Wyclef Jean Wrongfully Arrested In L.A.

Wyclef Jean was wrongfully arrested in L.A. early Tuesday morning (March 21st) at around 1:30 a.m. in a case of mistaken identity. According to Rap-Up via TMZ, the rapper/producer was in the car with two women -- one of them being his manager, when he was pulled over by Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies in West Hollywood. Police officials claim they arrested 'Clef because his car matched the description of the car used in a nearby armed robbery.

Wyclef says he was wearing a Haitian flag bandana when he was arrested and apparently, the suspect in the armed robbery was wearing a red bandana at the time of the crime. In video footage that Clef posted to his Instagram page of him getting arrested, he said, "I'm a recording artist and I'm coming from the studio. I was recording...Can you give them the address to the studio? But this is...just so y'all know, I am going to sue the LAPD. Please. I am going to sue because you took off my hat, you put cuffs on me.." the similarity of the suspect vehicle to Mr. Jean's vehicle ... and Mr. Jean's furtive movements and demeanor, he was handcuffed." They then said that Wyclef was placed in the back of the patrol car for security reasons. The Sheriff added that it was a "lawful detention" and "reasonable." They later apologized for any inconvenience it may have caused the rapper.

'Clef has since released a statement, saying, "I was asked by the police to put my hands up. Then I was told, ‘Do not move.’ I was instantly hand cuffed before being asked to identify myself and before being told why. In the process I said my name and told them they have wrong person. They proceeded to ignore me and I was treated like a criminal. I am sure no father wants his sons or daughters to see him in Handcuffs especially if he is innocent. As someone who has law enforcers in my family, I was appalled by the behavior of the LAPD."

  • The rapper's spokesperson, Melanie Bonvicino, has said that her client was "subject to police brutality, racial profiling, police bias and the ongoing discriminatory practices of law enforcement." Bonvicino is demanding a full investigation.
  • It's worth noting that the correct robber has been apprehended.
  • The LAPD also tweeted out a correction that they were not involved in Wyclef's arrest, as he had mentioned in his Instagram post. They tweeted, "This morning @wyclef erroneously tweeted that he had been detained by the #LAPD. We can confirm that we WERE NOT involved in that incident." 'Clef was arrested by L.A. County Sheriff's Department

Diddy's Revolt TV Network Sued For Discrimination

Page Six has reported that Diddy’s Revolt TV is being sued for allegedly discriminating against White employees. A former production team for the network has filed a lawsuit claiming that they were discriminated against because of their age and race.

The lawsuit said, "Boreland was always rude, condescending and dismissive towards the Goodstein Production Team. Ms. Boreland, however, treated the African-American staff in a much friendlier and respectful manner."

  • The complaint also mentioned that Black employees’ didn't face consequences for their inappropriate work behavior, such as "showing up to work hung over or intoxicated."
  • The plaintiffs suing were fired and replaced by younger, "inexperienced" Black employees back in December 2014.
