Akon’s learning the hard way that giving the cold shoulder never pays … especially when it comes to lawsuits, cause now he’s gotta cough up tons of dough.
Akon has been ordered to pay $164,786 to a company that leased him some space on the 66th floor of the Empire State Building for his fashion line, Aliaune Milano, TMZ reports, citing legal documents obtained.
The leasing company, GTFM, said Akon agreed in July 2012 to pay $25k per month and did so until July 2015 when he stopped paying rent.
The company said Akon’s firm finally left in January 2016, owing almost seven months of rent.
GTFM had sued Akon, but the singer never responded to the lawsuit, so the judge issued a default judgment.
