From the start, the org has been on the raised eyebrow radar. Now some shadiness is coming out.
The charity is at the center of a recently filed lawsuit filed by a consulting firm that never got paid.
HVC Global Hospitality Services provided job training for 120 students in May 2011 and accused Wyclef’s folk of walking out on the remaining $108,972 bill.
According to the suit filed in a Manhattan Supreme Court, Yéle agreed to pay $285,000 for a six-month hospitality training and education program in Haiti.
The agreement explained that the foundation was to make installments to HVC throughout the course of the program. But the schedule was not kept.
The consulting company is suing for the amount owed plus interest and attorney fees.
Yéle has been in the spotlight since the singer was pinpointed for receiving huge payouts. After seven years and raising $16 million, the foundation closed in 2012.
