Akon’s Baby Mama Takes Out Child Support Ad in LA Times
Akon's baby mama is going to new lengths to reach him for unpaid child support. Sara Coleman, the mother of the singer/producer's youngest son, alleges that he has been dodging process servers for months, so she's blasting Akon with an ad in the Los Angeles Times in order to get his attention.
Ironically, the paparazzi recently had no problem catching up with the Sengal native at a New York airport, where he shared some advice for whoever can't seem to reach him. "I'm a celebrity," Akon said. "My schedule is on the Internet. You can go on my MySpace, it'll tell you where I'm at!"
Coleman, who initially wanted the child support matter to remain private, is now singing a different tune. Her lawyers allegedly went so far as to attempt to serve the award-winning artist at Michael Jackson's funeral, but to no avail.
Akon, on the other hand claims to not be hiding. "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."
There's no doubt Akon has more than enough dough to spread around. He raked in $20 million in 2008 due in part to his KonLive record label, which is home to pop princess Lady Gaga.
