Akon Explains Why He Doesn’t Believe in Monogamy


Republic RecordsAkon may be a married man, but he doesn’t believe in practicing monogamy.

During an interview with Larry King Now, the singer explained how his wife has accepted his stance on being faithful. “She loves me for who I am,” Akon says before revealing that it would “bother” him if she wasn’t monogamous.
