Lauryn Hill‘s daughter Selah Marley says her mother’s form of discipline was slave like.
Selah, daughter of Lauryn, 45, and musician Rohan Marley, 48, claims her mother’s form of discipline involved a belt and lots of threats.
In a 2-hour video on Instagram, Selah, 20, described the beatings she suffered as a minor child.
“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.”
Selah, pictured with Lauryn and her grandmother, Valerie Hill, praised her “amazing” mom, but she described the legendary singer as a single mother who wasn’t always nurturing and often lashed out in anger at her children.
“My mom is an amazing woman, but she obviously didn’t do everything right. 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.”
