Akon copped to reports that he bought French Montana a fake Hublot watch but said he didn’t know it was a fake.
“He was happy, I was happy. We lit, we lit. Now mind you I’m not really knowing there’s specific brands [of] watches and all that, I wasn’t really a watch guy. I just saw something I liked that looked nice and I got it. French clearly went to his jeweler and got it checked out, and the jeweler was like, ‘Yo, this is fake,'” he said on Real 92.3’s The Cruz Show.
Akon said he didn’t take the news well at first.
“I was like, ‘What do you mean fake? The sh-t tick, don’t it? The sh= t work, right?’ Not only was I upset because I paid, like, $5,000 for each watch…In my mind that was expensive for a watch. But obviously for a Hublot that was no money, that was a huge discount. So I’m like, ‘This ungrateful ass n-gga.'”
