Having flown to his native land for an election trip, Wyclef Jean is recovering after having been shot in the hand in Haiti on Saturday night (March 19).
Describing the wounds as superficial, the former Fugees musician's publicist Cindy Tanenbaum has since told CNN, "He is doing well."
As for the incident, insiders tell that Jean's car had come under attack and was peppered with bullets as he was being driven through the city of Port-au-Prince with hip-hop pal Busta Rhymes and record executive Jimmy Rosemond.
Confirming the shooting via a post on Twitte, Wyclef's representatives wrote, "We have spoken to Wyclef, he is ok. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers - Management."
The news of Jean's shooting comes hours after exiled former Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide arrived in the country earlier in the day.
