Rohan Marley Is ENGAGED...To His Model Boo Isabeli Fontana

Artist Rohan Marley--Lauryn Hill's ex and father to 5 of her kids--just got engaged to his girlfriend of about a year, model Isabeli Fontana.  The latest development in this alleged love triangle inside...

39-year-old Rohan Marley has made his reggae love official for his 28-year-old Brazilian model girlfriend Isabeli.  The twosome, who hit up the 2012 Met Gala last week (above pic), has confirmed their engagement to the Brazilian newspaper, Terra.

Last year, Rohan denied being the father of Lauryn's 6th child--even though many believed they were still very much together in private--and started dating Isabeli while Lauryn was pregnant.

Now, Isabeli has confirmed the two are headed to the alter...in Ethiopia--the birthplace of Rastafarian culture...at some point in the near future.  Isabeli told the newspaper:

"Rohan told me that we must return to their origins so that the marriage will last forever."

Oh....ok.  This will be Rohan's second marriage (his first was to his college girlfriend) and Isabeli's third marriage.  Yes, third.  She has two sons--1 from each previous marriage.

According to Huff Post:

Marley, a former college football player, now runs a coffee company and has a line of headphones. Fontana has modeled for Victoria's Secret, Escada, Dolce & Gabbana, Revlon, Ralph Lauren and others, as well as serving as the face of Viktor & Rolf's Flowerbomb fragrance. She also appeared in the 2011 Pirelli calendar, and she recently received waaaay too much self-tanner in that now-infamous H&M bikini ad. The couple recently attended the 2012 Met Gala together.

Now now...we can't fault

Now now...we can't fault Lauryn for falling in love with a deab-beat-dad who will always looking for greener grass. This is part of her soul's journey. She is the one that has evolved. Not him. God has greater plans for her.

Yes ...the dead-beat-dat

Yes ...the dead-beat-dat rumor is true. I heard from a reliable source that Lauren always maintained (financially) her children on her own with very little help from him and Rohan has been milking her money for some time now.

I love Lauryn Hill and have prayed for her to evolve for years. However, Isabeli obviously set a standard.that Lauryn did not. Why buy the milk when you can get the cow for free? Lauryn never set the tone that Rohan should do right by her and marry her. What is she doing besides smoking weed and having babies? Not to mention, she has not been mentally stable for quite some time. Then again, this could be a visit from karma (remember she was with Wyclef Jean while he was married).....

Woe....actually it is crazy

Woe....actually it is crazy that she have all these kids n not be married after the second if thts the case he would have had to marry me sorry..its true mr.anonymous that blackmen do marry outside race for whatever reason but I'm wondering u said niggers are u white?watch ur words I can see why u hiding in plain sight.two a lot of times our blackmen marry but the grl who they chose been on had more dicks in her thn a little bit.so just cause u marry outside ur race dnt mean the grass is greener.then blackmen are so stupid have of them dnt even respect other cultures and barely understand our history so to me I thnk they look foolish whn marrying someone and it dnt work.now I guarantee u they will be heading for divorce to they both been married too many times and got to many kids he look stupid (marley)cause all his kids born out of wedlocck.I. love my blackmen I just wouldn't marry a blackman like marley..lol ikir

I see all of these comments

I see all of these comments about black women and the state of our relationships and morality. What do you all have to say about this woman he's marrying? 28, 2 divorces and a child from each. Is it ok as long as she gets married for a little while first? What if each was a shotgun wedding that ended in...surprise...divorce? This woman is a saint and better than others because she chose to obtain a breakable, dissolvable LEGAL (not moral or religious) contract before carelessly reproducing with men she obviously spent little time with (relatively)?

The problem here is that most

The problem here is that most people commenting, are placing the blame squarely on Lauryn; because she became a mother of 6 children without getting a commitment. I lay the blame on him, he was a low life in his dealings with her IMHO... but too many women decided she deserved this. I wish many of us here remember that mothers day was just last Sunday.

