Hip Hop legend Wyclef Jean stopped by the “WENDY” show and chatted with host Wendy Williams about his autobiography “Purpose: An Immigrant’s Story”, his love affair with Lauryn Hill and the breakup of The Fugees.
Of course since revealing deets about his affair with former Fugees member Lauryn Hill, Wendy had to ask him about the relationship. Clef said he he can talk about the fling now because he is past 40 (he’s 43) and he wants everyone to know the truth….on record. He revealed that Lauryn led him to believe that her firstborn was his child; but, he says when he got to the hospital he saw a “yellow baby.” He knew then that he wasn’t the father.
He also admitted that he never told her about the book prior to its release because she already knows the story and so do at least a 1,000 other people.
Wyclef says his wife of 18 years Claudinette is his “best friend” and when asked if they went to therapy to heal he answered: “My woman is Caribbean you know, and when she looks at you a certain way and she tells you you don’t wanna do this again, I don’t think you need more therapy than that.”
When asked what happened when he ran for leader of Haiti, he said, “They took me out of the race” and he got “bamboozled.”
He also talked about his adorable adopted daughter who is seven and has both Haitian and Guyanese roots.

He also visited 106 & Park on BET making his publicity rounds. He talks with Rocsi about training for his upcoming movie, Black November, where he plays a Nigerian. He talks about his relationship with his father a protestant pastor. He said if he could go back he would “not have indulged in that deep of a relationship, but would have kept it musical.”
