Rep For Lauryn Hill Denies Fugee Reunion Reports In Haiti Today

Reps for Lauryn Hill have denied recent reports that the world renown rapper/singer is reuniting with The Fugees for the Haitian Presidential inauguration today (May 14th) in Haiti.
President Michel "Sweet Mickey" Martelly, 50, was sworn in on the lawn of the collapsed, National Palace in Port-Au-Prince.
Reports suggested Hill would be performing at the ceremony with former group members Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel.
"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," a rep for Hill told AllHipHop.com in statement. "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.
Lauryn Hill sent her best wishes to her fans in Haiti, and said she would be performing there in the near future.
In April, Martelly trounced his competition in a second round of voting, after accusations of fraud and voter intimidation in the original November election.
The corruption forced a run off in March, in which Martelly received 68% of the votes.
As President of Haiti, Martelly has vowed to build a new army, reduce the poverty and most importantly - start the reconstruction of the tiny country - which was devastated by a massive earthquake in January of 2010 that killed over 200,000 people.
