Singer Akon Sued Over Ditched Concert

R&B singer Akon is being sued for $250,000 by Lofraco Belgium promotion agency for canceling a booked concert last October (2009) in Belgium. The promotion agency alleges that Akon pulled out of a performance just eight days before show time, citing “scheduling conflicts” for the last minute cancellation. Akon was booked to perform with his Konvict team (Kardinal Offishall and Colby O’Donis) before the no-show. Lofraco Belgium filed the lawsuit in a New York State Supreme Court, stating that they paid Akon’s booking agents $125,000 for the canceled performance, but were never refunded for it. According to TMZ, the lawsuit cites breach of contract, fraud and concealment. Lofraco is seeking $250,000 to cover their expenses, in addition to million-dollar compensations for punitive damages. Akon has been sued several times in the last three years stemming from assault incidents at his concerts.
