"I Am Just Hurting"

Selah Marley is ready to air out a bit of her family’s dirty laundry. Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley’s daughter recently told the public about her parents’ rearing practices that were, in Selah’s opinion, anything but nurturing.


“He is a cool guy but he has his issues,” Selah said of her father. The 21-year-old told fans that she last saw her dad about a year ago. “It’s hard for me to have faith in God because I don’t have faith in my father,” the young adult revealed. “I don’t know God because I don’t have a father.”

Selah did not leave her mother out of the scrutiny. The 21-year-old told her fans, “My mom would go away for three months at a time and we were being raised by nannies.”

“When my mom got angry , she would spank us and she would spank us pretty brutally to no avail.”

Some wondered why Selah Marley found the need to make her family’s personal matters public. “I just want to stop creating destruction in my life,” the young adult said. “I want to sustain healthy relationships,” Selah added. “I am just hurting. I have been hurting.”

Selah went on to tell her fans, “I am scared to be like [my parents] because I am like if this is what it’s going to be, then end it now. I can’t with it.”

Lauryn Hill has five children with Rohan Marley. The R&B singer has six kids in all. Rohan Marley has eight kids. Stay tuned for more celebrity family news!
