Wyclef Jean - Wyclef Opens Up About Lauryn Hill Affair In New Memoir

Wyclef Jean's new memoir Purpose: An Immigrant's Story gives a remarkable insight into the singers’ life, the break up of The Fugees, life post-earthquake and his run for presidency following the tragic natural disaster.

Speaking to MTV, the Haitian born rapper plans to write 7 books; his first one has only been in the shops for 24 hours! But it seems he has plenty of stories to tell. "I'm gonna write seven books, and the first one was a memoir because of one of the things I learned when I ran for president and got bamboozled," he explained. "The mass world, what they know about Wyclef is basically that he can sing, he can produce, he can write songs, but they don't know how smart musicians actually are and where they're from. The memoir, [it] was important to me that it's raw, it's honest, it's like my music and if you're reading it, you just feel like you're a one-on-one conversation opposed to reading something."

Jean’s surmise of The Fugees’ demise also leaves no room for questions; “In that moment something died between us. I was married and Lauryn and I were having an affair, but she led me to believe that the baby was mine, and I couldn’t forgive that,” he writes, according to an excerpt from the New York Post. “She could not longer be my muse. Our love spell was broken.”
