she's rich, successful and can more than take care of and afford to raise her children...As long as you can take care of your children emotionally, financially and give them what they need and you are of age, it's nobody's damn business...It's not like she on welfare or goverment assistance or asking for a handout.

@ Righteousmadame...I don't know much about the jamaican culture..but I have a girlfriend (EX-GIRLFRIEND) who is married to a jamaican and he is one of the most selfish bastards I have ever met. His mom is still in jamaica living in a shack (I mean a real shack)he sends her thousands of dollars, meanwhile his wife has to fend for herself. He sleeps with all kinds of women and talks down to her constantly and his only concern is for her to have "HIS SEED". Anything she acquires on her own that makes her happy he tells her she went against the marriage to gain...I mean a total train wreck. It has effected her so badly that she is alwyas angry and bitter towards the wrong people. The sad part is she good for giving others advice on what SHE thinks they should do with THIER lives while her is an emotional roller coaster. I had to get away from all that. A woman MUST have a strong sense of SELF in order to deal with his kind....

@offmymind: I surely hope you're not a parent with that attitude. Children need their fathers or a male role model in their lives too. I've worked with a lot of children and trust me, by the time many of them are in their middle teens, they start asking about their father, where he is and wanting to meet him. Show me a single parent who can handle it all and I'll sell you some land in Florida. It is impossible to meet the needs of a child when a sole parent has to work, cook, clean, pay all the bills, transport a child to his/her events, spend quality/quantity time, etc. It is very stressful. It helps to have another parent around--mentally, spiritually and financially. Women need to keep this in mind when having unprotected sex with some of these worthless dudes.

A child is a blessing,but the circumstances a child comes into is on the grown folks. Lauren needs to stop chasing another woman's husband cause no matter how she tries to justify it it's just disrespectful.Lauren is acting like Sarah Hemmings.

