R&B singer Akon isn’t holding a grudge against alleged woman beater Chris Brown. Akon has gone on record as saying he would be happy to work with the teen pop star, putting personal issues and problems aside, according to the Associated Press. Brown was charged with two felonies in connection to allegedly beating his girlfriend, Rihanna, on February 8, and has lost several lucrative endorsements since then, an act Akon believes is unfair. Having gone through his own legal woes last year, Akon encouraged Brown to use this time to be creative and make new songs.—WLW
