Lauryn Hill Denies Fugee Reunion

Lauryn Hill Denies Fugee Reunion

Hill says no to Haitian concert.

Published May 16, 2011

Between Bob Marley tributes on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and her Moving Target tour, Lauryn Hill is quite busy. Too busy, she says, to reunite with her Fugee bandmates.

Recently, rumors swirled that the New Jersey trio would get back together on stage for Haiti's presidential inauguration ceremony on Saturday (May 14). But according to, that's not in the elusive singer's plans. 

"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 said. "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."

While Hill did mention that she would like to perform in Haiti, she did not link that future concert to a Fugees reunion show. 

Wyclef Jean attempted to run for President of Haiti but was barred from participating. Michel "Sweet Mickey" Martelly won the recent election and is currently serving as president of the country.
