Lauryn Hill’s ex, Rohan Marley, partner of about 15 years who fathered five of her six children is set to marry Brazilian supermodel Isabeli Fontana.
The “Ex-Factor” singer’s ex has been dating the Victoria’s Secret model since October of last year after his split with Hill; right around the time when he tweeted he had not fathered the gorgeous singer’s sixth child.
While no tweet or word has come from the son of the reggae legend Bob Marley, the-soon-to-be-wife has confirmed the nuptials will most likely take place in Ethiopia, birthplace of Haile Selassie, the centerpiece of the Rastafarian religion.
“Rohan told me we have to return to the roots so the marriage will last forever,” the 28-year-old told Brazil’s Veja Magazine.
Rohan, who runs the Marley Coffee Company, has seven children, besides five with the “Nothing Even Matters” singer; the 39-year-old has two with his first wife, Geraldine Khawly while Fonatana has two children from previous marriages.
Though Isabeli, who was ranked as one of the world’s top earning models by Forbes in 2008, seems over the moon about her third marriage, her mother has some trepidation.
“I think everything is happening too fast, but everything has a different rhythm with Isabeli.”
While that statement says little, it is loaded, another concern for Fontana’s mom could be that the two lovebirds reportedly don’t get a chance to see each other often. Rohan currently lives in New York while Isabeli calls Sao Paulo home for now.
So, what are your thoughts on the Rohan and Isabelli union to be?
