Witches' Brew: Never Put The Jumpoff On The Payroll

Never Put The Jumpoff On The Payroll

Wyclef Jean is learning the Jumpoff Commandments the hard way. Sources are questioning Wyclef’s philanthropic work now that records show he gave his alleged mistress a job in the Yele Haiti organization. The woman in question, Zakiya Khatou-Chevassus, made $105,000 as an independent contractor in 2008 for “program development.”

Sources say she served as Jean’s personal assistant, working on his commercial and philanthropic endeavors. Gawker reports Khatou-Chevassus “did whatever Wyclef needed that day, whether it was related to Yele or not. She would do things like book flights, and she wasn’t very good at it. It’s a shame that she made that much money.” Khatou-Chevassus actually made three times what the actual program director who keeps the organization afloat makes.

One source said “everyone knows they were in a relationship. A dozen people, including me, saw and knew. It wasn’t a secret.” Wyclef and his wife Marie Claudinette Jean have reportedly been in an “open” marriage for some time.

No doubt Wyclef reps hard for Haiti. No one can question that. But I give it a solid “hmmmm” when it looks like the open marriage is spilling over into the money. Money and peen/poon don’t mix.

Apparently money and peen/poon do mix. I don't think that any of us can truly pass judgement on whether or not it was worth it.......only Wyclef truly knows the answer to that one.
