Lauryn Hill and Fugees Reunion Blasted as ‘False’

While Lauryn Hill is busy on her national Moving Target tour, the singer has no plans of getting back together with her Fugees group members anytime soon. The 35-year-old blasted reports that she, Wyclef Jean and Pras would be reuniting for Haiti’s presidential inauguration ceremony on Saturday (May 14).

According to, Hill’s representative wrote the story off as completely false. “It was recently erroneously reported in the press that Ms. Lauryn Hill was set to re-unite with The Fugees for an event at the Haitian presidential inauguration on Saturday, May 14th,” her rep told the site. “This performance announcement was unfortunately false, as Ms. Hill is currently on tour in the U.S. and will be performing in Santa Barbara, California that evening. Any reports to the contrary in the press are incorrect.”

Hill did however state that she would like to perform in the country sometime in the future, but fell short of confirming whether or not a Fugees reunion would be on her agenda.

If they were to perform at the inauguration ceremony, the event would no doubt be bittersweet for Jean, who ran for high office in the country before losing the presidential bid. Despite accusations of election fraud, Michel “Sweet Mickey” Martelly, 50, beat out the competition to become president of the West Indian country, which has struggled to rebuild following the catastrophic earthquake in January of 2010.
