Wyclef Jean is begging the mother of his former Fugees bandmate Lauryn Hill to force the singer into rehab.
Jean recently (Nov07) dismissed reports the Fugees are recording a new album, insisting Hill is too "out of control" to work with.
He said, "I believe she's completely out of control and has lost touch with reality. Lauryn has some serious issues she needs to address. This difficult side of her has taken over and it's about time someone called her on it."
And the 35-year-old is now making claims the singer is bipolar, and he's blaming her ego for turning her into a monster.
But he tells Rolling Stone magazine, "You can't get angry with someone who's sick."
So, Wyclef is calling on Hill's family to force her to seek psychiatric help or counselling.
He adds, "I even called her mum and I stressed to her, `Yo, you need to get her psychiatric help.'
"But I think they all fear for her to death. She wasn't always like this - but if someone has the ego, and you keep feeding the ego, it's going to turn monstrous."
