Personal Life

Rohan Marley was born on 19th May 1972 in Kingston, Jamaica. He is the son of legendary reggae artist Bob Marley and Jane Hunt. He used to live with his father’s first wife Rita and then went on to live with Bob Marley’s mother after his father died of cancer in 1981.

He graduated from Miami Palmetto Senior High School in 1991. On 18th March 1993, Marley married his then girlfriend Geraldine Khawly while he was still in college. Together they had a daughter, Eden, and also a son, Nico. In 2017, Nico played as a linebacker at Tulane and was signed by the Washington Redskins.

In 1996, Marley met the musician Lauryn Hill and the couple have five children together: Zion David, Selah Louise, Joshua Omaru, John Nesta, and Sarah. Marley’s relationship with Hill ended in 2009. In 2013, Hill served a three-month prison sentence for tax evasion during which period Marley took custody of the five children.

Even though Marley never married Hill, she kept referring to him as her husband for many years. As per the American biweekly magazine ‘Rolling Stone,’ Marley never divorced Khawly. But in 2011, he cleared everything up by producing a Haitian divorce decree which showed the proof that he had divorced Khawly in 1996.

He was once briefly engaged to Brazilian supermodel Isabeli Fontana, but the engagement did not last long and ended in 2013.
