Akon has apologized for getting nasty with a 14-year-old girl onstage in Trinidad last month. The girl turned out to be the daughter of a preacher! Verizon has already pulled themselves as sponsors of Gwen Stefani's tour, because Akon is her opening act.
He said in a statement today, "It was never my intention to embarrass or take advantage of my fans in any way, especially those under the age of 18. That is why we tried to make sure that the club did not admit anyone under 18 in the audience. Somehow, that standard was not met."
Ok, in his defense I'm sure he didn't know she was underage and look what this ho was wearing at the age of 14! It's her preacher daddy's fault. That being said, he still shouldn't have thrown her ass around like she was a rag doll! That shit ain't sexy.
"After reading the media's coverage of my court hearing, I feel the need to correct what I believe are misperceptions about me. I absolutely realize how serious driving under the influence is. I could not live with myself if anyone was injured or killed while I was driving while impaired. Clearly, no one should -- no matter how slightly.
I am ready to face the consequences of violating probation.
No one is above the law. I surely am not. I do not expect to be treated better than anyone else who violated probation. However, my hope is that I will not be treated worse."
