Rachel Ritfeld, a model, was supposedly Akon's former finance and almost 4th wife, speaks withe UK paper "The Voice". In the article she had quite a bit to say about him.
On how she had a change of heart about marrying Akon:
"The reality check really came when Akon told me he had his fifth child with one of his wives. For the first few months I got completely freaked out because even though I knew he had other wives, I never really thought about him being with them because his main attention was always on me - or so I thought."
On How the situation was presented to her:
"There was never any friction. Akon was honest with me about his mutiple wives from the start, which never got in the way of our relationship because his wives live in various parts of the world, so I thought why fix it if it's not broken? But now I have a had a complete change of heart."'
What she wanted most from Akon:
"The one thing I wanted from Akon was for him to be monogamous to me but he could not grant me my wish," said Rachel.
Listen, I heard when Akon justified polygamy to Angie Martinez, by saying that there were more women, in proportion to men on earth. That men would be unfair, if they only had one wife.
When Rachel was asked what type of man she wanted now, she said:
"I want a man who thinks that I'm God's gift to creation and I can think the same of him"
Amen Sista, that's every women's dream.
