Akon

Sued Over $51k Construction Bill

Pay Up Right Na Na Na Na Na

2/21/2012 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Akon is up to his neck in $51,000 of construction bills on his Georgia mansion.
Akon
is up to his neck in $51,000 of construction bills on his Georgia mansion ... and he still hasn't paid up -- this according to a new lawsuit filed by a local contracting company.

Southern Electric filed the lawsuit against Akon in Georgia Superior Court, claiming it completed over $344,000 of work on Akon’s place -- electric work, framing, molding -- but he refused to pay $51,941 on their final invoice.

According to the suit, Southern Electric contacted Akon’s mommy last November ... not just to tattle, but because his mother was acting as his agent in the deal ... but still, S.E. has not received a dime.

They’re now suing for breach of contract for the amount allegedly owed, plus interest.
 
FYI -- Akon’s Georgia palace is a two-story four-bedroom, eight-bath model that he forked over 1.65-MILLION clams for.  Calls to his rep have not been returned.

This is bad reporting on the part of TMZ. A man doesn't pay the majority of a bill without disclosing to the debtor why he won't pay the rest. Akon has the money - a fool knows this. TMZ should report both sides of the story or not report it at all.

Yeah, he doesn't pay because he's black and it's entirely impossible that the company did shoddy work. And it's all Obama's fault anyway. Hurr durr durr!

- Akon’s Georgia palace is a two-story four-bedroom, eight-bath model ... see that's what I'm talking about [EIGHT BATHROOMS] that's one of the more dumber austentacious moves I've heard from those ghetto/huts to riches types. I get it, back in his homeland things were rough where having a bathroom probably made a person the king of the hill... but dude, you could have taken the money you blew on that nonsense and given it to your people to assist them in their poverty... I notice charitable giving isn't the mindset of Blacks when they reach the top [UNLESS THERE'S A LOT OF FANFARE]... and pay your bills!! stop insulting your race. What is it about you people? Always ripping off somebody, it it's not the government it somebody else... it's so normal that there's no community condemnation... I KNOW FOR A FACT, Martin Luther King Jr. would be OUTRAGED if he could see that the dream has turned into a nightmare.

TO THE RACISTS: The more likely scenario is that he is withholding payment for some reason. Anyone with half a brain knows that Akon can pay the entire bill in his sleep.
