Akon Pays Business Partner $850K To Settle Lawsuit

Akon paid $850k to his former business partner to settle their legal issues.

Devyne Stephens sued Akon over a nearly $4 million lawsuit, claiming that he still owed money from a 2018 settlement agreement.

“This week I fully resolved Devyne Stephens’ court application to freeze my New York assets,” Akon said in a statement via his rep. “Although I have several substantial claims that will be pursued against Stephens in the pending case, I paid him $850,000 – some of which I still challenge – to show the public that he was flat out wrong about any inability to pay the last installment of our prior settlement.”
