“Can’t Read My Poker Face” and “I’m Not a Businessman, I’m a Business, Man.”
It’s open sesame on these two and (if you’re interested) you may soon be able to gauge both their lyrical gallantry as being true (or no).
Both artists are just a couple of the many on the Def Jam label indirectly involved in a domestic wrangle where singer Akon’s brother (Def Jam exec Abou Thiam, 34) is involved in a nasty child support dispute with his ex-wife Ariel Hakim who, according to reports, is having subpoenaed-all the financial records by which he’s involved and invested [in]. That roster includes the likes of Rihanna, Young Jeezy, Kanye West, Chris Brown and Lady Gaga:
- Salaries paid
- Business Tax Returns
- Documents of Business Deals
- Evidence of Gifts, Loans, and Other Compensation
Thiam claims to have only earned $30,000.00.
Hakim believes Thiam’s earnings has increased since their first child support agreement was established by the courts.
All financial records from the split date (May 2010) through to the date of the custody trial (April 7, 2014, in Georgia) are being thoroughly combed through so that Hakim can make Thiam pay more child support for their daughter’s care. She is demanding a complete review of his financial earnings, including what he is paid from his being employed by Rihanna, Young Jeezy, Chris Brown and LadyGaga. However, it is being reported that the odd-man out in this may turn out to be non-other than Kanye West–we won’t be able to read his Poker chips.
