The Musician Reveals the Reason Behind his Hospitalization
The former Fugees member finally opened up about the reason behind his hospitalization on Tuesday. He talked to TMZ and said that he ‘felt numbness on the right side of his face’ after returning from Miami to LA last weekend. He then immediately contacted his family doctor Dr. Waleed Lashin.
The doctor asked him to get himself checked at the emergency room and prescribed him some tests, which required him to stay at the hospital overnight. Jean also revealed that the face numbness was probably due to exhaustion and stress. He is now back home and is on his way to recovery. The musician will also undergo some additional tests next week.

“As the Son of immigrants my parents always told me to dream big !!!! So I combined my two passions and experiences with cars and music and created my dream vision! I’m launching my electric supercar tomorrow at @ameliaconcoursofficial with @apexmotors.global @attucksfuture @supercarrooms,” he wrote on Instagram, announcing the project.
However, shifting focus to the automobile industry does not mean that Jean would be stepping away from music.
