I believe the reason Wyclef always has to mention Lauryn is because in my opinion she must be "the one who got away" or he just hates that he can't control her or he feels like he's done her so wrong his self conscious always brings her up. Every interview I've seen/read about him he talks about her EVERY interview. Whether he's asked about her or not. Maybe he doesn't think he's relevant unless he talks about her. I don't know it does make me wonder why doesn't he bring his wife/child up like that or shout them out like that. Hmmmm.....
I have never commented in the Wyclef section because I don't like him, but to say that Lauryn's and Wyclef's "relationship" was a love story is an insult to the concept of love. Love is not controlling, hurtful, or one-sided. Lauryn probably was in love. Wyclef, not so much.
If you listen to the "Ex-Factor" lyrics, they do not describe a love story. They describe an abusive relationship, and abuse is not just physical. It can be emotional, mental, or verbal. Lauryn was just able to channel all of the hurt and make beautiful music. The only thing that Wyclef probably loves or misses about Lauryn is all the money the Fugees made when they were together.
Remember, he was the one who told the media all of their business and started the whole Lauryn is bipolar crap, and he still can't keep her name out of his mouth. Lauryn never says a word to defend herself. Lauryn exemplifies love. Wyclef is a drama queen.
And as far as him getting shot. He's okay. Maybe he can do some good in Haiti to reverse any bad karma.
ladona Please note I said SICK. I don't think in anyway their relationship was a healthy one. I agree with you totally. However, I do think he was and still is in love with her. He has documented it in his music. He even said, "he was suicidal when he wrote 911." Here is a list of the songs he has written for and about her.
At :45 seconds in this song. He says he would go back in time and tell his girl "two wrong still don't make it right". He said on the radio he wrote that song about him and Lauryn along with 911. He is a mess.
@guest21 WOW! Thanks for these! I always knew he wrote a host of songs about her but I didn't really know which ones except for 911. I wonder what his wife thinks about this I bet she feels inadequate and unappreciated with the way he's always somewhere talking about Lauryn. I agree with Ladona he's an ass but asses love too just like guest21 said its a sick love
