Akon Planning To Sue Suge Knight For Defamation Over “Disgusting” Rape Allegations

Akon has expressed his plans to take legal action against Suge Knight after he accused the rapper of rape on his podcast, Collect Calls With Suge Knight.

According to TMZ, the rapper maintains his innocence by reasserting his denial, despite Knight’s claim on October 24.

He said, “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 clarified that he hasn’t communicated with Knight and alleges that the former Death Row Records executive used an old soundbite without his permission for the podcast.

“I’ve never called, received, or had any contact with Suge Knight since he has been incarcerated,” he said.  “My voice you heard on his podcast was as a soundbite previously recorded from an interview I did with DJ Vlad three years ago regarding Suge Knight in 2009.”

The Senegalese singer then claimed he’d “never been a guest on Suge Knight’s podcast” while also stating that he plans to pray for Knight while mobilizing his legal counsel to subpoena him.

“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.”

According to Akon, he hasn’t had contact with Knight since his incarceration, although they’ve had several encounters over the years.

In 2009, Knight reportedly sued a member of Akon’s team for allegedly knocking him out.
