He told Britain's Nuts magazine said: "Oh, yeah, that happens all the time, man! Alicia Keys, Beyonce - I'm pretty lucky in that respect, but I guess it comes with the circles you find yourself in when you get success." Akon, who claims he has three wives, insists Beyonce's boyfriend Jay-Z shouldn't be jealous because their liaison happened so long ago.
He said: "Nah, he's got plenty of other things to be concentrating on! The man has his own basketball team. I doubt he's going to be worrying about stuff in the past like that! And he sells records too, you know. " Akon, who was born in Missouri to Senegalese parents, says British women are the most beautiful in the world. He added: "Britain has some beautiful women - some of the most beautiful in the world. Every time I'm here, I'm amazed by them."
