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".

    I’ll be wife #8 and I don’t require 1 million in surgery he can just give me the 1 million to do with as I please since I come already made and put together

  • Fire & Ice

    The one in the pic with him has a better-looking body. Her body appears to be natural. Do these build a bear women, realize how deformed they look???

  • Truth ???

    "I come ready made and put together" ????

  • cristalle1

    In the Muslim faith, polygamy states that man just has to show he can financially aupport the wives and children and he can keep marrying. Akon's money must be very long to support so many wives. Does anyone know if he is Muslim or is this just the rule from where he is from?

  • Carrington

    I wonder if guys like this just don't CARE that they wouldn't have the women they have if they didn't come with a phat a$$ed bank account. I don't want NO hoe that wouldn't want me if I've been at the post office for 30 years.

    These broads DAMN sure wouldn't agree to be ONE of his wifes if he was Akon Booker from the south side of Chicago. How low does your self esteem have to be to purchase women and call them your wife when they wouldn't even LOOK at your a$$ under normal circumstances?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    They haven’t a clue all they know is they now have a bit something that they NEVER had and they think that’s the only thing they need to get a man. I hear many women say an if I just had a butt ????? I’m like dang that all you think you got to offer is a butt? What about beauty? What about brains? What about talent? What about love? No all they want is a butt or breast or both it’s so crazy to me

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Yep ? take me right on out the box no assembly required

  • Jai

    This!!! I'd be like Akon, hunny I'll look into the surgery but first wire me the 1,000,000 and I'll look up celebrity before and after plastic surgery photos while my lawyer drafts up divorce papers. Because nikka barely have $10 worth of looks but expect me to look like $1,000,000 plastic barbie...need invest in himself first!

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    from what I’m told it’s Power ! Most men get money and they feel they have power and can obtain whatever they want including seven wives it don’t matter if he was broke they wouldn’t want him what matters is bish I got you now which is why some of them don’t treat the women like nothing cuz they feel they can replace them. Me personally I don’t want you if you wouldn’t look at me at my lowest

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    These dudes don't care bro. They know what's up. Both sides know what's up. It's like these not-so-handsome athletes who wife-up these banging video-model chicks. They know if they weren't rich the women wouldn't want to be with them. But the woman is a trophy that his money is able to get for him him, just like his big mansion or his Lamborghini. It's just transactional... he gets a dime-piece woman, and she gets herself financial security. Always been that way, and always will be.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    ?????? You always say what I’m trying to say in simple terms ?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Can I point out the pic of this wife with the surgery also has that bleached complexion that the Africans that bleach have it’s not light skin it’s more like a dull ashy white skin

  • https://nylapoprush.com/home twitch.tv/NylaPop

    They don't care. To them, the fact that their money is long enough to 'pull' women like this is a sense of achievement.

  • Facts and Receipts

    He is a Muslim

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    What's crazy is the ones that do these risky surgeries and get badly deformed (and some have even died) from these operations. Trying to be cute, or trying to snag a man with a build-a-body... and putting their very lives at risk over it. Just sad.

  • Kimocha

    I would GLADLY take Akon Booker whose been working at the post office for 30 yrs in a heart beat!... Shiiid them some good ass benefits right there!

  • Carrington

    Hell no!! But, that's what they do. Get money and then trade in the woman who was with his ass when he was making payment arrangements with Sprint for a woman who wouldn't even LOOK at your a$$ if you weren't a celebrity.

  • Carrington

    LMAO!

  • Tinytoon

    Eniko knocked off every other chick to be called Mrs. Kevin Hart. She went to the island & was victorious. But if dude was still working at Foot Locker, she wouldn't give him the time of day.

  • Starburst

    Isn't that Naomi Campbell?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    Just saw where this lady traveled from her home state with her mom to another state to have actual doctor to do her butt and lipo and he punctured her intestines 8 times even these doctors mess up it’s just crazy ain’t no way every time I think about lipo cuz I can use a little in my mid section I take my country ass to the gym I’m not about to die about a flat stomach

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Funny thing is, I'm not even mad at women like that any more. I used to call women like that "materialistic", "gold-diggers" etc. but now, not so much. Realistically... if you know you're a 9.5 or a 10, and can get a millionaire to marry you, I guess why not? If it's just as easy to marry poor man as a rich man, then I guess it makes sense to go for the rich dude if you can.

