Akon sued for diving from stage
Los Angeles: Akon has been hit with a lawsuit from a concert worker who alleges he was left physically disabled after the R&B singer jumped on him during a gig.
Matthew Graham claims he sustained permanent injuries after Akon "negligently or wantonly leapt into the overcrowded mass of concertgoers" while performing at the BayFest music festival in Mobile, Alabama, in 2009.
In his lawsuit, Graham claims he severely hurt his knee, back and head during the incident, reports tmz.com.
He is suing the ‘Lonely’ hitmaker and the organisers BayFest, Inc. for medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain and mental anguish.
