According to Haitian police and the doctors that treated Wyclef Jean for his “gun shot” wound… It was only glass!

Police in Haiti have dismissed singer and songwriter Wyclef Jean’s claims that he was shot at citing doctors as confirming that the musician only sustained a minor cut from glass.

Jean claimed to have been shot by an unknown assailant on the eve of presidential elections. The hip-hop star, who long considered running for president in his homeland, said the gunman blasted his hand just after 11 p.m. in the city of Delmas, near the capital Port-au-Prince.

According to the musician, a bullet grazed his right hand when he stepped out of a car to make a phone call.

“I heard blow, blow, blow and I just looked at my hand,” he is quoted as saying.

However, the police dismissed Jean’s claims.

“We met with the doctor who saw him and he confirmed Wyclef was cut by glass,” Vanel Lacroix, police chief in Petionville, told the Daily Mail.

Jean also said doesn’t know who fired the ‘shots’, or whether they were directed at him.

This could easily be a publicity stunt to bring some attention to himself but I find that very hard to believe. Wyclef seems like a good guy who cares about his native country and its people. I hope that he wouldn’t stoop so low to create a publicity stunt like this. We’ll see…