Rohan Marley: Thread of a Lion Written by Kathy Iandoli The passing of Robert Nesta Marley in 1981 marked the unfortunate death of a true musical revolutionary. Since then, the spirit of the Tuff Gong has echoed through every song he created and in the remarkable talent among his amazing children. Our first embrace of son Rohan Marley occurred when her majesty Lauryn Hill named him the father of her children. Despite his successful career in football, the world had never witnessed the true creativity bestowed upon Rohan from his father - until now. While the image and likeness of Bob Marley is plastered across the t-shirts of fans, ganja-smoking groundlings and unfortunately quasi-activists, Rohan Marley has chosen to create a clothing line that he feels pays proper respect to his father’s legacy. Teaming with long-time Marley fan, designer Stefano Aldighieri, Rohan Marley has created a clothing line that embraces the lion without exploiting it. Tuff Gong clothing is a welcomed addition to the gear of the street disciple, both lion and lioness. The vintage stitching provides enough comfort to both lounge and march, yet still in tune with the Rastafarian roots. When we sat down with Rohan Marley, he playfully vibed with us about his wife Ms. Hill, the effect of his father on both his clothing and life, and his unspoken dream of bringing his music to the forefront. AllHipHop.com Alternatives: Looking at the clothing on the Tuff Gong website, the designs are crazy! How did you manage to promote the Tuff Gong movement/your father’s legacy and incorporate it into the clothing? Rohan Marley: Well being into clothing myself - you know my sister is a fashion designer and has a [clothing] line - so I like nice things. My old lady [Lauryn Hill], she’s such an impeccable woman that dresses so nice that it rubbed off on me, and I wanted to do something that would have the essence of my family. Looking at my dad, I grew up watching him and loving his style. I always wanted my stuff to fit like his stuff. I was just always inspired by how he wore his clothes differently, and his music - just the whole everything you know? Then I decided - you know someone asked if we had an interest in a clothing line. I’m like, “Yeah we do.” I listened to myself, came up with the ideas, and met with Stefano Aldighieri, whose background is way extensive. So we decided to run with it man and get inspiration from all over the world and my dad mostly, ya know? Yah mon, so that’s where it came from. It came from his style mainly. AHHA: What was it about Stefano’s [Aldighieri] vision that made you want to partner up with him? Rohan: Well I went into a store on Robertson [Street] while I had the concept in my head, and this guy was like, “I’m the contact for this company blasé blase.” So I said, “Give me a card.” He said, “I’m really kind of busy, but there’s this guy [Aldighieri]. He was the Creative Director for Levi’s and the Seven line and he just stopped. He doesn’t want to do anything, he’s just relaxing, but loved your dad. He wanted to take a year off hiatus, but really loved your dad so you never know.” So I said, “Well alright I want to meet him!” So I met with him, told him my ideas and stuff. He said, “Yeah this is good. Let me see what you’re doing. I don’t really wanna do anything right now. I’m just taking a break.” I came back with some sketches and we joined forces. He loved the ideas, the vision and everything. He loves the whole movement, because of where he’s from. His background - he’s very much into the whole Black Panther movement; he’s roots. The both of us saw eye to eye and we adapted our visions together, because we have the same purpose. We didn’t want to work with sweatshops, but all of the things my father stood for. That’s what we wanted to represent with Tuff Gong clothing. So [Stefano] loved my designs and we just moved from there. He put his designs together and now we collaborate in everything we do, from colors to watches. We just do it as a team. It was just a mystic vibe. Marc Jacobs wanted to hire him - he’s a top dude; he’s top quality. AHHA: On the clothing designs, there really isn’t a heavy presence of your father’s face. Was that intentional? Rohan: Yeah because I am Bob Marley. He’s a movement. Yes we have some images of him, but it’s more of a movement. It’s the fit and the spirit of the garment. Like when you put on the clothes, there’s a Marley fit. You see my dad. It’s the whole cut. It’s the Marley vibe and the Marley essence. We have some things of my dad, yes, but we wanted to do more for the product rather than use my dad to sell the garments. He’s already the inspiration anyway. We put on the clothes and it fits like how he wore his clothes. It’s all him. It’s intentional, but not intentional. That’s the way it is. AHHA: When you see images of your father on posters and shirts everywhere, do you see that as paying homage or exploiting his memory? Rohan: It’s not exploiting really, but you can’t control it either. We call that bootlegging. That’s why we chose to have our own [clothing line] that’s not bastardizing my father’s image. Tuff Gong was something he started in the ‘60s, so we continued with the company and run it like how he’d run it. I’m not something that sprung up from the wild. This is the root. We are the roots, and all of the things you see out there, we started these things. All of those Rastafari movements through generations and forefathers, we must continue with [that]…and continue my father’s message. We want the company to be at a point where it can help itself and help people, ya know? You might not see my dad’s image on the garments, but you see his words. In each of our garments, there’s a line from one of his songs in the waistline, so it’s embedded inside of you. AHHA: Your father recently had a street named after him in Brooklyn. Rohan: Bob Marley Boulevard. Yup! I was there! I represented for the whole family there. AHHA: How did that come about? Rohan: I guess the people of Brooklyn really wanted to do it. [The Marley family] didn’t really have anything to do with it. Because of the community being of Caribbean and African descent, they wanted to have a representation of the Gong. When you see the name, it means peace and love. It’s a good thing in a way because things won’t change overnight, but the more visibility the [Marley] name gets, the more people it will help. It’s like seeing the name of Jesus Christ. Not saying that my father was like Jesus Christ, but what he represents, ya know. Like Hallie Selassie I, what his name represents. It stands for unity, togetherness, and strength. That’s what Tuff Gong is. That’s the name he chose to use back in the day. So we’re just continuing the movement. AHHA: Having a father who’s a legend, and a wife who’s a living legend, how has that affected your relationship with music? Rohan: It hasn’t affected, more like infected. [laughs] I’m more comfortable with [music]. You may not know this, but I am also musical. I have some musical qualities and an ear for music, so I contribute in that way. AHHA: Do you think you will ever put your music out there? Rohan: Yeah, if I can find a song that I can sing. I’m like this: if I were a musician, I’d only sing Bob Marley covers. [laughs] I’d only sing his music, because when I sing my father’s music it brings tears to my eyes, so it’s like a feeling it gives me. And yeah, one day I’d like to give that to the people because it’s something special, but for now I will stick to the garments and put my soul and what I believe in into it. But one day, right? Anything is possible. We have the ability to do anything. AHHA: Speaking of fathers, how has fatherhood changed you? Rohan: Fatherhood hasn’t really changed me much or made me more responsible because my purpose is to nurture my seeds and look after the youths. Fatherhood is just something I grew into. It’s about being more open-minded and humble. [Fatherhood] doesn’t change you, it teaches you. AHHA: Will you be making a Tuff Gong children’s line? Rohan: Yeah, once this men’s line gets some wings. [laughs] Once everyone knows about the men’s line we can give it to the sons and daughters. Most definitely though, because we want everyone to be part of the movement. It’s not a fad; it’s a movement. Once you become part of the movement you have to contribute to society and pursue other avenues for our brothers and sisters - Black, White, Chinese, Indian, any color or creed because we work with everyone. Our goal is to help humanity and make a change, someway, somehow. By any means necessary, whether you have to do it through garment, or acting, cooking, anything - walking down the street. AHHA: A while ago there were some ads with you and your brothers modeling clothing. Rohan: This one guy was doing a shoe - a Bob Marley shoe. I thought it was us [Marley family], but it was just a license. I was young at the time. That was back in the day - years, years, ago. Yup, it was me. But I wouldn’t do it again, because we didn’t have any affiliation. It was just a license. Anything you see me in now, we own. [laughs] I’m just joking. AHHA: Will Lauryn [Hill] or your kids be modeling Tuff Gong clothing? Rohan: Well I’m not sure about Ms. Hill. Hopefully one day she’ll have her own clothing line, and she’ll model her own clothing. But once I have children’s garments, of course yes [my children will model]. Or if I find something that she likes. She’s a unique woman, so it has to be something special that she thinks suits her, of course she will indulge. I can’t speak on that because I don’t control her ways. [laughs] AHHA: Ms. Hill always had an amazing fashion sense. Has she offered any input into the clothing? Rohan: She’s one of my inspirations. She teaches me about putting things together. She’s responsible for some of the ideas. She’s a very, very smart woman and has a lot to offer. I always take her advice. Always do. She is very beautiful. I have not enough words to describe her. AHHA: There are definitely not enough words to describe Lauryn Hill. Rohan: I call her Ms. Hill if you don’t mind [laughs]. I don’t call her that, but I like to call her that when I’m not speaking to her [laughs]. I like to keep it on that level that she likes. Missy Elliot wants to be called Missy Elliot. That’s just she goes by now. Ms. Hill. AHHA: Ms. Hill it is. Rohan: And that’s how it is. [laughs] I also played football in Miami - we can change the subject now. [laughs] All of my friends are the best in the league, top notch NFL. They’ll be wearing Tuff Gong as well hopefully. My father’s music is the spirit and the clothing is the flesh. So what you never used to see, you’re gonna see it now. [I]Source http://www.allhiphop.com

