Selah Marley, Daughter Of Lauryn Hill Reveals Childhood Trauma
Selah Marley Lauryn Hill: Selah Marley, daughter of Lauryn Hill with Rohan Marley details what it was like, living with her mother as a child. The youngster described the spankings she received, as “some slave sh*t.”
Much is not known about Lauryn Hill’s personal life. Even her children have managed to stay away from the spotlights and blogs like ours, except Selah.
On Monday, Selah took to Instagram Live to speak on her relationship with her parents. In the two-hour dialogue, she described her childhood as traumatic, having to grow up with an absent father and a mother who used discipline as a means of control.
“She would spank us to no avail,” Selah stated, citing an example. “She was just very angry. So, so, so, so, so, so angry. She was literally not easy to talk to and then half the time we didn’t live with her. I lived with my grandparents half the time… It’s crazy, I’m playing this trauma back in my head as I speak to you.” She would have one of the kids “go get the belt” and when they returned, she would hold their hands up so they were hanging “as she beat us. Literally, just like that.”
“And then the threats, the constant threats… That belt man. That’s that slave sh*t. That was some slavery sh*t. All Black parents were on that sh*t.”
In the end, Selah admits that things calmed down as she became a teenager.
