Flooring Company Slaps $15K Lien On Rapper’s House

Akon really, really, really hates paying those who work on his Georgia home – well it appears that way.

The singer has been hit with another lien by a home construction company who accuse him of screwing them out of $15,000, despite them fixing up his pad.

The company, Capital Floors LLC, which specialize in installing of hardwood floors – filed a claim of lien against Akon, accusing the producer of stiffing the company out of $15,000.

Capital Floors head Naftali Yair said they performed tile work on the singer’s Atlanta mansion, and bill was to be paid by June 23rd. But he said Akon hasn’t paid them a dime.
“He cost me my health,” Yair, who is now battling heart problems, told BOSSIP. “I was just in the hospital. He needs to be in jail.”

Akon has been remodeling the manse for years, and it has caused him a lot of trouble. He’s facing multiple lawsuits by companies and being slapped with numerous liens for not paying for work done.

Last year, a company named Durable Steel Structures filed legal docs in Georgia which claimed Akon refused to pay up on a $36,765 bill for structural work they did on his property. They said they provided the singer with services, furnishing, materials and equipment and completed the job – but when it came time for Akon to pay the invoice he refused.

The company filed a material man’s lien against Akon’s property, which means if he ever sells it off, they will get the debt owed to them from the sale of the home.

Construction companies that also worked on Akon’s pad hit him with two previous liens. Lazer Stucco, along with Clearvue Glass & Mirror Co. said he refused to pay up on invoices for $18,745 and $4,670 following work they did for him.
