Akon To File Defamation Lawsuit Against Suge Knight

Lyndon Abioye |

Akon is filing a defamation suit against Suge Knight after Suge alleged the “Locked Up” rapper raped a 13-year-old girl years back.

“I need to make it very clear that I absolutely deny these outrageous false and disgusting claims Suge Knight made on his podcast about me,” Akon said in a statement to Complex. “I‘ve never called, received, or had any contact with Suge Knight since he has been incarcerated.”

“My voice you heard on his podcast was a soundbite previously recorded from an interview I did with DJ Vlad 3 years ago regarding Suge Knight in 2009,” Akon continued. “I’ve never been a guest on Suge Knight’s podcast. I always believe in building positivity into the world and my actions and legacy have spoken to that. It’s unfortunate that I have to defend myself from these lies and I will be involving my legal team in filing a defamation lawsuit against Mr. Knight, my prayers for him will still continue.”

Suge Knight made the shoocking allegations during an interview with David Mays.
