In a recent interview with Montreality, Haiti-born entertainer Wyclef Jean spoke on several issues including the jobs he had growing up, including working as a security guard at Burger King and cleaning toilets with his dad. He also commented on former Fugee member Lauryn Hill’s tax problems and also revealed that he’s working on his first novel.
“I heard about the little drama she got in the news, wishing her better on that. You know? Actually, I was on the phone with Pras earlier. It’s all good. Nothing but love for the Fugees.”
Lauryn Hill, who Clef says he hasn’t spoken to “in a minute” (there goes hopes of a fugee reunion O_o) currently faces three years in prison for intentionally failing to file taxes between 2005 and 2007, during which time she $1.8 million.
Lauryn defended her action posting a long message to fans online stating that it was “necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family.”
Wyclef also revealed that he is working on a book.
“First book’s coming out in September. …My first book is called Purpose. Because that’s the first thing I did, right? I had to find my purpose. That’s what a lot of us go through. …It’s like a biography of Wyclef.”
