'Stressed' Wyclef Jean in hospital

Wyclef Jean has been admitted to hospital suffering from stress.
The Grammy Award winning musician, 37, announced a bid for Haiti's presidency in August but ended it last week.
No official reasons were given for the hip hop star's exclusion although he is presumed not to have met constitutional requirements, including living in Haiti.
The 37-year-old checked into a hospital over the weekend. His representative Marian Salzman said he was "suffering from stress and fatigue based on the gruelling eight weeks he's had".
Wyclef was born on the outskirts of Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince. He grew up in New York and lives in New Jersey.
His representative said he "plans to take it easy" and will be released from hospital this week.
He is also planning to release a new album.
