Wyclef Jean's wife allegedly found nude pic of manager Lisa Ellis on his phone. Uh-oh
When will men learn not to keep incriminating photos on their cell phones?
Wyclef Jean's wife reportedly found a nude photo of his female manager on his cell phone. His wife Claudinette hit the ceiling and now the manager, Lisa Ellis is no longer his manager.
Lisa tells the New York Daily News that her leaving has nothing to do with his wife and a source says she left because because Wyclef "doesn't listen" to her anymore.
Ellis insisted her relationship with the Grammy-winning Jean has always been strictly professional.
"Photographer Mark Baptiste took a portrait of me in December 2008 for an art book," Ellis says. "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."
The art photo shows Ellis facing forward with her arms crossed over her privates.
"She resigned because she just was not happy with the way Wyclef was conducting himself. He wasn't listening to her advice," the DN source said.
Ellis had been helping Jean run his Carnival House entertainment company. She was formerly Executive VP of Sony Music Label Group and President of Sony Urban Music.
The 37-year-old Wyclef and Claudinette, a fashion designer,got hitched in 1994. They have a daughter and they renewed their vows in August 2009.
They were together at the recent NAACP Image Awards, where Jean was honored.
