"Fugees" star Wyclef Jean may be in trouble at home after his wife discovered a nude picture of his gorgeous manager on his cell phone, sources said.
Marie Claudinette demanded her hip-hop star husband fire Lisa Ellis after finding the sexy shot, sources told the Daily News.
"Claudinette flew into a jealous rage," claimed one insider. "She jumped to the conclusion that something may be up between Wyclef and Lisa. She told Lisa to stay away from her husband. To embarrass Lisa, she also e-mailed the nude picture to a number of people in the music business."
Ellis insisted her relationship with the Grammy-winning Jean has always been strictly professional.
"Photographer Mark Baptiste took a portrait of me in December 2008 for an art book," Ellis said. "It was tastefully done. Someone leaked the photo. I don't know who did it, but the photo had nothing to do with my resignation as Wyclef Jean's manager."
Although the Fugees have long broken up, Jean has been in the spotlight for his efforts on behalf of his native Haiti after a devastating earthquake.
"Wyclef is spending all his time inspiring others to rebuild Haiti. We're not commenting on any of these rumors," said Jean's spokesman, Ken Sunshine.
Jean and his manager parted ways about three weeks ago.
The black-and-white nudie photo, which The News has seen, shows Ellis standing facing forward with her hands crossed over her nether regions.
A friend described Ellis, who has a boyfriend, as "mortified."
"She resigned because she just was not happy with the way Wyclef was conducting himself. He wasn't listening to her advice," the friend said.
"Lisa has no issue with Claudinette."
The 37-year-old Wyclef married Claudinette, a fashion designer, in 1994. They have a daughter and renewed their vows in August 2009.
They were together as recently as Friday, arriving together to the NAACP Image Awards, where Jean was honored.
Ellis, who previously dated former congressman Harold Ford, had been helping Jean run his Carnival House entertainment company. Before that, she served as Executive VP of Sony Music Label Group and President of Sony Urban Music.
