Akon, who is making a reported $40,000 per month has been ordered to pay child support in the amount of $5,000 each month to support his two minor sons born out of wedlock in 2008 and 2009.
TMZ has reported that Akon filed a Petition for Legitimization in GA Superior Court. The singer claims he’s the father of two minor sons and has asked that the court; grant him joint legal custody, allow him to be involved in all major decisions, ensure the boys keep his last name of Thiam, and most importantly establish child support.
Dig this, Akon willingly disclosed the high amount of money he’s making for it to be used as a factor in how much child support he should be paying each month to the two boy’s mother.
But there’s more, he also has requested that the kids be eligible to inherit from him just as if they would be able to if they were born in wedlock.
According to the docs, the judge also took into consideration that Akon makes SIX other child support payments each month. Wow! That’s a whole lot of convict music he’s going to need to keep making! But we salute Akon for doing the right thing! Plenty of guys would not have stepped up to the plate like this! Good for him and more importantly, good for his little ones!
