Couldn’t Handle the Big Love

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.”

“The one thing I wanted from Akon was for him to be monogamous to me but he could not grant me my wish. I thought I could handle the idea of becoming one of his wives in the beginning but who’s to say some other woman he meets won’t capture his heart? I soon realised that he was not the man for me. There were times when I wanted us to share quality time together like ordinary couples do, such as going out to dinner or cuddling up together in front of the TV but it was always impossible. I had to always wait until he had time out of his busy schedule or wait until I had a day-off so I could fly half way around the world to see him. The situation began to become a strain on my heart.”

Damn, the old man is bagging bangin broads and straining their hearts. SMH at Rachel still playing Akon’s song “Nobody” on her Myspace page. Poor thang.

  • joe

    i don’t even think its a cultural thing anymore, its a pre-historic thing.

    my family is from central west africa and you can have a wedding ceremony where the couple pledges to not practice poligamy.

    so, it’s a personal decision. which is why i ask, are women still stupid in the 21st century?


    Oh well. He’ll find someone else to take her place soon enough.

  • Mary J Blige

    lol! co-sign with Fiddy. I wouldn’t share Kendu with anyone.

    @ ‘a big shame’

    I said Akon is ugly because he is ugly, irrespective of skin tone.

  • hey

    so how old is Akon really? and how many wives does he have? anyway, i don’t understand why some women get into relationships knowing that a guy is not legit (for goodness sakes she knew he had WIVES) then think that they can change the man. come on now.

  • hey

    o and she reminds me of Vanessa Manilla Folders or whatever her name is.

  • Smartie

    I wonder if she would’ve even given that blurple monster the time of day if he was a broke unknown.

    @ Hey- I said the same thing about her looking like out of work Vanessa in the other pics.

  • The Goddess

    Ok, she’s not a very bright star. Why would she EVEN CONSIDER marrying him KNOWING he has other WIVES? Plus he’s not all that great to look at. COME ON!!!

  • Angie

    Its unfair that those of you that do not know anything about Racheal would want to call her a Ho, here in the UK we know she is a very sucesfull model who has done mainstream national campaigns such as for Axe deos, appeared on our version of the show Heidi Klum do’es in the US

    (I forget the name)

    As well as appearing in the MTV UK showHip Hop Honeys and videos by 50 cent and many others.
