Atlanta transplant and platinum R&B artist, Akon (whose real name is Aliaune Damala Bouga Time Puru Nacka Lu Lu Lu Badara Akon Thiam…no for real…it is!) has recently been called out by one of my favorite sites.? TheSmokingGun revealed today that the singer has lied about his criminal past and is not as “Gangsta” as he professes…
While the performer’s rap sheet does include a half-dozen arrests, Akon has only been convicted of one felony, for gun possession. That 1998 New Jersey case ended with a guilty plea, for which the singer was sentenced to three years probation. Another 1998 bust, this one in suburban Atlanta, has been seized upon by Akon and transformed into the big case that purportedly sent him to prison (thanks to his snitching cohorts) for three fight-filled years. In reality, Akon was arrested for possession of a single stolen BMW and held in the DeKalb County jail for several months before prosecutors dropped all charges against him.
So there was no conviction. There was no prison term between 1999 and 2002. And he was never “facing 75 years,” as the singer claimed in one videotaped interview.
Now Knee-grows lyin bout time they DIDN’T spend in jail! What is this world coming to?? 😕
Check out the video and more of the article after the jump…
Tyler Perry says he has a stalker…and I?think I?know who it is!
?”I’m trying to be careful how I say this without inciting this person, but I have a stalker,” he begins. “This person sends several hundred emails a day to my office and has planned our wedding and bought rings and such.? She has showed up at my house several times. What’s crazy is I’ve never met this woman nor have I even responded to her emails. I’ve had to increase the guards at my house as well as travel with body guards and I hate that. I hate to have big guys following me around.” (Source)

Rumor has it that Alicia Keys is planning to marry her music producer boyfriend Kerry ‘Krucial’ Brothers in New York on the 4th of July.? Getting married on independance day…isn’t that an oxymoron? 😕
Bosses at the 32-bedroom French-style chateau have confirmed a wedding will take place that weekend, but have refused to reveal the identity of the bride and groom.
Keys and Brothers have never spoken openly about their relationship. They have been songwriting partners for years, co-owning the KrucialKeys production company and New York’s Oven Recording Studios. (Source)
