Akon’s lockup came after the singer was charged with possession of child pornography and sexual abuse of a child in 2015.
In August, he was sentenced to two years in prison for child pornography charges.
In October, he pled guilty to sexually abusing two young girls.
His lawyer says the singer had been “in a state of deep depression and panic” after the attack.
“Akon has been under tremendous stress since the sexual assault incident,” his lawyer, Yehuda Galon, told the Post.
“He has been in a state in deep depression, and his mental state has deteriorated.”
The singer also has a child.
His wife, Nour, told The Associated Press that Akon had been diagnosed with schizophrenia.
“I am concerned for Akon and his family and am sure that his mental health is not good, but we do know that he is mentally stable,” Galon said.
“We do not know why he has locked himself up, but he is in a very deep depression.”
The court hearing has drawn national attention.
“The fact that an entertainer, who has so many fans, would lock himself up like this, it is a disgrace,” CNN anchor Brian Stelter tweeted.
“Why does the government have to lock up a rock star?”
The singer’s lawyer said the singer has been “medicated” and that Akons daughter was treated for bipolar disorder.
“What was most disturbing was that Akona has a young child, and he’s been under a lot of stress,” Galor told the AP.
“When he was in prison, he said he was depressed and suicidal.
We are very concerned that he has not regained his mental stability.”
The case has raised the ire of celebrities including Rihanna, whose husband, Kanye West, has also been accused of abusing girls.
“People who believe that music is for kids need to start respecting the rights of those who are young and innocent,” Rihanna tweeted.
