Akon is looking at a hefty lawsuit from a former business partner who helped him get his career started.
Devyne Stephens, a music executive who helped launch Akon’s career & Konvict Music label, claims he's supposed to be getting 40% of everything Akon's earned since 2006. He says their contract gives him a cut of record sales, touring rights, royalties and more, but apparently hasn't seen a dime of it yet.
As TMZ points out, Akon has earned over $400 million since 2006 if what Stephens says is true and based on the math. However who knows what he’ll end up getting, and based on the size of the lawsuit it probably won’t be worked out for a while either.
