Dubbed the greatest rap album of all time, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill was musician Lauryn Hill's most soul-bearing and sadly, the only solo record till date. Released in 1989, the now-classic LP won rave reviews, including the prestigious Album of the Year at the Grammys among a plethora of awards.

It all began when Lauryn came across Rohan in 1996 while touring with The Fugees. Within a year, she got pregnant with the duo's first child, Zion.
After breaking things off with Wyclef, with whom she was in an on-&-off relationship for years, the Doo Wop hitmaker moved to her then-boyfriend Rohan's native land of Jamaica to work on her first solo release, which would eventually become The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
Although never married, she and her once-husband prospect enjoyed 15 more fruitful years as a couple, welcoming four more children - Selah, Joshua, John, and Sarah - in between, before calling it quits circa 2011.

At the center of their fallout was Lauryn's pregnancy stemmed from an affair with a yet-to-be-named lover.
In later interviews, Rohan bluntly suggested that the "Nothing Even Matters" hitmaker's alleged affair caused their relationship to crumble. To his credit, he managed to pull his life together, marrying Brazilian model, Isabeli Fontana a year after the split. Lauryn, on the other hand, not so much.

A year later, in 2013, the mother of six - who stands five feet and two inches in height - served four months sentence for the very criminal act.
