Akon claims not to know his own age

ATLANTA - Even though Akon has a birth certificate, he says his age is still a mystery - and he'd rather keep it that way.

'All it's going to do is depress me,' he said. 'I don't want to know I'm getting older. Then I'll start to think about getting checkups and insurance. I don't want that.'

Numerous reports have put his age between 25 to 35 years old. In 2006, he gave his age as 25. But now, he claims his birth certificate shows he was born on April 16, 1977, which would make him 31.

Falk's wife, daughter spar over his care

LOS ANGELES - Peter Falk's wife of 32 years is opposing a bid by the Emmy-winning actor's adopted daughter to place him under conservatorship.

Documents filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court state that Falk entrusted his wife, Shera Danese Falk, to manage his affairs and care before his health deteriorated.

Catherine Falk applied to be named conservator over her father's affairs in December, stating her father was suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

The former 'Columbo' star's wife contends that Falk is receiving adequate care and does not have a close relationship with his daughter.
