However, they're not the only ones coming after Akon for cash.

Australian entrepreneur Patrick Grove claimed this week that he recently booked Akon for his birthday party last April. Grove claims he pre-paid the singer $150,000, but he never showed. Now he's suing for that money, plus damages.

And in January he was sued by Egyptian singer Tamer Hosney, who claims he paid Akon $300,000 for both Akon and Pitbull to sing on Hosny's song "Arabian Knight" and appear in the video. Pitbull never showed, as Akon had allegedly promised, so Hosny wants to recoup his losses.

As has reported, Akon's brother is also currently fighting over money in court: The Def Jam executive's ex wants him to reveal how much he got paid from big celebs like Lady Gaga and Kanye West in their ongoing custody case.
