Wyclef Jean is revealing all kinds of dirt…just in time for a pay day (of course). Sadly, most of it is aimed at Lauryn Hill who is not really having the best summer ever.
In his new autobiography, “Purpose,” Clef says he fell out of love with Lauryn after she led him to believe that he was the father of her firstborn son, Zion, and that lie ultimately doomed The Fugees.
“In that moment something died between us. I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that.”
“She could no longer be my muse. Our love spell was broken.”
Ah yes, because everything is the other person’s fault when you cheat. *boy bye*
Zion and the next 35 kids (but not the 36th) were actually fathered by Rohan Marley. Wyclef also admits to problems with his pro-Haiti charity, Yele. The book, “Purpose,” hits stores tomorrow. Will you read it?

Musician and one-time presidential hopeful Wyclef Jean was shot in Haiti on the eve of that nation’s election. Wyclef was struck in the hand Saturday in Port-au-Prince. He’s been in Haiti to raise support for presidential candidate Michel Martelly. Word is Wyclef’s car was attacked and shot at as he was traveling with Busta Rhymes and record executive Jimmy Rosemond. Details are sketchy and so far, this tweet is all that’s come from ‘Clef’s camp…
We have spoken to Wyclef, he is ok. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers -- Management

UPDATE: Wyclef was treated and released from a Haitian hospital. Haiti’s Defend.ht website posted this pic of ‘Clef being treated for his injury.

Wyclef is still pretty salty about that whole not becoming president of a country he doesn’t live in thing. And he’s really mad about Sean Penn speaking up in opposition to his Haitian presidential bid. During a weekend “Hot 97″ performance, Clef had this to say about the situation:
“If I was president. I got a message for Sean Penn, maybe he ain’t see me in Haiti cuz he was too busy sniffing cocaine. I got a message for Praswell, even though you don’t want to support me, I got love for you. Even though you only kicked eight bars in the Fugees.”
Sean Penn is not feeling this presidential run of Wyclef Jean’s. Penn, who has been living in Haiti for the past six months after January’s devastating earthquake, says he is “suspicious” of Wyclef’s intentions.
“This is somebody who’s going to receive an enormous amount of support from the United States, and I have to say I’m very suspicious of it, simply because he, as an ambassador at large, has been virtually silent. For those of us in Haiti, he has been a non-presence.”
After the quake, Penn co-founded the “J/P Haitian Relief Organization” and currently runs a 55,000 person tent camp for people left homeless by the disaster. Meanwhile, Wyclef has found himself at the heart of some serious allegations of using his charity’s money for non-charitable things.
So, what’s your call? Are you suspicious of Wyclef’s intention to run for Haiti’s next president? Or, should Sean Penn put a sock in it?

Wyclef’s Yele Haiti organization has raised close to $10 million since the January earthquake in Port-Au-Prince. That’s despite scrutiny over its accounting practices, payments to a personal assistant and Wyclef’s alleged affair with his former manager.
Wyclef has always maintained his innocence though, even tweeting:
“…I have been spending money n my country since I was a Fugees! why is it now after the Quake I am being Excuse! They fear I’m gaining ground.”
Whatever’s going on behind closed doors though, $10 mil is good news for the people of Haiti if they get the donations.