@FOCUS Excuse me FOCUS....Last time I checked Monica is still with the father of her children and he is active and present in her life and the life of her children...Not being married doesn't make a woman a single parent nor does it mean that theres no male figure in that childs life...And I don't know where you're from or what kind of fairy tale land you live in but there are lots of people who were raised in single parent homes and turned out just fine...And I know a lot of strong single women who hold it down without a man and do a damn good job...In a perfect world it would be great if every one married before having children but in the real world it just doesn't work that way, and even getting married first won't guarentee that a woman won't still end up by herself, at least Monica can take care of her children.

@Focus-your statement about it being impossible to meet the needs of a child as a single parent??? COMPLETELY FALSE!!! Period. Some single parents are doing ten times better than some households where two parents are present, and they're not complaining. And that's a fact. Nor are some single parents running around looking for a mate just for the sake of maintaining an image, no, they're just raising their children and believe it or not doing a fine job of it. So your statement sounds sooooooo far from the truth. So far from it. You said show you? Let me know when you wanna see. And Monica's name always seems to come up when discussing single parents just because she didn't give the world a wedding to "awe" over. Awe over the fact that she's happy and her kids are well taken care of. Both children are by the same present and active father. I mean really. Regardless of how narrow-minded individuals in our double-standard society wanna look at it, Monica's kids ARE being raised in a TWO-PARENT household. Just because she didn't sign a piece of paper sayin I love you, doesn't mean she's not...."married". Period.

