Akon is being sued by one of his producers who claims the singer hid financial information from him to avoid paying his royalties, reports TMZ.

Leland Clopton claims Akon’s record label, Konvict Entertainment, kept him in the dark for years to avoid paying what he was owed in royalties. According to the docs, he produced a number of songs for Akon, but only saw some income statements for a few.

Clopton alleges that the cover-up was done intentionally so that Akon could pocket Clopton’s royalty checks. He accuses Akon of a “pattern of racketeering activity.”

Clopton says he’s potentially lost millions since he began working with Akon in 2008. He’s seeking at least $1 million in damages and for his contract with Akon to be terminated.
