Wycleaf Jean's Charity Under Scrutiny AGAIN!

wyclef-jean-yele-haiti-charity-under-scrutiny

Oh, this does not look good.

Wyclef Jean's Yele Haiti charity has once again come under fire due to claims that the organization's vice president, Zakiya Khatou-Chevassus, was paid $147,000 in 2009, which is a $42,000 salary increase from her job as consulate in 2008 and $15,000 more than president Hugh Locke!

WTF??

That's a lot of money being handed out that could have gone to disaster relief!

Let's hope that history isn't repeating itself, bb!

You've gotten yourself into enough trouble with these organizations!

Thoughts??

Wyclef Takes Injured Haitian Kids On Shopping Spree

And they deserve it!

Wyclef Jean took three young amputees on shopping sprees of $1,000 each after flying them to the US.

As they arrived in New York, 17-year-olds Margarette Pierre and Chantal Mori each lost an arm, while 8-year-old Farah Maurice, had her leg amputated.

On Tuesday, Wyclelf took them to Kmart to pick out whatever they would like.

"When you come from a country where you make $1 a day, giving them $1,000 is like giving them $10,000," said Jean. "They need to know there are people like them and they're normal. Today they're not thinking, 'I don't have a leg.' They're just being kids and they're happy."

The trip for the children were sponsored by Wyclef's charity Yele Haiti and the Global Medical Relief Fund. The girls will head to Philadelphia in June to undergo complimentary treatment for their prosthetic limbs at Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Amazing.
