Akon Stepping Up To The Plate To Care For Sons

Akon and KidsAkon is stepping up to the plate and taking some responsibility for his actions. The singer filed paternity documents last month to become the legal father of two kids that he had out of wedlock. The singer filed the Legitimation in Georgia Superior Court, and claims that he is the biological father of two sons who were born in 2008 and 2009.

Akon is asking in the documents for the court to grant him joint legal custody of his sons, and allow him to be a part of all the major decisions in their lives and also to establish child support. He even asked that his high income be considered when the court decides just how much of that money he’ll have to shell out in child support.

Akon is also asking that his kids be eligible to inherit from him just as if they had been born in wedlock and that they keep his last name “Thiam.” A source close to the singer says that Akon has been a dad to the boys since they were born, but now he is taking the legal steps to ensure that he is recognized as such. Akon has made it pretty clear in the past that he also has other children with three separate baby mamas.

At least he is stepping up to the plate and doing what it takes to make sure he does not shirk any of the responsibilities that he has as a father. In today’s society where most men try to weasel out of their responsibilities, it’s odd to see one who is doing so much for the children he’s fathered.

The 39 year old hip hop star says that he has very healthy relationships with all his children and that he would like to keep his family protected from the media. It is a bit unclear just how many children that is however. According to an interview the singer gave, there may be as many as six, and at least two of them were with his wife Tomeka. Akon says that his conversion to Islam is what has helped him to become a better person and gives him guidance in life on how to act with others.Akon

Akon has said that a new reality show is in the works. The new show will be called “My Brother’s Keeper.” Akon two nearly identical brothers will go around Atlanta, posing as the singer and attempting to get as much of the VIP treatment as they can. Akon claims that people have mistaken his brothers for him numerous times and this is what the show is based on.
