Jacob Won't Let Fugee Flee with Bling

7/30/2008 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Talk about tightening credit: Jacob the Jeweler says he sold Wyclef Jean over $300K worth of bling -- apparently on his house tab -- that he hasn't collected on.

Jacob is suing Wy to collect on the $319,000 worth of jewelry he sold him between March 2002 and January 2006 -- like that money will do him much good in prison. He says the ex-Fugee bought $765K worth of bling but hasn't paid in full yet.

Jacob was just sentenced to two-and-a-half years in a federal pen for lying to investigators in a drug ring sting.

Wyclef's people didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

If he is stupid enough to sell these celebrity and sports thugs jewelry on credit, he deserves to lose the $$$, Has he not figured out they all wind up in jail or bankruptcy court - or both?

All that money Jakob laundered, I guess he could afford to be generous with credit. But when it comes time to be paid, well that is a different story. But why so much credit to has-been stars?