IT IS AN OLD SAYING WHEN YOU

IT IS AN OLD SAYING WHEN YOU GIVE THE MILK AWAY FREE DO NOT EXPECT RESPECT FROM THE GUY YOU ARE SLEEPING WITH. THIS GUY NEVER WANTED HER BLACK ASS ANYWAY. SHE WAS A FOOLLLLLL TO HAVE ALL THESE CHILDREN BY THIS UGLY MOTHERFUCKER AND THINK HE WOULD MARRY HER; SHE IS CRAZY. THIS GUY DOES NOT RESPECT HIS CHILDREN OR HIS BABY'S MAMA. GRANDMA WAS RIGHT HOLD OUT UNTIL HE GETS THE RING HONEY AND MARRIES YOU. EXPECT THIS TO HAPPEN TO YOU WHEN YOU OUT THERE BIRTHING ALL THESE KIDS FOR THESE SORRY AS NIGGERS. BLACK MEN WHO HAVE MADE IT DOES NOT WANT BLACK WOMEN ANYMORE. THEY WILL GIVE THE WORLD TO THE WHITE WOMAN, OR A CHICK THAT LOOKS WHITE. BRAZIL HAS THAT NEGRO BLOOD AND COMES IN MANY SHADES LIKE THE AMERICAN BLACKS. SO, BLACK WOMEN YOU BETTER START DATING AND MARRING OTHER RACES OF MEN. THIS GUY JUST USED HER AS A BABY MAKING MACHINE AND SHIT DIRECTLY IN HER AND THEIR CHILDREN'S FACES. THIS IS A LESSON TO BE LEARNED. TAKE NOTES LADIES!

WOW! Folks just KNOW what is

WOW! Folks just KNOW what is going on in someone elses bedroom. Don't they!?! I can tell you this, as a friend of Rohan. HE DID NOT MAKE L BOOGIE GO CRAZY! No one can do that. You have to be responsible for your own life. He and Lauryn are still cool. and they LOVE thier children. Sometimes things just don't work out. Just cuz you have children does not make a relationship work. I know Ro has a good heart, but even I can not speak on his relationships. Only he and that person can. People grow apart. You wanna blame him for not putting a ring on L Boog. But if that is the case, she should have stop having babies. My daughters father was not there for her birth and did not want to be a family. Do you think he ever hit it again? HELLS NO! No one has the right to say someone is dumb for thier choices. It is THIER choice! I wish Ro and his lady happiness just as I do Lauryn. ONE LOVE PEOPLE!!

Okay, some people on here are

Okay, some people on here are saying. Maybe Lauryn just wanted a relationship and kids without an official marriage. Or you folks are saying some people want to have a lot of kids. They can afford them. Some are saying he was inconsiderate. Okay here are my thoughts. SOME PEOPLE HAVE BABIES TO TRY TO KEEP A MAN WITH THEM, PUTTING THEMSELVES INTO SITUATIONS WHERE THEY CREATE BABY AFTER BABY AFTER BABY FOR THE WRONG REASONS, then they go apeshiznit crazy because it's a lot to handle. To the people stating Mr. Marley was inconsiderate and showed no respect, UHMMM WHO WOULD WANT SOMEONE TO BE WITH THEM ONLY OUT OF CONSIDERATION OR RESPECT? NOT ME...who does that shiznit? really? who does it? I wanna know. All in all we don't know what went on, but judging and yes i'm judging from her crazy antics and the amount of childrens, yup childrens she's popped out...it appears to be a case of Ms. Hill poppin' out da babes to keep Mr. Marley around...and again, who does that? Honestly I see a lot of women do it..to try to get the man to marry them or to try to at the very least keep ties with them. If you have a history of being mentally unbalanced or unstable, one would think you wouldn't want to create more instability or bring children into ALL DAT.....this is just nonsense to me..all the way around..NONSENSE...Rohan may have dogged the other two and been all around and sleepin with everyone..but could it be that he's found the one? I mean there is a possibility. Also for the defenders of Lauryn...perhaps she was pinchin Rohan in the middle of the night and he got tired of the pinches.....I'm speaking figuratively. Maybe she got tired of him, I doubt it (esp. since she was poppin' out them babes even in the midst of her crazy state of mind and crazy periods). She's gotta close the door to the cat trap and let that thing sleep for a while. Sheesh, I know cats have nine lives and all but dayum.....

Why are you badmouthing Ms. Hill? Who is he to have sex with her to eyaculation and not care of the consequences and do it over and over again. If she was unstable or not, if he were a man of conscious thinking he would of had a vasectomy!!!

Wow, if ever there was a

Wow, if ever there was a cautionary tale this is it. For all those who keep trying to defend Lauryn's honour and speculating that maybe she didn't want to marry him to defend her assests - whatever. That's what pre-nups are for. And besides, if a woman is going to get pimped financially by a man it's going to happen whether you're married or not. What, she wouldn't give him her money but she'd have a tribe of b'st*rd kids for him? No woman sets out to be a single mother to a tribe of kids without some expectation of marriage down the line - unless she's trifling to start with and if you listen to the lyrics of Laruyn's tracks nothing she sang suggested she was. I don't believe marriage is for everyone - Badu is a case in point. That woman truly is marching to the beat of her own drum and I don't believe she regrets her choices even if no-one else approves. However, this doesn't appear to be Lauryn. Sorry, but there has to be a part of her wondering, 'why not me?'
