Wyclef Jean Fires Back At The New York Post, Says Allegations Are False


Wyclef Jean is not taking the allegations made against his Yele Haiti Foundation lightly.

After The New York Post questioned his charity’s use of donations, the singer fired back explaining that his Yele Haiti Charity rebuilt an orphanage and set up a system of outdoor toilet and shower facilities in one of the largest shanties in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

As mentioned on MSDTV, The New York Post had published a report on Sunday claiming his foundation collected $16 million in 2010 but that less than a third of the money went to Haitian emergency efforts. The Post also says $1 million was paid to a Florida firm that doesn’t have established documentation.

Jean founded his Yele Haiti charity in 2005. In 2008, the Post reported that it had never filed a required tax form and in 2009, according to the Post, the foundation mysteriously lost $244,000.

Of course MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned.
