Akon Teaches Chris Bosh About Taking Care Of Kids

Well isn't this an interesting turn of events. While we're constantly hearing about Ballers dodging child support responsibilities it's great to hear about a Baller actually going in and not only taking responsibility for their actions but making sure they pay what they are legally supposed to pay to ensure their child has a good life. 

According to TMZ

Akon "smacked that" ... and now he's taking responsibility for it -- filing paternity docs in court last month to become the legal father of two children he had out of wedlock. 

The singer filed a Petition for Legitimation in GA Superior Court ... he claims he's the father of two minor sons born in 2008 and 2009. 

In the docs, Akon asks the court to grant him joint legal custody of the little tykes, allow him to be involved in all major decisions and most importantly to establish child support -- even asking that his enormously high income be a factor in how much he'll have to shell out. 

Not only that ... he's also requesting the kids be eligible to inherit from him -- same as if they were born in wedlock -- and to keep his last name, "Thiam" as their own.

Sources close to the singer tell TMZ, "Akon has been a father to the boys since they were born, and this is just a necessary step to make sure he is legally recognized as such." 

FYI -- Akon has made it clear in the past he has multiple kids with at least 3 different baby mamas. 

All I'm saying is that if you're going to have kids, whether with your wife or out of wedlock, make sure your kids are equally as taken care of. Chris Bosh could learn a thing or two from Akon.

Giving kids money does not mean you are Truely taking care of them.

One things for sure, NOT giving your kids any money means you are TRUELY NOT taking of them

Chris bosh daughter gets more money then most people make.  His baby mama just wants a free ride.

Well she gave him the most precious gift anyone can give.  If he can afford to let her ride for free............she should be riding for FREE.

Family is extremely important in the African culture so @Tone trust he is involved.

@Spice, ikr??! I think i'm done with dating black men for a while. I want to see what else there is out here. BM have tooooo many excuses and blame their childhood as the reason why they aint s*** now. Like "growth" has ever been such a bad thing lol

Comment by University of Smitty on September 10, 2012 at 12:59pm

I agree, Spicy.  There use to be a time when men wanted women to stay home and raise their kids.  Nowadays, if it's going to cost them a dime, they'd prefer their kids to be raised by strangers........sad

Tone clearly missed the point. This man these two children in his will so they don't ever have to want for anything. Most negroes won't even put their kids on their insurance. He went out and sought paternity of these kids and asked the judge to take in his income as a factor. Chris Bosh is out here paying less than a fraction of a % of what he makes. Akon travels all the time but I get if he is going through all this for those kids that he is definitely spending time too.

Don't be mad because money never brought you happiness. Akon can buy you a new Macbook.

When is Tone not on some BS. Akon did what every father should do. I applaud him for seeking out paternity. That's the kind of father figure his sons should have, one that seeks responsibility instead of running from it.
