Wyclef Jean's wife enraged by nude photo of manager on his cell phone



Former Fugees member Wyclef Jean may be in hot water with wife Marie Claudinette after she apparently found a nude photo of his former manager Lisa Ellis on his cell phone, the New York Daily News reports. That's taking a little less than 10 percent there, Lisa.

Tbd-lisaellis030410 "Claudinette flew into a jealous rage," a source told the tabloid. "She jumped to the conclusion that something may be up between Wyclef and Lisa. She told Lisa to stay away from her husband. To embarrass Lisa, she also e-mailed the nude picture to a number of people in the music business."

Ellis insisted the photograph, which is apparently a black and white image in which she covers her shame with her hands, is no big deal in and of itself.

"Photographer Mark Baptiste took a portrait of me in December 2008 for an art book," Ellis said. "It was tastefully done. Someone leaked the photo. I don't know who did it, but the photo had nothing to do with my resignation as Wyclef Jean's manager."

Does that have anything to do with why she quit as his manager three weeks ago? Nah. "She resigned because she just was not happy with the way Wyclef was conducting himself. He wasn't listening to her advice," a friend said. Part of that advice should have been keeping naked pictures off his cell phone.
