Akon is up to his neck in $51,000 of construction bills on his Georgia mansion … and he still hasn’t paid up — this according to a new lawsuit filed by a local contracting company.

Southern Electric filed the lawsuit against Akon in Georgia Superior Court, claiming it completed over $344,000 of work on Akon’s place — electric work, framing, molding — but he refused to pay $51,941 on their final invoice.

According to the suit, Southern Electric contacted Akon’s mommy last November … not just to tattle, but because his mother was acting as his agent in the deal … but still, S.E. has not received a dime.

They’re now suing for breach of contract for the amount allegedly owed, plus interest.

FYI — Akon’s Georgia palace is a two-story four-bedroom, eight-bath model that he forked over 1.65-MILLION clams for. Calls to his rep have not been returned.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________
Scott Storch tried to hide a baggie of cocaine in a trash can at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Vegas before cops arrived … this according to the police report, obtained by TMZ.

In the report, the arresting officer says cops fished out the baggie after receiving a tip from hotel security … and discovered it contained 2.7 grams of blow.

Hip-hop producer Scott Storch — a recovering drug addict — was arrested in Vegas earlier this month for possession of cocaine … TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement, Storch was arrested at a Vegas hotel around 8:30 AM on Feb. 4.

Sources tell us … the arrest went down after an employee called police to complain that Storch wouldn’t pay for his room.

When cops arrived to the scene, we’re told officers discovered Storch was in possession of cocaine. Storch was hauled to a nearby police station … where he was released on $5k bond.

Storch — who has worked with stars like Beyoncé, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre, Snoop, Pink and more — famously blew a $30 million fortune after getting hooked on drugs back in 2006. He eventually checked into rehab and has been working on his recovery ever since.

Say It Ain’t So, Chris Brown on Rhianna’s New Song

Rihanna and Chris Brown are reuniting for the Bajan beauty’s ‘Talk That Talk’ track ‘Birthday Cake,’ co-produced by Da Internz, and the news is sure to upset one-sided fans, Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran and critics.

Earlier this week, the producers of the song hinted to MTV News that “the feature on [the remix] is gonna shock the world.” Now, MissInfo.tv reports that Chris Brown is indeed on thenew version of ‘Birthday Cake’ and is even in the accompanying video, which was revealed to her by two unnamed sources. The ‘Fortune’ creator supplied two verses for the song: one where he’s singing and another where he’s rapping in the spirit of his Busta Rhymes and Lil Wayne-assisted hit ‘Look at Me Now.’

Earlier this week, the two attended the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, where they both performed. The event was the first time Brown and Rihanna made an appearance at the prestigious ceremony following the highly publicized 2009 domestic violence assault, which resulted in the latter being beaten by the ‘Turn Up the Music’ crooner.

Reports surfaced that Brown also showed up at Rihanna’s early birthday party — she celebrates her actual born day on Feb. 20 — at the Hearst mansion in Beverly Hills. The 22-year-old singer arrived with Rihanna, 23, according to MissInfo.tv. He stayed throughout the night and apparently, the two were more than platonic.

Rapper Nate Dogg Had No Friends, Some Say

Date: Friday – February 10, 2012



Nate Dogg’s world-famous rap friends turned their backs on the singer when he needed them most … refusing to pitch in one cent towards his medical costs … this according Nate’s former associate, who’s on the hook for the $300k bill.

TMZ broke the story … Nate’s estate AND a record label owner named David Michery … were sued by the medical facility where Nate lived from 2008 to 2010 after suffering a massive stroke. A judge recently ruled in favor of the facility, which means David needs to pay up … or else.

David tells TMZ … he DID vouch for the bill back in 2010 … but only because nobody else would step up to the plate … “none of Nate’s so-called rapper friends.”

David says medical personnel told him it was imperative that Nate receive treatment at the CareMeridian center at the time … because the singer’s life was hanging in the balance.

“I was the only person who would come forward because I didn’t want him to die. Me and Nate have 20 years history together and I did what everyone should have done and tried to save his life … not let him get kicked out in the streets and die.”

David says he intends to pay the costs by releasing several never-before-heard Nate Dogg tracks that he claims he owns.

When asked if he regrets taking responsibility for Nate’s massive medical bill … David says, “Not at all … I would do it again in a minute. I just wish that the people he looked out for all these years and the people who claim to love him so much would help out.”

TMZ spoke with Warren G — who famously recorded “Regulate” with Nate — who tells us, “I rode with Nate ’til the end … I did what I could do for him with other things financially.”

He added, “If I was able to pay for his hospital bill, I would have. I made several calls to numerous people for help. I love Nate … he’s my brother.”

We called several other rappers who were close with Nate — so far no response.
