Rapper and former Fugees member, Wyclef Jean, has closed his Yele charity under a cloud of suspicion and a criminal investigation. Yele was supposed to benefit his homeland Haiti, but stands accused of misappropriating $16,000,000 in charity money donated to benefit victims of the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
Instead the money went to luxury items such as private jets and high salaries for Yele's staff members, including Jean and his mistress. This story is sad, as $16,000,000 could have gone a far way to help Haitians that have been left destitute. Jean owes Haiti and Yele's donors a massive apology.