08Onmynewish, Where did you get your statistics? 2 out of 10 boys raise by a single mom only will turn out to be a college grad. The other 9 will be one or more of the following: In jail dead by way of gunshot or street violence a deadbeat dad themselves a Maury Show contestant A man who only gives respect to his mom, and no other woman, because she only taught him to "respect your mom" and that's it, even though she has been through what her son is now putting other women through. Bottom line, more children come out better MORALLY, SPRITUALLY, and more EDUCATED when they have TWO strong parents in the home...and if the child is a boy, having a MAN in the home will boost him as well. When boys get to a certain age, "mommy" doesn't frighten them anymore. When was the last time you heard a man being frightened by a woman? Women are the weaker sex, and men don't take threats from us seriously unless we got a gun pointed at them. With a man, they know that man can take them out possibly. Therefore, they're not always willing to get testy with dad. I'm 5'5, 140lbs, and my husband is 6'2, 300lbs. Who do you think a teenage would be more afraid of statistically? Keep in mind, we're talking about being morally upstanding, (with regards to being raised by single mom) NOT whether or not he can dodge jail. I know plenty of deadbeat dope dealers, users and gang bangers who have NOT gotten caught up yet. In conclusion, not ALL men raised by single moms turn out "bad." There are some who turn out quite well..even better than some who had two parents, but the likelyhood is slimmer than that if they had been raised by TWO parents. Women, for some reason, refuse to accept this.

Get the fuc outta here with the marriage B.S.! Marrriage doesn't confirm or gurantee anything. It doesn't mean the kids will have a healthy enviroment!!! I know a few single moms and they do a damn good job, might not be easy but they do it. Get married for what? So people can say that's a legit couple, or you don't have bastard children. Married couples aren't always better parens than single ones. The gov't created marriage...Let People live,damn. My argument isn't so much about baby mamas but the fact that a lot of people act like marriage is a miracle, like your kids will grow up to be superman. Sometimes married couples produce murderers, rapists and crazies. And some sing parents produce doctors,engineers,scientists,etc...

LIES! Mother against daughters...fathers against sons-2008. It does not MATTER...well, I can't say it just doesn't matter!...but being raised in a two-parent home does guarantee you ANY more of a chance of ANYTHING better in life than being raised in a single parent home. Nor does being raised going to church, etc. What DOES matter MOST is THE PARENT or PARENTS. HOW a child is raised is how a child is raised. I have an aunt, one example, who divorced her husband/children's father, when her youngest was TWO years old. She raised them COMPLETELY by herself with not so much as a boyfriend in their presence. First of all, she divorced him because he was "no good". Second, as we speak, her oldest son is a COLLEGE GRADUATE who has held the SAME job for 13 years being promoted on the regular. He is married with NO biological children, and one stepson. Brand new home, etc. Her youngest? College graduate AS WELL. Owns his own home, he is a school teacher, etc. SO???? What? Should she have "held on to" that HUSBAND of hers? Just because....you know, "the chances" would have probably been greater? No. It is up to the PARENT or PARENTS to raise their children. And let's not act like that's just ONE case, it goes on ALL around. You said REFUSE to accept? No. What society needs to stop doing, is refusing to accept the fact that yes, some children are born unplanned, to single parent homes, but that DOES NOT point them automatically into a path of destruction. That is done BY THE PERSON(S) raising them, whether it be ONE person, two, or six. We were all told it takes a community to raise a child, what the old folks say, but that's not being done nowadays is it? So....what? All our children are headed for some type of trouble? No. Things change, the world changes, and being a responsible parent does NOT include marrying your child's mother/father JUST BECAUSE, it MEANS...loving your child, and if that has to be done by one person then so be it, if it has to be done with the parents in seperate homes, then so be it. Sometimes that IS best for the child. Better being in a LOVING home, than a "home built because of statistics". If a two parent household is sooooo "necessary", the parents that raised these children, although mostly white, that grew up to be serial killers, murderers(u know the ones I'm speaking of), killing their own parents, etc. Wonder what they done wrong? After all, a LOT of them came from....two parent households. Parents had good jobs, etc. What COULD they have done wrong...? Damn. They come from two-parent households rite?

They were married, had good jobs, he shoulda been....like getting ready to go Yale rite??? Haha...on a SCHOLARSHIP of course. Full paid, cuz he was raised in a "MARRIED" environment. No, somewhere along the line, the parents became FIRST, their MARRIAGE came first, and THEN the children. That's exactly what took place. They became soooo focused on MARRIAGE and that image, and that's what it BECAME....an IMAGE. & now look....

