Wyclef Jean and Lauryn Hill have a troubled history with one another, with Wyclef at one point publicly urging Lauryn Hill to get “mental help.” With the resurgence of Hill’s career and years between their last spat, one would think that the two would have sat down and worked out their differences by now. Unfortunately, it looks like that is not the case.
Both Wyclef and Lauryn Hill were present at the recent funeral for business architect Chris Lighty, but Wyclef admits that the two did not take a moment to greet each other. Check out what he told Montreality in a recent interview:
“At the funeral It was just so many people. I was in the section next to Missy [Elliott], Lyor Cohen…it was so many people that it was hard for everybody to intertwine at once.”
That’s a pretty cryptic answer, but it seems that they are still not on speaking terms. Wyclef also commented on Hill’s recent tax issues. Check out what he below:
“Actually, you know, I ain’t speak to Lauryn. It’s been a minute. 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.”
Glad to see that, at the very least, Wyclef and Pras are still on good terms. Pras was also outspoken about Hill’s $1.8 million tax trouble. He spoke to Global Grind about her exuberant bail.
“I’m bugging! I can’t believe it! I’m sitting here on a plane to L.A. listening to Phil Collins and Philip Bailey “Easy Lover” on my iPod. But I don’t believe she’ll go to jail, but d*mn bail is 150K?! Zimmerman was about the same. Go figure! … This is crazy!!
I’m still hoping that Wyclef and Lauryn can straighten out their differences. How amazing would a new Fugees album be?
