*Uh oh. Do we have another Tiger Woods type scandal in the making? Hopefully not for Wyclef Jean’s sake.
It seems the Haitian born musician’s wife reportedly found a nude photo of his former manager on his cell phone. Oh lord, here we go again. When will they ever learn?
Anyway, as expected, Jean’s wife, Marie Claudinette went ballistic and now Lisa Ellis is no longer his manager.
On the other hand Ellis told the New York Daily News that she left on her own accord; it nothing to do with Mrs. Jean. Also, a source says she left because Wyclef “doesn’t listen” to her anymore.
Ellis explained that her relationship with the Grammy-winning former Fugee has always been strictly professional.
“Photographer Mark Baptiste took a portrait of me in December 2008 for an art book,” she told the Daily News. “It was tastefully done. Someone leaked the photo. I don’t know who did it, but the photo had nothing to do with my resignation as Wyclef Jean’s manager.”
The art photo shows Ellis facing forward with her arms crossed over her privates.
Ellis and Jean go back to her days as Executive VP of Sony Music Label Group and President of Sony Urban Music. Recently, she had been helping him run his Carnival House company
Wyclef, 37, and Marie Claudinette, a fashion designer, have been married since 1994. Needless to say, he’s got some serious ‘splainin’ to do.
