LAS VEGAS, NV - JANUARY 07: Rohan Marley arrives at the House of Marley booth during CES 2016 at the Las Vegas Convention Center on January 7, 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

As we previously reported, Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley’s daughter, Selah Marley recently took to social media to share her experience with childhood trauma. In Selah’s video, she even likened Hill’s discipline to slavery and faulted Rohan for being absent.

Now, Rohan has apologized to Selah publicly, as The Jasmine Brand reports. “I love her very much and do apologize for any contributions I may have added by arguing in front of her as a child. I’ve grown as a man, a spiritual being and a father. I am constantly growing and will teach my children to always take the higher road in any disagreements,” Rohan wrote. “I will be there for her no matter how many hours, days, months, or years it will take. I will be the best Dad that I can be. One Love.”

Selah had said in her video regarding her father, “I have a form of split personality to some degree, I mean not to like you know diagnose myself, but just a form of split because it’s like, a part of me stopped growing at the age that my dad left. Whenever that stopped, I feel like something just stopped or maybe it never grew, it never developed… especially when it comes to men, like males in my life.”

“They bring out this dark, dark, dark thing inside of me because I feel like I need them…like I hurt them because I’m mad at them, because I’m mad at my father for not being around but I need them because I don’t have a father so I need someone.”
