Wyclef Jean became a punching bag after releasing a photograph of him wearing nothing but a Speedo while sitting on a motorcycle. During an interview with Power 105’s The Breakfast Club, ‘Clef finally broke his silence on the snapshot, stating that it was from an old photo shoot and had been on the Internet prior to him tweeting it on his birthday.

“First of all, the pic with the Speedo, that’s an old pic. I’m part of a bike club. Bike-Clef wore Speedos at the time. That’s actually an old photo shoot, and those photos are actually up on Facebook or Instagram,” he said. “This is actually a photoshoot for a company in Italy. I said ‘I turned 43, I feel 26’ based on that photo shoot that I had did. I’m telling you when I did the photo shoot so that you clear, right?”

He turned his attention to Lauryn Hill, stating that he doesn’t think she’s gone crazy. He noted that he once called her crazy, but said that he was in a situation where he thought she might be suffering from bipolar disorder.

“First of all, I don’t think Lauryn’s crazy. I clearly said that. If y’all follow historically what I said, I just felt personally that there was a situation where I felt she was bipolar. I know people that’s crazy, but I also have seen syndromes of people that I feel one day they’re a certain way, another day they’re a certain way. That was more of what I expressed.”
