Gossip: Wyclef Jean

Rapper Wyclef Jean denied that he misused funds from his charity, Yele Haiti, to fund personal projects.

Rapper Wyclef Jean this week denied that he misused funds from his charity, Yele Haiti, to fund personal projects. Website The Smoking Gun said last week that tax documents showed that Jean had mixed the finances of his personal businesses with the charity’s. The charge comes as millions of dollars in donations intended to help victims of Haiti’s 7.0 earthquake began pouring into the Haitian-born Jean’s charity. “After digging up kids and finding cemeteries for them, this is what I come back to?” said Jean, who recently returned from Haiti.
