Akon and international lawsuits go hand in hand just like the Hip-Pop star does with holy matrimony.
A little over a month ago, Akon was sued by an Egyptian singer for failing to deliver on his alleged promise of bring Pitbull to a video shoot.
Now it appears that his word is fugazzi yet again as an Australian businessman is accusing the multi-platinum artist of bailing out of a performance two days before it was set to go down and pocketing the $125K he was paid up front.
Akon knows how to spoil a birthday ... pocketing $125K to sing at a rich businessman's private party in Kuala Lumpur ... then allegedly canceling two days before his performance.
Patrick Grove -- an Aussie tech entrepreneur living in Malaysia -- claims he booked Akon for the private birthday bash last April ... working out all of the logistics with Akon's people and paying $125K in advance.
But Grove says he learned two days before the event the "Smack That" singer would be a no-show ... and was told it was because Akon wouldn't be anywhere near Malaysia because his Australian tour had been canceled.
Now Grove -- who's worth about $85 million -- wants his money back -- and then some.
The only lesson to be learned here is that there are plenty of other superstars located in the CONUS who won't let you rich folk down.
