Akon’s baby’s mother is prepared to go to extraordinary lengths to get the singer to pay up on his child support.
Farrah Coleman, the mother of the singer/producer’s youngest son, alleges that she’s tried numerous times to serve Akon with legal papers, but can’t seem to find him. So, she’s threatening to take out an ad in the Los Angeles Times to get his attention.
Despite her claims, the singer/producer was spotted by TMZ paparazzi who questioned him regarding the matter, to which Akon say he wasn’t hard to find.
“I’m a celebrity,” Akon told TMZ cameras. “My schedule is on the Internet. You can go on my MySpace, it’ll tell you where I’m at!”
Via, his lawyer, Akon claims that he’s trying to handle the matter privately, and has been cooperative in doing so thus far.
“Akon has taken responsibility and has been extremely cooperative and proactive in handling this private matter,” said his lawyer in a statement back in July. “Paternity was only established just over 30 days ago. Since the case was filed outside of Georgia jurisdiction, where he is a legal resident, Akon is currently in the process of engaging counsel in California and will continue to handle this matter in a timely manner.”
The singer reportedly raked in around $20 million last year, so money isn’t a problem. He’s is the owner of the Kon Live record label, home to pop princess Lady Gaga.
