After the birth of her sixth child, Lauryn Hill wants to clear up a mystery.
Rohan Marley didn't abandon her while she was pregnant, and he's not the baby's father, the singer has said.
The blogosphere has been abuzz after word came last week that the Grammy winner had a baby boy.
Rohan, the father of her five other children, sent a message on Twitter "forwarding all well wishes to Ms Hill on the birth of her new son".
That tweet, along with pictures showing him in an embrace with another woman, created speculation.
Lauryn has rarely discussed their long-term relationship.
She posted a message on Twitter and her website defending Rohan, her partner of 15 years.
The singer said they've had a "long and complex history" but love their five children together.
