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.
