Wyclef Jean Shot in Hand in Haiti

Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand on Saturday (March 19) in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

The 41-year-old entertainer and former presidential hopeful was taken to the hospital after the scary incident, which took place on the eve of Haiti’s presidential elections.

“He was released from the hospital [and is] fine now,” his rep told the Wall Street Journal, adding that Wyclef was released after a few hours and that the shot “just grazed his hand”.

Scary – but glad Wyclef is okay!!

    I’m glad he’s ok and hope there will be drama free elections today. Haiti need to get on with rebuilding after the earthquake.

    Is this photo really necessary? Couldn’t you find one where he’s not pointing a fake gun?

    I can’t help but feel this is a bit of a foreshadow. Could you imagine what would have happened if he had run for President? Perhaps he would have been assassinated. Glad he’s ok.

  • OMG

    We lost Smiley Culture and Nate Dogg RIP to both. Don’t be trying to kill Wyclef Jean.

    @ Maria you are so right a very lucky escape – let’s just hope no fool tries again. Come back strong Haiti, New Zealand and Japan – stronger than ever (any country that’s hurting STILL BELIEVE).

    Do you guys remember when Sean Penn said Wyclef wasn’t around Haiti and he was all for show? Now isn’t Sean on vacation in Mexico with Scarlet and Wyclef getting shot in Haiti, guess now we now who was the one putting a show.
