Akon was too busy to show up to court and battle a lawsuit from a leasing company — so now he owes $164,000.
Akon’s been ordered to pay $164,786.99 to a company that leased him some space on the 66th floor of the Empire State Building for his fashion line, Aliaune Milano … this according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
The leasing company, GTFM, said Akon agreed in July of 2012 to pay $25k per month and did so until July of 2015 when he stopped paying rent. GTFM claims Akon’s company finally left in January of 2016, owing almost 7 months of rent.
GTFM had sued Akon, but the singer never responded to the lawsuit, so the judge issued a default judgment.
