Lauryn Hill responds to Wyclef Jean's
Lauryn Hill has kept mum about Wyclef Jean's memoir "Purpose: An Immigrant's Story," in which he shone some light on their affair when The Fugees were still around. Wyclef claimed that Hill led him to believe she was pregnant with his child, but Rohan Marley, who was her partner for eight years, denies these allegations and says that Wyclef was running his mouth for publicity.
Lauryn Hill has finally spoken up about the situation, albeit covertly. Hill, who is currently touring with Nas, brought up the subject at a Dallas show recently, though she never directly named Wyclef. She said that some people keep silent because they know that the talkative ones are playing a game.
“Be careful how you judge. A lot of deception out there. A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there. A whole lot and notice after all the people that just talk, talk, talk, who’s the silent one? And you know why? Let me tell you why I don’t really chat back. Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme. So when they, under pressure, attack me I love them still."
Hill, who was charged with tax evasion this summer, went on to say she wouldn't take part in an oppressive system and knows to be patient in waiting for the truth.
"I’m not going to play my hand like the suppressive system would have me play my hand. Because I know the oppression that took place in Haiti and Jamaica and America and Africa and Europe. So just be patient…And the truth will always surface.”
