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.

He's doing what he's supposed to do without creating a war with the mothers. ^5

SN: Chris B is only doing that because he 'hates' the mother of his daughter. SMH

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.

@Tone, he should be taking care of his daughter in the lifestyle according to his income. If she spends the money on foolishness and not on her daughter it's on her conscience.

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

@Bonita, shows the mindset from AA men and A men.

@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
