Akon dumps local stripper

2010-06-13 10:01

US-based Senegalese superstar Akon has dumped his South African

stripper-flame and taken his wife to the World Cup.

The multitalented songwriter/composer and singer attended the

opening ceremony of the Fifa World Cup with his wife while his South African

lover sulked and cried herself to sleep.

City Press reveals today that things fell apart last week when

scorned Lucinda Lee, known as Logan at the posh The Grand strip club in Rivonia,

defied an order from her multimillionaire hit-maker lover not to travel to Cape


He was there enjoying a holiday with his wife.

Love-struck Logan went anyway and he booked her a hotel room for

the weekend. She claims that on the Friday night after she arrived, Akon came to

her room and they made wild love.

Then he vanished to be with his wife for the rest of the


“If he didn’t want me in Cape Town, why did he come to my room and

sleep with me?” asked the 28-year-old from Eldorado Park in Johannesburg. “But

no, Akon comes, gets into my bed and we have mad sex for like an hour.”

The two met at The Grand in Rivonia, where Logan dances, last July.

They hit it off from the word go, she says.

And then she dropped a bombshell. “From the first night we had sex

there was no condom.”

She believes this was a sign of commitment.

After their first encounter they kept contact via mobile texts and

emails which City Press has seen.

One of the mobile texts from Akon to Logan shows that he did not

want the stripper to fly to Cape Town because he was there with his wife.

He was surprised when Logan landed in Cape Town on Friday morning

and texted him to say she was at the airport.

Regardless of his unhappiness at her arrival, Akon sent her a text

at 10.01am which read: “Come to 15 on Orange Hotel. When you arrive, go to room

323 and Babs (his manager) will give you a key to a room. Text me when you

arrive. Call Babs if you need anything else babe.”

Logan says later that afternoon Akon came to her room. “He said

that me being there could cause him stress.”

After their sex session he left.

That was the last time Logan saw him.

A flood of SMSes revealed her

desperation and anguish as she sat waiting for some attention from her


On Sunday night she was escorted out of the hotel by hotel security

staff after making endless calls to him. “I thought that we had something

special but for him to treat me like this … it hurts,” said Logan.

Since the relationship started the couple have hooked up a number

of times – in September in Durban, October in Kenya and March in Durban, when

the star was in Africa.

She flew to Kenya when Akon was attending the MTV Mama Awards when,

Logan says, her lover was there with his wife.

Logan told us her story this week and on Tuesday afternoon Akon

sent her a message telling her never to contact him again.

Several attempts to get comment from Akon drew a blank this week.
