Wyclef Jean Accused Of Paying Alleged Mistress $105,000 From Yele Haiti


Wyclef Jean’s recent issues with his personal life and nonprofit organization are continuing to add up.

Just last week reports circulated that the ex-Fugee was in hot water with his wife after she found nude pictures of his manager in his cell phone.

Now however another woman believed to be romantically involved with Clef, is being questioned for her ties to his Yele Haiti organization.

Zakiya Khatou-Chevassus first made headlines on March 11 after The Smoking Gun printed Yele Haiti’s tax refund showing that she received $105,000 from the company last year as the organization’s Vice President.

According to The Gawker however and several sources, Khatou-Chevassus is not the Vice President but rather Clef’s assistant who he has a personal relationship with.

She reportedly earned three times as much as the organization’s program director.

Defending himself on Twitter, Wyclef denied the rumors saying,

“When Donkeys spread rumors about me I dont Respond cause I’m the master that leads them to the Well to drink the Water. Yele haiti 4 life!

•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

•And don’t get it twisted! My Garage could fit half of the people on twitter why would I steal Charity Money! Your gotta come better den dat.”

In more positive news Wyclef was recently named the “Artist of The Year” at the prestigious Harvard University.

As previously reported the institution selected Clef after he was nominated by student organizations for his earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.
