'Gunshot (Fiesta Riddim)' hitmaker Akon's been talking about that time when Lady Gaga was signed to his Kon Live record label and how they 'parted ways' because Akon knew her success was dwindling.
Talking to US DJ Sway (as quoted here), Akon was asked whether he has anything to do with the 'Marry The Night' hitmaker anymore, to which he replied:
“Actually I cashed out. I got out while the gooding was hot. It’s like a business, you build it to sell it," he mused.
"When I got it to the peak of where I felt it couldn’t go nowhere, and there was nowhere left to go but down, I cashed out, in other words I sold my share and got out before it was too late.”
When one of the other DJs mentioned that sales of 'ARTPOP' aren't exactly amazing, Akon added:
"That's why I got out".
What a guy.
