Akon is once again in the news for spending lavishly on one of his 7 wives. The "Locked Up" singer reportedly paid $1 million for his wife Tricia Ana's plastic surgery. But Black Twitter says he was robbed.

MTO News spoke with a close friend of Akon's who claims the African rapper and mogul paid as much as $1,000,000 for silicone and reconstruction surgery for Tricia.

"Akon made sure that everything she had was top of the line - including whatever surgeries she had," the friend told MTO News.

Tricia, who stars with Akon in the upcoming Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, is one of the singer's seven wives. She exchanged vows with Akon in his native Senegal a few years ago.

The 46-year-old Aries has six children with as many wives. Polygamy (one man with multiple wives) is perfectly legal in Africa.

Akon was pictured out and about in SoHo, New York City with another one of his wives on August 22. The shapely woman appears to be in her thirties. She wore a curve-fitting sleeve dress and high heeled strappy sandals.

Akon is a record label owner, music producer and artist, best known for his hit singles including "I Wanna Love You", "Locked Up" and "Smack That".
