Supposedly, all of this monetary waste -- see: approximately $100,000 earmarked to Wyclef's reported mistress and another odd $30,000 to fly Lindsay Lohan to a charity event that drew only $60,000 (presumably because everybody heard Lindsay Lohan was showing up) -- started occurring after Wyclef failed in his attempt to run for president of Haiti, so we can only imagine how Donald Trump will react if he fails to win the United States presidential election.
The philanthropic misadventures continue with Wyclef's cousin Pras, who set up a fundraiser for those who suffered because of 9/11. It was supposed to be a giant fashion show with guest musical performances, all sponsored by MTV. The musical headliner apparently caught the flu, which would seem innocuous enough if it weren't for the fact that the headliner was Pras himself, and no one else showed up to perform. As if things weren't embarrassing enough, MTV claimed that it was never involved in any kind of sponsorship, because it was 2014 and MTV hadn't touched anything music-related in two decades.
When the whole event fell apart, Pras manned up and wrote a check for the venue ... and it bounced.
Though, honestly, not forcing patrons to listen to Pras might've been his most charitable act of all.
