Wyclef Jean - Jean And Penn Unite For Haiti
WYCLEF JEAN and SEAN PENN are pals again - they've put their recent spat behind them in a united bid to promote aid efforts in Haiti.
The Fugees star fell out with the Milk actor after Penn criticised him for running for presidency of the Caribbean nation after it was hit by a devastating earthquake last year (10).
He hit back by accusing Penn of drug abuse - but the pair made up after meeting by chance at a performance by Haitian band T-Vice in New York at the weekend (12-13Feb11), according to New York Post gossip column PageSix.
A source tells the publication, "They were both in the venue, and when they saw each other at around 1am, 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."
Penn then confirmed the falling-out was over by paying tribute to Jean and Haitian presidential candidate Michel Martelly, telling the audience: "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."
