    Just days after Akon issued a lawsuit against American Talent Agency over unpaid performances and accusations of forgery, his ex-booking company has addressed the case via an official statement:

    "Akon's accusations of failure to pay earned performance fees and bookings of unapproved appearances and performances are untrue. Furthermore, the accusations that American Talent Agency continued to book Akon post termination in September 2010 are at odds with the fact that Akon willingly performed on the Summer Beatz Festival in Australia in November 2010, a booking secured through American Talent Agency."

    What do you think of Akon's battle with his talent agency?
