When It Rains It Pours: Wyclef’s Foundation Being Sued For *Surprise* Not Paying A Bill!

May 4, 2013  |  

Remember when we all thought Yéle Haiti was a good idea?

Well, as has been its reputation for the last couple of years, Wyclef’s foundation, Yele Haiti, is in the news again. This time, they’re being sued by a consulting firm for not making good on a bill.

According to EURweb, Yéle Haiti is being sued by HVC Global Hospitality Services for allegedly stiffing them on a bill with a balance of $108,972.

HVC claims that in 2011, they contracted to provide six months of job and hospitality training for 120 students in Haiti back in 2011.  In their lawsuit filed in a New York Supreme Court, Yéle agree to pay the total bill of $285,000 over the course of the program.  However, they allegedly didn’t keep up with the payment and since Yéle has been shut down since 2012, HVC is still looking for a way to get paid.

The bleeding has never stopped and it’s been a debacle almost since its inception.  At this point, it would seem only “right” that maybe Wyclef go into his own pockets and pay the foundation’s outstanding bills.  I mean, we know he is rolling in the dough and since this was his “baby,” he should do the right thing.
