Akon — Sued in $39,000 Lawyer Battle

“s in the process of learning a very valuable lesson — don”t piss off your lawyers … because they”re experts in legal ass-beatings.

According to a new lawsuit, filed in Georgia, the “Smack That” singer hired a bunch of lawyers last year at a firm called Yoss — then refused to pay them $39, 363.74 for legal services. Now, they”ve responded by doing what they do best … suing his pants off for breach of contract.

It”s not entirely clear what the legal work entailed — but sources tell our sources, it involved civil/business matters.

Akon filed his own response in the suit — insisting their claims are BS … and vowing to fight back.

Akon is now asking a judge to dismiss the case. Stay tuned!
