They were once the closest of friends, but now- after years of very public feuding- it seems there is no love lost between ‘The Fugees’ bandmates Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean.
A fact many of the group’s fans have found difficult to accept, their war of words reached all new heights this year when Jean claimed in his autobiography – ‘Purpose’- that Hill had tricked him into believing a child she was carrying during their time together was his, only to reveal that it wasn’t upon the baby’s arrival.
He also claimed…that she is bipolar.
Now, Lauryn has broken her silence and responded to his claims with:
“When you are on the other side of liberation, just make sure you are not late. Be careful how you judge, there is a lot of deception out there. A lot of misunderstanding out there. A lot of miscommunication out there. A lot of false information out there. And notice, out of all the people who talk talk talk, who’s the silent one. There’s a lot of chat, but me….
And you know why? Let me tell you why I don’t chat back. Because I know that my brothers and my sisters are often times pawns in a bigger scheme so when they, under pressure, attack me, I love them still. It’s called the high road. Try taking it sometimes.
I’m not going to play my hand like the suppressive system would have me play my hand. Because I know [about] the oppression that took place in Haiti, and Jamaica, and America, and Africa and Europe. So just be patient. The truth always surfaces and especially, all you black folks out there who have had black mothers who carried you through thick and thin, when the system wanted to call them crazy, just remember that…
You know I know I’m not crazy, that’s why I can use the word so freely. Crazy like a fox? Ahead of the curve. People don’t like people that’s ahead of the curve but unfortunately that’s not my problem.”
