The `Lonely` hitmaker has reportedly failed to pay the final instalment of construction bills on his mansion in Georgia - totalling $51,941 - so the contracting company are taking him to court.
Southern Electric filed the lawsuit against Akon in Georgia Superior Court, claiming it completed over $344,000 of work on his house - including electric work, framing, molding - but he refused to pay the final invoice.
According to the suit, Southern Electric contacted Akon`s mother - who was acting as his agent in the deal - last November, but they have still not received anything.
So they`re now suing for breach of contract for the amount allegedly owed, plus interest.
In 2008, Akon was sentenced to 65 hours of community service for harassing a fan.
The Senegalese-born rapper pleaded guilty to throwing a teenage boy off stage during a New York concert in 2007 and was told he would avoid jail by completing the community service and paying a $250 fine.
Akon - real name Aliaune Thiam - shook hands with the now victim Anthony Smith after entering his plea and apologised to him and his parents, but refused to comment on his sentence.
His lawyer issued a statement saying: "We are pleased the case has been resolved and Akon looks forward to putting this unfortunate incident behind him."
