For a while now, there's been some serious tension between Sean Penn and Wyclef Jean, after Penn publicly criticized Jean during his bid in the Haiti presidential race, which he was disqualified from.
Now it looks these two have made peace, after arguing it out for 30 minutes in a locked backstage dressing room at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill In NYC's Times Square. The two were at the club to see Haitian band T-Vice perform.
Here's what a source had to say about it:
"They were both in the venue, and when they saw each other at around 1 a.m., they started a confrontation. Things seemed pretty tense, and everyone around them was nervous. They then asked staff if they could go somewhere private, so they were led into a dressing room backstage where they could be alone and shut the door.
They weren't yelling and screaming, but they had it out and aired their differences for 30 minutes. When they came out they hugged each other, they went onstage and stood side-by-side."
Here's what Penn had to say to Wyclef and Haiti President-hopeful Michel Martelly, who was also in attendance at the event:
"In Haiti, we have got an opportunity as Americans whether you are from Haitian diaspora or pr - - ks like me . . . These two men beside me will lead the way if you support them . . . let's move on for some fun."
We're so glad to hear that these two made peace.
Very mature move by both of you, bbs!
