Former “Fugees” star Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand right after leaving his car just outside Port-au- Prince in Haiti on Saturday (March 19). Wyclef claimed he heard gunfire and when he looked down he had blood on his shirt and shoes.
Wyclef has no idea who fired the shots and whether or not he was the target of the attack. He was immediately taken to the hospital and released a couple of hours later. A rep for the singer said, “He’s fine now. It happened late yesterday night and he was released after a couple hours.”
Ironically, Wyclef was shot in the eve of the presidential elections in Haiti. The 41 year-old announced he would be running for president of his home country last year, but he was ruled not elegible because of residency requirements.
