And the drama surrounding Wyclef’s Yele Haiti and alleged inappropriate activity continues. The Gawker website seems to have it out for Wyclef as they’ve been claiming for a while now that Wyclef has been embezzling funds from his own Yele Haiti foundation. He’s denied it many times. Now, the site claims Wyclef’s been taking over $100K from his org to fund the lifestyle of his alleged mistress/”independent contractor” Zakiya Khatou-Chevassus–who also used to work with ‘Clef. The site claims:
She worked for Wyclef on all Wyclef matters,” an unnamed source told the Web site. “She 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.”
Though she reportedly acted as the singer’s personal assistant, Khatou-Chevassus’ salary was more than three times what Yele’s program director received, and the two were said to be romantically involved, Gawker reported.
“Everyone knows they were in a relationship,” said another unnamed source. “A dozen people, including me, saw and knew. It wasn’t a secret.”
