*If Rohan Marley and Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana ever do decide to get married, the famous son of Bob Marley will bring his total number of biological and step-children to nine … at least that we know of.
As previously reported, the wedding was called off because the two don’t want to interrupt their current “intimate and romantic” phase with marriage vows, according to MSN Brazil. However, the same report also cites rumors suggesting that her two boys – Zion, 9, and Luke, 6 – don’t want contact with Marley’s seven other kids, five of whom are with Lauryn Hill.
Isabeli’s sons are too young to know or care about the legacy of their would-be late grandfather-in-law. And even though Rohan was just 9-years-old when his legendary father died, he has many fond memories of their special relationship – which he refers to as “the lion and the lamb.”
*When Rohan Marley popped the question to Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana after seven months of dating, folks, who knew, were quite surprised at the news.
The father five of Lauryn Hill’s six children, was with her for who knows how long, but never even hinted at making it a real commitment.
The couple made the announcement in May, but didn’t set the date, for good reason sources say.
According to reports, the model called off the wedding for now, claiming they are in a romantic period of their relationship and don’t want to interrupt the flow. But others suspect it’s because Rohan’s children don’t know her two boys, Zion and Luke.
Isabelil says her kids don’t really want to mingle with the others, but would rather be with friends.
At the time of their engagement, Isabeli’s mother protested things were happening too fast. Besides, her future hubby could have a few other families floating around out there in the world.
*Rohan Marley, the 39-year-old son of the late reggae icon Bob Marley and father to five of Lauryn Hill’s six children, has just gotten engaged to model Isabeli Fontana, 28, of Brazil, she revealed to a magazine in her home country.
The couple met shortly after Rohan’s separation from Lauryn last year, when it became known that she was expecting a child with another man. Rohan also has two children from his first marriage to Geraldine Khawly.
Isabeli says she and Rohan are considering tying the knot in Ethiopia, where the Rastafarian movement was founded. ”Rohan told me we have to return to the roots so the marriage will last forever,” she told Brazil’s Veja magazine.
According to Veja, Rohan and Isabeli ”see each other very little” because she continues to live in Sao Paulo, Brazil while Rohan resides in New York.
The former University of Miami football player currently runs the Marley Coffee company and is currently on the big screen in the documentary, “Marley,” described as the definitive documentary about his legendary father. It begins with Marley’s nursery school teacher in St. Ann and ends heartbreakingly at the Bavarian clinic where he spent the last months of his life.
“The film, I think, did a great job capturing the human side of my father; who he is as a human being,” he told EURweb. “A human being really appreciative of life, who really loved to love, who really loved to do things to help people in many ways.”
Below, Rohan told us the most shocking thing he learned about the latter part of his father’s life while making the documentary. He also shares a poignant revelation about his father from the nurse who took care of him at the alternative cancer treatment clinic in Bavaria, Germany. [Scroll down to watch the trailer.]
*Hmm, this is somewhat of a shocker. Lauryn Hill’s already had her sixth baby. According to Blackcelebkids.com she delivered a baby boy on Saturday.
“Mother and baby are fine,” a source told the site. He also said that Hill “had a little scare because “the baby came out the womb with the umbilical cord wrapped around his neck. All is well now and everyone is happy.”
Well that’s certainly good to hear. So right about now we world normally congratulate the proud parents. Only we’re not sure who one of them is. That being the daddy.
Of course we say that because it was reported that Lauryn’s estranged husband (?)/mate (?)/father of her other five children (?), Rohan Marley and Hill were no longer together. But now he’s shooting down reports that he dumped Hill for Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana, explaining:
“Ms. Hill is the mother of my children, whom I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for. I would never do that.”
Whatever. We’re just gonna step right over this pile and keep it moving.
