Wyclef has revealed that he had an affair with the Fugees star, Lauryn Hill.
Wyclef’s revelations are reported in an article published in Vibe Magazine. Not only did he and Hill have a relationship, Hill made him believe for a while that he was the father of her first child.
It is widely known that Wyclef and Hill’s relationship has deteriorated in recent years. Now, Wyclef has spoken out about the facts behind the pairs’ animosity towards one another.
The news comes from an excerpt taken from Wycelf Jean’s forthcoming autobiography, Purpose: An Immigrant’s Story. The Haitian native has revealed that he was in a relationship with Lauryn Hill before the Fugees broke up. Wyclef explained that the cause of his break up with Hill was the fact that she misled him over the parentage of his first child, telling him that the baby was his, when, in fact, it belonged to Rohan Marley.
"In 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 couldn’t forgive that," he wrote. "She could not longer be my muse. Our love spell was broken."
