Last week Wyclef Jean released an excerpt from his autobiography 'Purpose an Immigrant's Story' where he dropped the bomb that the Fugees broke up because Lauryn Hill lied to him about the paternity of her oldest son [click here if you missed that].
Wyclef says Lauryn lead him to believe he was the father when actually the father was Rohan Marley. Rohan says Wyclef is telling lies to sell his book...
Rohan, who dated Lauryn from '96 to 2011, and tells TMZ ... Wyclef "knew from jump that was my son from the day [Lauryn] was pregnant."
Rohan -- one of Bob Marley's sons, and a former football stud at U. of Miami -- does admit Lauryn and Wyclef screwed around before he came on the scene, but says he's confident it ended because Wyclef actually played matchmaker ... "They were definitely not messing around, or he would never have given me the okay."
He also says he and Lauryn were together in studio sessions night and day back then so there wouldn't even be time for her to have the alleged affair.
Rohan added he thinks Wyclef is "just saying false things to get book headlines" -- and he has no plans to talk it out with 'Clef because "he knows he is fronting himself.
For his part, Wyclef tells TMZ, "There is no way that I would have shown up in the hospital in that circumstance to wait for a baby to be born if it was not mine. The idea of a memoir is to tell the truth. I know that often the truth hurts, but a lie hurts even more."
