It has been reported that Wyclef Jean is paying his mistress, Zakiya Khatou-Chevassus, 105k in salary through Yele Haiti.
According to Yele Haiti’s 2008 tax return, which was posted this week by the Smoking Gun, the charity paid Khatou-Chevassus $105,000 as an independent contractor in 2008 for “program development.” That amounts to roughly one-third of all the money Yele spent that year on management and general expenses.
So what did she do for that money? Khatou-Chevassus is currently listed on Yele’s web site as the organization’s vice president. But according to five sources familiar with Yele’s operations, in 2008 she served as Jean’s personal assistant—working on his commercial endeavors as well as his charitable ones—and was involved romantically with the former Fugees star.
If you want to give, go here. Yele Haiti is apparently not distributing funds to relief efforts as expected.
