Wyclef is bearing his soul in his new book, Purpose, which was released yesterday, and has already revealed his “triangle love affair” with Lauryn Hill while he was married.
Wyclef seems to be a serial cheater and has fessed up to cheating on his wife with his manager, Lisa Ellis, two years ago. If you recall, Wyclef Jean’s wife, Claudinette, allegedly hit the roof when she found naked pics of his manager on his phone.
Publicly, Wyclef remained mum about the affair, but Ellis released a statement saying that the photos were from an upcoming art book and denied having an affair with Wyclef. Ellis was fired shortly thereafter. Page Six has an excerpt from Purpose, where Wyclef reveals the infidelity. Check it out below:
“In those years after my father died, like I said, I made many mistakes. The worst of them was to get into a relationship with the woman who was my manager at the time . . . My former manager claimed that the picture was a nude shot taken by a photographer for a book of artistic portraits. I’m pretty sure that book never came out, but I wasn’t going to throw her under the bus publicly, so I didn’t say anything more about it.” Jean also said he didn’t fire Ellis as his manager because his wife, Claudinette, made him. “I did so because of a few bad business decisions on her part, and I also didn’t agree with her management style. Even if those two issues hadn’t been there, my mixing business with pleasure was miserable. Firing her as my manager was the only thing I could do after crossing those lines, because business could not go on as usual between us any longer.”
I wonder how Wyclef’s wife is feeling right about now with all of his confessions of him stepping out on her.
