    Verizon Wireless has pulled its sponsorship from the Gwen Stefani tour currently in progress, in response to a previously reported incident involving Stefani's opening act Akon and his provocative on-stage dance with a minor.

    Stefani's manager expressed disappointment over Verizon's decision, saying, "Akon has been a perfect gentleman on this tour. His show has at best been a PG show. Children of all ages have been attending. We have had no complaints—nothing but satisfied people. And I would say that we're shocked that Verizon would drop Gwen Stefani as part of this whole debate."

    Verizon has also pulled Akon ringtones and music from its stores and handsets, along with a V Spot commercial featuring an Akon promotion.
