Rohan Marley Apologizes to Daughter Selah After She Speaks on Childhood Trauma

Rohan Marley has broken his silence after he and Lauryn Hill’s daughter Selah live broadcast from Monday.

On Monday Selah Marley, the daughter of Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley, broadcasted for two hours on Instagram Live.

The 20-year-old addressed the childhood trauma she’s been dealing with over the years, stemming from arguments between her parents. After the “worst part” of the video surfaced on media outlets, Hill released a follow-up video explaining that the comments came from a “place of healing.” View the follow-up below.

 

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.”
