Suge Knight‘ makes a bold statement about Akon on his new podcast “Collect Call,” accusing Akon of raping underage girls in the studio… an explanation that could land Suge in court.
Akon tells TMZ Hip Hop … the claims are false, and he does not stand for the defamation. He says: “I must make it very clear that I absolutely deny these outrageously false and disgusting claims that Suge Knight made about me on his podcast.”
“I have never called, received or had any contact with Suge Knight since he has been in prison. My voice heard on his podcast was like a soundbite previously recorded from an interview I did with DJ Vlad three years ago about Suge Knight in 2009.”
He continues, “I have never been a guest on Suge Knight’s podcast. I always believe in building positivity in the world and my actions and legacy have spoken to that.”
“It is unfortunate that I have to defend myself against these lies and I will involve my legal team in filing a defamation lawsuit against Mr. Knight. My prayers for him will still continue.”
In 2020, Akon spoke about a violent confrontation between Suge and Akon’s road manager… which he said stemmed from a business dispute between himself, Suge and Detail.
TMZ broke the story in 2009… So was Suge left KO’ed on the sidewalk and a man in Akon’s camp, Robert Carnes Jr.was arrested for misdemeanor assault in Scottsdale, AZ.
As we first reported… Suge launched his podcast with the founder of The Source magazine Dave Meis to discuss his colorful history as the founder of Death Row. He records the pod while serving 28 years for voluntary manslaughter.
