Akon has apologized for ‘dry-humping’ a 14 year old girl (preacher’s daughter) on stage in Trinidad last month. As some of you know, the public backlash has been pretty heavy and Verizon have pulled their sponsorship of Gwen Stefani’s tour due to Akon being the opening act. In a statement today, the Senegalese singer apologized and insisted he didn’t know the girl’s age:
“It was never my intention to embarrass or take advantage of my fans in any way, especially those under the age of 18. That is why we tried to make sure that the club did not admit anyone under 18 in the audience. Somehow, that standard was not met.”
I don’t see why all the blame is being laid on Akon. The event was a strictly over 18’s show and she wasn’t supposed to be there. Plus, this chick DOES NOT look or dress like a 14 year old (click here to see pics). I’m not condoning his actions but one has to wonder about the sanity of her parents. Her idiotic preacher father defended his daughter saying ‘They are innocent to the wicked ways of the world and it is our responsibility as elders to keep them safe’. Isn’t it his responsibility to keep her out of the clubs?
What do you think?
