Police Chief And Doctor Claim Wyclef Jean Was Not Shot, But Cut By Glass

Contrary reports are incoming about the shooting of the former Fugees member.

Over the weekend, reports surfaced of emcee-turned-politician Wyclef Jean being shot in his homeland of Haiti. The former member of The Fugees, and multi-platinum artist was reportedly struck in the hand by a bullet, which was confirmed by onetime band-mate Pras, as well as management.

Less than 24 hours after the shooting, Haiti police officials are dismissing those reports. "We met with the doctor who saw him and he confirmed Wyclef was cut by glass," Vanel Lacroix, police chief in Petionville said in a statement, printed in The International Business Times.

Jean has stated that he is unaware of who the shooter was, or if he was the intended target. The artist's management has already confirmed that he has recovered.

    Check this song out in regards to the shooting. Found it on a site, wyclefs verse is very similar to the incident and was recently recorded apparently with this artist MB4. http://www.mediafire.com/?tro7wu4qmsy24g5

    hahahaha haa. even gayer. what a tool

  • rodney

    *sigh* Nobody cares. Glad you're alright 'Clef, but you're a mess.

  • uh...

    I think the general consensus is that it was a shooting. And Wyclef, aftering being injured on his hand, made the obvious assumption that he had been hit by a bullet. Instead it was shrapnal. There is no real difference between the two as both are deadly and cause similar injuries. I have a feeling Hip hop outlets are now trying to spin this into something that makes Wyclef look like a "wannabe" gangster when he is and has alwasy been anything but.

    • joe cooley

      How is International Business Times a "Hip Hop outlet"? Kill that Biggie and Pac cryin' foul shit.

    • Enlightened

      General consensus among who? How many people who were there told you that? How many accounts did you hear reported besides Wyclef's? Did the "shooters" do an interview?

      Well...I don't think it matters IF somebody was actually shooting at him and it caused the glass to injure him BUT if nobody was shooting and he suffered the injury from glass in another way...then yeah it matters...he would be a clown ass nigga for running with that story
