This is one of them “Oooh, chile!” moments we usually try to refrain from, but we’re passing along this shameless, gossipy tidbit from Wyclef‘s autobiography Purpose: An Immigrant’s Story (available tomorrow, Sept 18) since it addresses a key, and unresolved moment in 1990s rap: why the Fugees imploded at the height of their success. Grab your popcorn!
According to ‘Clef in Purpose:
“I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby [Zion] was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that.”
Of course, as anyone keeping Score knows (sorry, sorry, sorry), the burgers are Ronald’s but the seed is Rohan Marley’s:
“In that moment something died between us.”
So WJ was left feeling all kinds of ways (including betrayed) and the demise of the group began. Damn. But instead of feeling all bad, take a check out some Fugees-in-their-heyday photos (in the gallery above) to cheer you up a lil’? See? All better.
