Ouch! Singer Akon SLAPPED With A $95,000 Lawsuit From Electric Company + BET’s Being Mary Jane RENEWED For A Second Season

Akon can’t seem to catch a break as a new report claim the singer has been slapped with $95,000 lawsuit from an electric company, this week.

According to RadarOnline, the company filed the suit against the ‘Beautiful’ singer in Georgia on November 26th (2013) for failing to pay $95,000 in “labor and materials” used during renovations of his home in Milton, Georgia. Now, the company wants that amount, with interest.

However, they’re not the only ones coming after Akon for cash. Australian entrepreneur Patrick Grove claimed this week that he recently booked Akon for his birthday party last April. Grove claims he pre-paid the singer $150,000, but he never showed. Now he’s suing for that money, plus damages.

(Via Gossip Grind): And in January he was sued by Egyptian singer Tamer Hosney, who claims he paid Akon $300,000 for both Akon and Pitbull to sing on Hosny’s song “Arabian Knight” and appear in the video. Pitbull never showed, as Akon had allegedly promised, so Hosny wants to recoup his losses.


The two-hour season finale of BET’s Being Mary Jane (starring Gabrielle Union) reportedly pulled in 5.8 million viewers on Tuesday night, including DVR playbacks.

Now, the show’s producers have confirmed that Being Mary Jane has been renewed for second season.

The finale also brought in more than 210,000 tweets, a 179 percent increase over the previous episode, reports Nielsen SocialGuide.

I guess, there’s a lot of Mary Jane’s out here!
