A rep for Wyclef Jean is confirming that the former Fugee was shot in the hand while in Haiti.
The emcee who previously wanted to be a nominee for Haitian Presidency, was reportedly shot in Port-au-Prince on Saturday — on the eve of the country’s presidential runoff vote.
His representative Cindy Tanenbaum has released a statement on his behalf saying,
“Wyclef’s commitment to his native country and to his people is unparalleled. He is therefore undeterred by this incident.”
“Wyclef Jean was the victim of a minor gun shot wound last night in Haiti. I have confirmed from Wyclef that he was immediately taken to the hospital, treated for a minor graze to his hand and released. He is fine.”
