It's safe to assume that many were surprised when Lauryn Hill's daughter Selah Marley went on Instagram Live and said she was traumatized by her mother's frequent beatings.
Selah's father is Rowan Marley, Bob Marley's son, and the 21-year-old said that her parents constantly argued, which she's still affected by. She also called her dad an absentee parent.
Rowan responded to the claim of not being around in a statement that was released through his publicist.
"Selah's expression on Instagram is a healing process for her," he said. "I'm very happy that she is fearless in her expression. I love her very much and do apologize for any contributions I may have added by arguing in front of her as a child. I've grown as a man, a spiritual being and a father. I am constantly growing and will teach my children to always take the higher road in any disagreements. I will be there for her no matter how many hours, days, months or years it will take. I will be the best Dad that I can be. One Love."
Considering how private Lauryn is known to be, do you think she's pissed at Selah or empathetic like her dad seems to be?
