Wyclef Jean says Lauryn Hill lied about baby




Digging up dirt on 1990s hip-hop groups always is a sure sign we're up to date on the latest, so here's some dish about how the Fugees broke up: Apparently it was when Lauryn Hill lied and said Wyclef Jean was the father of her first baby. And we all know it was Pras Michel who suffered from that the most.

Jean says he had to find out later that Bob Marley's son Rohan was the daddy: "In that moment something died between us," Jean writes in his new book, Purpose, the New York Post reports. "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. She could no longer be my muse. Our love spell was broken."

The Fugees broke up after that, in 1997. It must have had a lasting effect on Hill, too, because she just pleaded guilty to tax evasion. Maybe she learned it from Wyclef, who has been having plenty of problems with his Yele Haiti charity, since it has a hard time, you know, getting money to needy Haitians. Pity all the kids tied up in this one.
