Two days later, Marley addressed his daughter’s comments in a statement.

“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.”

Selah explained that she didn’t intend for followers to send her parents hateful comments.

“I spoke on that subject for two hours,” she said. “It’s complex. It’s a very complex topic, and really what I was discussing was how a lack of unity in the household can create severe trauma that you’re not even aware of.”
