Lauryn Hill is speaking out about her new baby – and warning people not to make assumptions about his father.

Hill, who welcomed her sixth child last weekend, responded to speculation that Rohan Marley, Bob Marley’s son and the father of her other five children, is her new son’s dad. And by mentioning the five children they have together, she seems to rule Marley out as the parent of her youngest child, who’s reportedly named Baby Boy Marley.

“Mr. Marley and I have a long and complex history about which MANY inaccuracies have been reported since the beginning,” the soul singer, 36, writes on her official Web site. “To speculate without the facts can only cause people to form WRONG conclusions.”

Another rumor she’d like to clear up: Marley did not abandon her while she was pregnant with his child, she says, “contrary to the numerous reports.”
