Rohan Marley

Rohan Anthony Marley (born May 19, 1972, Jamaica) is the son of late reggae artist Bob Marley and Janet Hunt. He is a member of the Rastafari movement.

A 1991 graduate of Miami Palmetto Senior High School, he later played linebacker at the University of Miami. He played pro football in Canada for the now defunct Ottawa Rough Riders.

Marley and musician Lauryn Hill met in 1996. Hill has referred to Marley as her husband, though the legal status of their relationship is unknown. According to an October 2003 "Rolling Stone" article, Marley never divorced his first wife.
