TMZ reports that Akon is being sued after he jumped off a stage and landed on someone, causing him permanent injury.

Matthew Graham is suing, claiming he was working at Akon’s concert at the Bayfest music festival in Alabama in 2009. Akon “negligently or wantonly leapt into the overcrowded mass of concertgoers” and struck him. You can see it happen in the video below.

Graham says he had severe and permanent injury to his knee, back, head and body and is now physically disabled. He didn’t reveal how bad the disability was. He is suing for medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain and mental anguish. He wants unspecified damages and is also suing BayFest, Inc.
