Who is Lauryn Hill's baby daddy?

Color us confused.

Singer Lauryn Hill just gave birth to her sixth child - a son that a source told CNN she's been referring to as "Baby Boy Marley."

Blogs had been buzzing ever since her long-time love Rohan Marley, who Hill has five children with, tweeted during the pregnancy that he was not the father.

“2 things, I’m not married and I don’t have anyone expecting anything," Marley tweeted.

Not to mention that there has been lots of speculation that the pair are no longer even a couple and Marley has moved on to dating a Brazilian model.

Now, Hill has posted a message on her official Twitter account which may, or may not, back up both claims.

"Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning," the message reads. "To speculate without the facts can only cause people to form WRONG conclusions."

Furthermore, the reclusive singer says both she and Marley "value privacy and for that reason defend and preserve our right to it."

"Contrary to numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child," the tweet continues. "We have had long periods of separation over the years but our 5 children together remain a joy to us. Thank you for your concern and I appreciate all of the well wishes regarding the birth of my new son."

With all this drama Ms. Hill we can't keep our eyes off of you.

    At one time there was an issue with women having children that they couldn't support. I don't think Lauryn will be needing any of Ur tax money to care for any of her babies. She can continue to have as many as she can care for.....and why is the father of her child of such interest to u all.....its her ****** and she gives it to who ever she pleases. This has no bearings whatsoever on any of u. This is one of the things I pity, for those in the lime light, no privacy....and always exposed to public judgement.

    Call me old fashioned, but I liked it better when a woman's husband was the father to her child. Better for the baby, too http://bit.ly/qcXCDy

    Really who cares who the father is, most probably several different ones.

    Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child," the tweet continues – She has stated that this is HIS child. Right?
    "We have had long periods of separation over the years but our 5 children together remain a joy to us. – Since she stated OUR 5 children remain a joy. That means the 6th is not his right?
    Thank you for your concern and I appreciate all of the well wishes regarding the birth of my new son." – Did not say the birth of OUR new son. Does that mean that the child is not Mr. Marley's?
    Who knows? She should have had her press agent or someone look over her typed statement before she tweeted it. It is going to stir up more interest in finding out who her childs father is.

    @Angela you said the operative word 'white',now I know everybody's going to start in about O.J.which was another situation.Dream team defense,all kinds of botched prosecution,hostile witness(Kato).I mean this was a child they could have worked harder and that woman would still be in jail just like O.J.

      O.J. was able to get away with murder. He thought he was to big for his britches and tried to pull an Ocean 11 and that's why his dumba** is in jail now.

      I suppose but to talk about it when it has no bearing on the article is ambiguous. To each his or her own. Free speech is what it is all about.

    Why are we talking about race? The article is not about race at all. We all know that greatness and trash comes in all colors.

      Race always becomes an issue in the America's. Even in the Justice System and NFL, No matter how many sleaze bag white men that murder their wives such as Scott & Drew Peterson, all white people still talk about O J. Drew Peterson the White Cop has possibly killed (3) wives but all u whites want to talk about is O J. Drew still has not been convicted. In the NFL, the Cardinals signed White Boy Kolb to a $60 million dollar contract $22 million guaranteed while the #1 pick & Black Heisman trophy winner signs for one tenth of that amount. NOW U TELL ME THAT RACE DOES NOT MATTER IN AMERICA. There are still White Coaches in NFL and College who refuses to sign black QB'S. STEVE SPURRIER IS ONE

      Carol M. Braun -Politician, Lawyer, Educator, Edward Brooke -U.S. Senator, Berry Gordy- Founder of Motown, Eric Holder – US Attorney General, Daniel James – Pilot -U.S. Air Force General, Sheila Johnson – Co-founder of BET, Barbara Jordan – Lawyer, Politician, Educator, Thurgood Marshall – Supreme Court Judge, Barack Obama – US President, Colin Powell – Secretary of State, Condeleeza Rice – Professor of Political Economy -former U.S. Secretary of State. The preceding names are a few accomplished African Americans. There are people from many ethnic backgrounds in the U.S. and not one can say that there entire race or even half has never been to jail or been involved in any questionable behavior. It's a fact you can not look at a person and determine whether they will end up in the slammer. Look at O.J. and that fiasco of a trial – Look at Casey and that hot mess of a so called trial.
