Details on the rapper's hospitalization hit the Internet Monday.
Billboard.com reported that Jean has been suffering from headaches for weeks, forcing him to check himself into a hospital in New Jersey, where he lives. "He has been following a very heavy schedule, that has taken him to Europe twice, Asia and Africa, at the same time he's working to finish his upcoming album and he has been meeting with a few head of States during the General Assembly Session at the U.N.," Billboard quoted a source as saying.

A statement regarding Clef's situation was also issued.
"He is currently suffering the effects of lack of sleep and stress, global travel, even the endless public eye, and has asked that his fans and supporters bear with him for the next several days as he regains his physical health and stamina," reads the statement, obtained by MTV. "Then he will be back out in front of the crusade to rebuild Haiti and his pledge to make it even better for business." (New Jersey Star-Ledger)
Last week, after non-stop late summer campaigning, Clef announced his decision to end a pursuit to become Haiti's next president.
"After weeks of quiet but painstaking reflection with my wife and daughter, I have chosen to end my bid for the presidency of Haiti," Jean said in a statement. "This was not an easy conclusion to reach; but it is one that was thoughtfully made, taking into account many, many competing factors and weighing the course that will best advance the healing of the country and help it find the quickest path to recovery."
