Egyptian Singer

Sues Akon

For Not Having Pitbull on a Leash

Rapper Pitbull torpedoed a famous Egyptian singer's music video -- after the singer spent hundreds of thousands to produce it -- and it's all Akon's fault ... this according to a new lawsuit.

Singer Tamer Hosny filed the suit against Akon ... claiming he paid the singer $300K for both him and Pitbull to sing on Tamer's new song "Arabian Knight."

Akon delivered the track -- but according to the lawsuit, in return for the $300K ... Akon and Pitbull were supposed to appear in the "Arabian Knight" music video ... but Pitbull was a no show.

Tamer claims Akon promised to deliver Pitbull for the shoot, so it's his fault and he's on the hook.

Tamer says it's double the disaster because he had to pay $100K for cameras and crew the day of the shoot ... all for nothing.

For some reason ... Pitbull was not sued.

Calls to Akon's camp weren't returned.

Why do you think the USA has borders? The whole point of a border is to say who comes in and who doesn't.

It was meant for White people, White people wrote: 'for ourselves and OUR posterity'- preamble to the constitution.

Creating a brown mixture of this and that in ALL & ONLY White countries is an act of Genocide.

You are pushing White Genocide.

"For some reason...Pitbull was not sued..." Perhaps that's because you mentioned several times that the guy blames AKON because he's the one he made the deal with. It's official: TMZ lets their staffers write stoned.
