Former Fugees leader and humanitarian Wyclef Jean (pictured left) has written a new autobiography that will blow the lid off his extramarital affair with former bandmate songstress Lauryn Hill (pictured).  The book, ‘Purpose:  An Immigrant’s Story,’ which is being released on Tuesday, dares to discuss the reason why his love and business relationship with Hill was brought to a bitter end, reports the New York Post.

It was no secret that Jean and Hill were an ‘item’ in the mid-’90s during their stint in the Fugees group.  At the time of the affair, Jean was married to Marie Claudinette Pierre, whom he has remained with for more than 18 years. Jean got together with Hill the same year he married Pierre and stayed with the trio’s lead singer for about three years until a pregnancy caused a irreparable rift in their relationship.

Wyclef Jean Lauryn HillIn the book, Jean provides shocking details about Hill’s first pregnancy and how her alleged lies about the paternity of the baby lead to the demise of their affair.

Jean claims that Hill tricked him in to believing that he was the Father of her firstborn, Zion David. Eventually, Jean found out  that Hill’s actual baby daddy was in fact Rohan Marley, the son of legendary reggae artist Bob Marley.

Hill and Marley met in the summer of 1996, and they went on to have five children together.

Meanwhile, finding out the truth about the paternity of Hill’s child resulted in the ending of their relationship that had been reportedly fraught with unforgivable betrayal.

Jean writes:

In that moment something died between us. I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that.

The Haitian-born Jean says that Hill’s lies also led to the band’s eventual 1997 breakup.

“She could not longer be my muse,” he wrote. “Our love spell was broken.”
