Akon Wins Lawsuit Against Singer Over Pitbull
theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, Akon is victorious in the $300k legal battle with an Egyptian singer – over a scrapped music video that was to feature Pitbull – with a jury
reaching a verdict in the case in favor of him.
Here’s the latest: A Georgia jury heard the testimony for both sides (Akon and singer Tamer Hosny) and reached a verdict. The jury came back with a decision in favor of Akon and against Hosny.
Per their decision, all claims against the singer/producer are dismissed and he was found not to be liable for the $300k in alleged damages by the singer. The case was closed the same day.
Here’s the backstory: Back in 2015, Egyptian singer Tamer Hosny sued Akon accusing him of
screwing him out of $300k. He said Akon promised he would deliver Pitbull to be on his new song and appear in his music video.
Hosny said both the Akon and Pitbull delivered their parts for the track, but when it came time to shoot the video – which he dropped hundreds of thousands on — … Pitbull never showed. Akon responded, claiming that he wasn’t even paid the full $300k, only receiving $145k. He demanded the lawsuit be tossed. The case had dragged on for close to two years.