  • cristalle1

    Thanks

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I mean he can afford it. I personally don't have a problem with polygamous relationships for other people. I mean if everyone is aware, over the age of 18 and consenting....do you.

  • tintin

    his other wife is hot, she looks good.
    but that Tricia chick, a hot mess. she ooogly.

    BTW Does Akon still have money?

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    ?

  • KLove

    plenty

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    Chile... Akon had hardly ANY money 19 yrs ago when this ninja had us by the backdoor of this spot on South Beach waiting for his “hookup” to come let us in.. After about 10 mins waiting, while he was playing on his phone, I saw my homeboy and we walked through the Front door of the establishment and left his greasy a$$ at the rear?? Cornball

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He owns a record label and still owns the publishing rights to all his music (which is where the real money is in the industry), so I'm gonna assume he still has some solid money coming in.

  • Bree

    Seven wives!? He has to be a paid man to take care of seven thirsty women. I'm stingy when it comes to the dough my husband brings into our home. Hell, he barely spends it, he just signs the check over to me. So I'll be damned if a million dollar is spent on silicone and other surgeries or anything for someone else.

    More power to the women accepting their roles as sister wives. I refuse to be a man's option.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Gang stalkers are what they are

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I don't believe he actually spent $1,000,000 though. That sounds like internet hype to me.

  • https://nylapoprush.com/home twitch.tv/NylaPop

    That's why they said he got robbed lmao

  • gellie

    I always giggle when men and women bemoan, 'Oh, she wouldn't even look at him if he didn't have that money.' Well duh!! Why do think he chose her?? Do you think Kevin Hart didn't know that Echo Chamber was a gold digger?? Of course he knew!!! He wanted a woman he couldn't get when he didn't have no money. If he was looking for anything deeper, he would've stayed with the first wife. She loved him when he was selling sneakers for $5/hour. That's why it doesn't benefit women to Build-A-Bob...soon as y'all come up, you beeline it the chicks you couldn't get when you were broke.

  • Carrington

    Oh, I've never been mad at a woman who will choose a millionaire over a hundredaire... but I do have a problem when you will ONLY choose those guys and dog out the good guys for them... if I had a doorter and she liked a guy an assistant manager at Footlocker 52% and a thoracic surgeon 43%... guess which one deddy going to push for? You can learn to love the rest.
    That's why I ain't mad at Kris Jenner.

    A LOT of women nowadays are gay for pay too! Women aren’t discriminating! If your bread is LONG, there will ALWAYS be someone waiting to spend it with you... Male or female!

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    They suffer from mental illness so they have no idea until it is too late.. Sort of like K Michelle

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Yeah, I can believe that. I once heard a lesbian say she'd be OK with marrying a man if his money was right and he could give her financial security. ?

  • gellie

    By the way, this isn't a zero sum game when it comes to means. A gainfully employed man who works at the Post Office is more than enough security for MOST women. You should have absolutely no problem finding a quality wife when you have a good job with benefits. That being said, you're not going to be able to dive in the same pool of applicants as the Akons of the world. Too many regular dudes are mad cause they can't get IG models or the type of baddies that can snatch an athlete. You shouldn't compare yourselves to guys in whole entirely different tax brackets.

    I absolutely agree with your statement and I expect men to do the same.

    I also don’t like it when the good guys get dogged out either.

    And sometime people act like rich guys don’t have money or aren’t fun or can’t be good people.

    Overall, I think money just makes males/females put up with more cause there are more benefits.

    I get lighter in the winter so I don’t automatically say “oh they bleached” however it was so apparent due to the weird shade of their skin. It made me very sad!!

    Better to spend $1M than to cheap out and wind up dead.

  • Tammie Reed

    Very true... Alot of women are unwilling sister wives anyways.

  • Li-Wright

    I don't believe he spent $1Million. He's African and they are "cheap." And he's got 7 wives to take care of. He probably paid 1/10 of that Million and he's just bragging (lying) about the $1million to up his stature. (Do we know that he's not pimping his wives?)

    Good news. Too many lawsuits?
