Keep ‘Em Guessing

Posted by Bossip Staff

Akon 519.1

Akon refuses to deny or confirm claims that he lied about living a life of crime:

“‘We’re doing so many positive things. To go back and focus and put energy on negative things like that, to try to discredit an artist, it makes no sense to me. If there was a motive for it, it would be worth entertaining. I’d rather keep it the way it is and leave the article out there. It only helps me. It’s not something I was trying to glorify or turn back to. It was something I was trying to forget. Actually, it worked out for me in a positive way.’”

Whatever works, right Akon? Just like enforcing “Konvict” stereotypes about black men and crime worked out in a “positive way” for your career. SMH.

Akon the Illusionist

Posted by Bossip Staff

Akon

Akon got caught lying to boost his “street cred”:

“In past interviews, the singer has made it clear that he headed ‘a notorious car theft operation’ that specialized in boosting Porsches, Lamborghinis, and Mercedes, owned four chop shops catering to ‘celebrities and drug dealers,’ and had frequent run-ins with the police.

TSG, however, reports the real story behind his allegedly crimes and prison story. In September 1998, Akon was charged with handgun possession and receiving stolen property. He posted $3,500 bond and was free.”

Basically Akon was caught driving a stolen vehicle, but wasn’t charged with grand theft auto. A Federal Agent lays it out:

“‘Ah, this is bullsh**,’ he [said]. ‘This guy is so phony. He’s an arrogant SOB… I don’t think he had any role besides [wanting] to drive a high-dollar vehicle. And I say this because we didn’t link him to any other cars.’”

This simple-ass individual lied about jail time and thought he wasn’t going to be found out? These things always come to the surface eventually.

Akon Has Gone Country

Posted by Bossip Staff

Akon Top Pop Artist

Akon has gone Nashville on us:

“R&B star Akon has recorded a “secret” country and western record and released it under an alias in a bid to be the first successful black artist in the genre. The ‘Lonely’ singer is a big fan of country music and is determined to conquer the genre but is convinced that fans of the music would not buy the records if they were released under his real name.

And the 34-year-old insists he is already on his way to making it big as a country star as he has already released his first single – and it has been a major success. He says, ‘No black artist has ever broken into the genre. I’m going in under a secret alias and I’ve already got my first hit record.’”

He recorded the album under a secret alias. What is his midnight ass gonna do when it’s time to shoot a music video? Hire a redneck country stand in? This is about to be some more Milli Vanilli sh*t.

Man of The Year

Posted by Bossip Staff

AkonMugShot

Despite his recent run-ins with the law, Akon officially made 2007 his year. Billboard has announced Akon as the Pop Artist of the Year. The release of his album Konvicted, as well as a host of singles certified that the 40+ singer will continue to rule the charts. Too bad for his ex boo. Some girls wouldn’t mind being wife #27 with a man of his stature.

Akon is Only 34???

Akon showed up to court today to plead not guilty to charges of endangering a minor and harassment for body slamming a white kid at a concert. The parents of the boy have pulled out their Ezel “slippin on some soap” come-up game.

Some media outlets are reporting Akon’s age as 34 based on court documents. Damn, we thought he was pushin’ 40.

Body Slammer Will Face Charges

Posted by Bossip Staff

Akon Hard Rock Cafe

Akon will face criminal charges after his crowd tossing incident back in June. Akon body-slammed some kid from the crowd at Fishkill-based WSPK (104.7 FM)’s annual KFEST concert at Dutchess Stadium in New York. A girl was injured and suffered from a concussion, and now Akon must appear in a Fishkill, NY court Monday morning for arraignment.

He’ll just be charged with a misdemeanor for endangering the welfare of a minor and second-degree harassment, no big deal. His old ass just needs to know to quit it with the crowd participation. We all remember what happened when he freaked that 14-yr. old Pastor’s daughter at a performance.

Couldn’t Handle the Big Love

Posted by Bossip Staff

Akon Rachel Ritfeld

Akon who has denied being a polygamist and lies about his age will not be getting married to twenty-three year old model Rachel Ritfeld. The British beauty opens up about not being able to be one of Akon’s wives:

“The reality check really came when Akon told me he had his fifth child with one of his wives. For the first few months I got completely freaked out because even though I knew he had other wives, I never really thought about him being with them because his main attention was always on me – or so I thought. He does not live with his wives but the birth of his latest child made everything become real and made me realize that I would always have to share the man I love while accepting his other relationships. At first I was very supportive but I began to question that if I was taking him into consideration and he was taking his family into consideration, who was taking me into consideration? The answer was ‘nobody’ so I decided I could no longer be apart of Akon’s world.” Continue »
