Wyclef Jean shot in the hand in Haiti
The shooting happened in the Delmas section of the capital, Port-au-Prince.
Tanenbaum described the wound as "minor."
"He was immediately taken to the hospital, treated for a minor graze to his hand and released," she said. "He is fine."
In August, when Jean was considering a run for the President of Haiti, he was forced into hiding after receiving death threats. But the musician, who went to high school in Newark and whose family lives in Saddle River, has since been back in the spotlight campaigning for his friend Michel Martelly, also known as "Sweet Mickey."
