According to, Jean has been suffering from severe headaches for weeks, which became so unbearable that the singer forced himself to check into a hospital. "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.," says a source close to Jean.

The news arrives after Jean officially ended his bid for Haiti's presidency last week following unsuccessful attempts to gain eligiblity for the race. The singer announced that his focus would turn instead to promoting a new album.
