Wyclef Jean has been shot in Haiti. What happened to Wyclef Jean? It turns out that hip-hop singer Wyclef was shot in the hand in Port-au-Prince during the country’s presidential run-off vote.
Wyclef is recovering after the incident, and was released from the hospital already. His rep says that he had a “superficial” wound. He is supposedly doing well.
Right now, Haiti is in the midst of choosing between former first lady Mirlande Manigat and a singer, Michel Martelly for the presidential runoff vote. At one point, Wyclef Jean was going to run as well, but took his name out of the running after it was determined that he was ineligible since he had not lived in Haiti long enough.
Luckily Wyclef Jean’s injury after being shot was not serious, and it sounds like he will be just fine.
