    Like any businessman looking to protect his investment portfolio, singer/producer/songwriter Akon, who helped Lady Gaga come up and climb to fame in the late aughts, has gone on record to say that he no longer works with her and bounced before her stock crashed, so to speak.

    He said, "Actually I cashed out. I got out while the gooding was hot. It's like a business, you build it to sell it. When I got it to the peak of where I felt it couldn't go nowhere, and there was nowhere left to go but down, I cashed out, in other words I sold my share and got out before it was too late."

    Check out his chat below.



    What do you think of Akon's comments? Sure, they are very honest and very much an assessment of Gaga's career path, but he is a businessman who has to take care of his business. It was not personal at all.
