*Rohan Marley has apologized to his daughter Selah for ‘any contributions’ his ‘arguing’ with her mother Lauryn Hill – coupled with his absence- may have had in her life. 

Selah, 21, criticized her parents in a Instagram Live stream on Monday (August 10), during which she opened up about the “trauma” she endured as a child with her “angry” mother and daddy issues.  At one point, she tells fans that she would Google what it was like to have a father. 

“Honestly guys, I’m just hurting. I can’t even front that I’m not,” she said. “I’ve been hurting for so much of my life and so much of my life has been me avoiding how much I’m really hurting just from the circumstances.” 

Rohan, the son of Bob Marley, is apologizing for his behavior via a statement released through his rep, Hollywoodlife.com reports.  “Selah’s expression on Instagram is a healing process for her,” he said. “I’m very happy that she is fearless in her expression.”

“I love her very much and do apologize for any contributions I may have added by arguing in front of her as a child,” he continued in the statement. “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.  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 followed up with an Instagram Live chat on Aug. 11, in which she defended her parents from critics.

“My mother is a human, she’s not a perfect person but I’m not going to feed off all the negativity,” she said. “In the past 10 years she’s healed so much and I’ve watched her evolve and the same thing with my father. I mean he did some BS lately but my father, he’s healing as well. I came on and saw how the media misconstrued what I said, that is why I came on live it was a one dimensional narrative.”

She also explained that she’s now very close with her mom.

“Me and my mother are very close. She’s texting me as we speak,” she said. “Anger is a secondary emotion for sadness. I think for me growing up, remember I grew up with all brothers, so I’m like we’re fighting, we are fighting so I just learned how to be tough, I was always tough. So now coming back I’m learning how to cry again. Learning how to forgive is a big one, learning how to love, learning how to not be angry. And what I’m even learning now is how many walls I put up.”

Lauryn and Rohan dated from 1996 until 2008 and have five kids together. Lauryn also has a child from another relationship.

*British pop star Ed Sheeran is being sued for copyright infringement for lifting parts of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On” for his track “Thinking Out Loud.” 

The 1973 song was co-written by Ed Townsend, whose family filed a lawsuit against Sheeran in 2016, accusing him of lifting the “melody, harmony and rhythmic components” from Gaye’s track, per ABC News

Sheeran initially responded to the suit by claiming public domain gave him permission to use the chord progressions and drum patterns for “Let’s Get It On.”

During a hearing on Tuesday in front of Sony Records, Townsend’s daughter was joined by music icon George Clinton to fight for Black artists.

“These offenses aren’t just taking place in the streets against black individuals in this country. They’re taking place in the boardrooms. They’re taking place in meetings where there’s no representation,” said Keisha Rice, the attorney for Kathryn Townsend.

“Theft and bullying has been the only priority of the record labels’ agenda. It stops today, Sony, Atlantic and all the rest of them. We’re coming for our 40 acres and a mule plus and interest. And know that we’re not going to be silent. It don’t stop till my casket drop,” said Kathryn Townsend.

“Theft of the music is the new sharecroppers,” said George Clinton. “Not only do they take the music and the land back, they take the 40 acres and the mule back. They get it all from the money that’s being made from IP (intellectual property). So the artists don’t have a chance. I have 20 artists in my band who never got paid for all those samples you heard.”

The hearing for the lawsuit against Sheeran has a trial date set for Nov. 9.

Townsend’s estate is seeking songwriting credit and a portion of the profits from Sheeran’s song.

Outrage Over Barkley & Shaq Siding with Cops in Breonna Taylor Case / WATCH

*Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are catching heat on social media after saying the police killing of Breonna Taylor is different from George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.

“It’s just bad the young lady lost her life, but we do have to take into account that her boyfriend did shoot at the cops and shot a cop,” Barkley said during NBA on TNT, referencing Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, who fired a warning shot at people he thought were breaking into the home. 

“So, like I said, even though I’m really sorry she lost her life, I don’t think we can just put this in the same situation as George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery.”

Barkley is now facing a flood of angry comments from social media users. And so is Shaq, after he agreed with the NBA star’s comments. 

“I have to agree with Charles, this one is sort of lumped in,” O’Neal said. “You have to get a warrant signed and some states do allow no-knock warrants. And everyone was asking for murder charges. When you talk about murder, you have to show intent. A homicide occurred and we’re sorry a homicide occurred. When you have a warrant signed by the judge, you are doing your job, and I would imagine that you would fire back.”

Barkley went on to condemn calls to abolish and defund the police.

“I hear these fools on TV talk about ‘defund the police,’ we need police reform and prison reform and things like that because you know who ain’t gonna defund the cops, white neighborhoods and rich neighborhoods,” he said. “So that notion that they keep saying that,  I’m like wait a minute who are Black people supposed to call? Ghostbusters? We need police reform.”
