Yep – you heard that right. Wyclef Jean accidentally dropped the CEO of Jaguar Land Rover Motors on his head at an after-party. Luckily the fall wasn’t too serious as the CEO, Mr. Joe Eberhardt escaped with only slight injuries.
Oops, My Bad?
According to TMZ, Mr. Jean was hired to perform at the Range Rover Leadership Summit, taking place at the Academy of Motion Pictures. The event had attendees from Jaguar Land Rover, North American division where they’d be giving speeches and debuting a new line of products.

The after-party, however, took place at the Edition Hotel in West Hollywood. One can see Mr. Joe Eberhardt sitting on top of Mr. Jean’s shoulders in the footage, before taking the nasty tumble. Although he was left a little shaken by the incident, it didn’t ruin the mood as the party went on afterward. Other revelers could be seen rushing to his side after the spill. Naturally, Mr. Jean was mortified by the ordeal.
As usual, the internet had a field day with the news. Here’s a classic take from Twitter:
