Wyclef Jean -- Shot in Haiti, Released from Hospital

3/20/2011 10:59 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Wyclef Jean was shot in the hand yesterday just outside Port-au-Prince in Haiti.

Wyclef Jean Shot
He was treated at a local hospital and released.

A rep for the singer said the bullet just grazed his hand and he's doing well, saying, "He’s fine now. It happened late yesterday night and he was released after a couple hours.”

The shooting comes on the eve of the presidential elections.  Wyclef was a candidate but ruled ineligible because of residency requirements.

UPDATE: Wyclef says he had just left his car, when he heard gunfire. He says the next thing he noticed ... he saw blood on his shirt and shoes. He has no idea who fired shots or whether he was even the target.

"the bullet just -crazed- his hand" I think you meant "grazed", unless the wound was crazy bad...

At least he's actually in Haiti, unlike Mr. "I live in Haiti" Sean Penn - who's really in Hollywood boning ScarJo

It was probably from him pinching himself with his zippo lighter while lighting a doobie. Anything that keeps this clown from uttering his warbling goat calls and calling it music is fine by me.

OooooNooo!    

Wyclef was a candidate but ruled ineligible because of residency requirements.

He should run for President of the United States -- no residency requirement problems. . .
