22-year-old daughter of Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley, son of Bob Marley has opened up about growing up and the trauma she suffered from her parents relationship.
Speaking during an Instagram live session on Monday, she opened up about what it did to her, having an absent father and a mother who was never satisfied and disciplined her for the slightest error.
She stated that the blame for what she endured falls at the foot of her absent father and her mother’s relationship with her then-partner, Rohan Marley.
“Honestly guys, I’m just hurting. I can’t even front that I’m not. I’ve been hurting for so much of my life and so much of my life has been me avoiding how much I’m really hurting just from the circumstances.
Speaking about her mom, Lauryn Hill, she said, “She was just very angry. So, so, so, so, so, so angry. She was literally not easy to talk to and then half the time we didn’t live with her. I lived with my grandparents half the time… It’s crazy, I’m playing this trauma back in my head as I speak to you.
“She would have one of the kids “go get the belt” and when they returned, she would hold their hands up so they were hanging “as she beat us. Literally, just like that.
“And then the threats, the constant threats… That belt man. That’s that slave sh*t. That was some slavery sh*t. All Black parents were on that sh*t.” Photo Credit: Instagram