@ Miss JNS I understand what you are trying to say but I disagree. In your post you go on and on about a male child "fearing" his father but not being afraid of his mother because you say in general women are the weaker sex. I feel like if you are raising your children right, it doesn't even come down to which parent they are afraid of. Who said anything about children only turning out right if they have a parent to fear? Children benefit from being raised in a loving home where there is mutual respect. I don't have to make my kids fear me. They respect me, love me, and want to do what they are supposed to do out of these feelings. It doesn't matter that I am only 5 feet tall and my son is 12 and taller than me. Once I give him that LOOK he knows what it is. But it all starts from how you raised them from birth. Yes it is good to instill some "healthy fear" in them from the beginning. Some of these parents take so much shit from their kids its unbelievable. I overheard a conversation between a mother and child recently and I wondered why there was so much discussion between them about what she was asking her child to do. When I tell my child they need to do something there is no conversation. It's simply yes mommy... LOL

You can certainly be married and still be a single mother. The assumption is that by marriage a peaceful loving house is created with role model parents. But the world has just as many negative outside influences over adults as it does teens and children. Drugs and alcoholism just makes for yet another cycle of substance abusers. Domestic violence makes for another cycle of men beating women and killing them (check the news for how many women are being killed every single day in your area). Giving a child too much keeps them from appreciating hard work, giving them too little makes them go out and commit crimes out of depravity. What is the magic balance? the secret formula? the thing that creates an enigmatic child from the ghetto into a stellar success an a middle class child into a junkie? No one has this answer. We can assume many things, but as parents in the end all we have is what is before us to work with. We can only put to use the tools at our disposal and continue to strive for the best resources to make our children upwardly mobile. Clearly, some fail and some do just fine. Your child doesn't have to be the next Obama to be a good man. Taking care of his family at a job that pays the bills and appreciating what he has while bringing no harm or ill will to other people is an equally good man. And there are many of those, from all types of family backgrounds and situations. Its myopic to think you can force any two people together and as long as they are around all is gravy. It isn't. Nor do you have the right to wag a finger against anyones life. As far as I can tell, many talking shy.t on this board don't even have adult children and really aren't out of the woods themselves. Until you create or raise the second coming, you really should leave the ASSumptions at home and wish everyone the best in the sacrifices they make for family.

Since 1996, Hill has been in a relationship with Rohan Marley, son of the late reggae music icon Bob Marley. Though she refers to Marley as her husband, it has not been confirmed publicly that they are legally married. According to a October 2003 Rolling Stone article by Touré, Marley never divorced his first wife Geraldine Khawly [8] [9], whom the article stated he married in 1993 and two children; daughter Eden Marley, and son Nicolas Marley[10] [11]. However, in the summer of 2005, Trace magazine interviewed Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley; Marley said none of this was true and that many lies had been written about them. WE DON'T KNOW IF SHE IS MARRIED TO HIM OR NOT...SHE MIGHT BE MARRIED..

There is now a positive transitoin from a world that was filled with lonliness, pain and struggle, to a world of new found discoveries. He grew to learn personal acceptance of those men who were different from himself, and he also learnrd to love. Love for his fellow man exemplified in his realtionship to Mrs. croft. he was saddened by the tragic loss of the aged woman, who proved herself to be a mother figure and a mentor. She shared er time and wisdom with him ang gave him guidance and direction, for she remembered the days she was once young and adapting to the ways of the world. through Mrs. Croft he ws able to discover his stregnth but her ws also able to face his frailities. he discovered a new world of love and romance as the bond was cemented, at the arrival of his pre-arranged marriage with Mala.

He wolud prove to be an example to his son and himself, that if you have the will to survive and a wilingness to learn, you can make it anywhere. The third and final continent is an expresion of his conteiutment with being established and settled in the U.S as a citizen, and though he was a non-american, he was able to partake in the American dream of a college education and a good job with his happy family. As a young man he sought after a fresh start, and ideals of personal sucess, and now as a grown man, be able to look back over the years and see the cumulation of significant and insignificant events has affected his life and his happiness.
