Rohan Marley, the son of reggae legend Bob Marley and ex of Lauryn Hill, has gotten engaged to Brazilian Sports Illustrated model Isabeli Fontana.
Fontana said the couple plans to wed in Ethiopia, where the Rastafarian movement was founded. According to Contact Music, she told Veja magazine:
“Rohan told me we have to return to the roots so the marriage will last forever.”
Fontana, 28, has been divorced twice, to model Alvaro Jacomossi and actor/model Henri Castelli. The model has a son from each of those marriages.
Marley, 39, dated former Fugees singer Lauryn Hill, 36, from 1996-2011.
Hill often referred to him as her husband, though their relationship status was never revealed until they broke up. The couple had five children together.
He also has two children from his previous relationship with Geraldine Khawly, who he married during college and was still married to when he met Hill.
He made headlines last year when it was reported that Marley left Hill for Fontana while Hill was pregnant with another child, allegedly to another man.
“Contrary to the numerous reports, Mr. Marley did not abandon me while pregnant with his child. We have had long periods of separation over the years but our 5 children together remain a joy to both of us,” Hill said, refuting that rumor.
Congrats to Rohan and Isabeli!
