Akon Hey Mom, Merry Early XMAS Take My Home, Please
11/23/2015 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Akon already feels the holiday spirit ... he just turned over the deed to his Atlanta home to his mom.
It's a 5 bedroom pad about an hour outside of the ATL. Akon bought the home a decade ago for $293k but his digs are now much grander ... a mansion in the Atlanta burbs.
The bond between Akon and his mom goes beyond blood. They both devote a lot of time to the Konfidence Foundation, which helps kids in West Africa. She's the president/CEO.
There might be another reason for the transfer ... Akon's got a bunch of outstanding tax liens ... so it'll be a lot harder for Uncle Sam to go after the crib.

Sources on scene say the way the seating chart is configured now, Justin and Selena are not sitting side by side for Sunday night's award show.

As of this posting their place cards are sitting on chairs that are NOT side by side, but there's still time to rejigger things.
FUN FACT: The last time Jelena went to the AMAs together was in 2011.

Jay's Roc Nation manages Cotto, and it seems Jay knew the handwriting was on the wall before the judges gave Canelo the unanimous decision. Beyonce also doesn't look amused.
On the other hand, Oscar De La Hoya was pumped ... he manages Canelo. He also won a $100k bet from Jay Z, who will ante up to the charity of Oscar's choice. Oscar talked about the bet on TMZ Sports ... which by the way is on FS1 weekdays at midnight ET, 9 PM PT.
A good time was had by some.
