The taxman has released liens it had on rapper Lil Wayne‘s Miami Beach house after the diminutive singer paid off back taxes for a total $7.72 million, Gossip Extra has learned.
Katching! The IRS, and we the people, thank you!
According to court filings, the tatted out chart-topping singer of Got Money and Lolli Pop became the target of not just one, but THREE liens for unpaid income levy.
Weezy, 30, owed $3,351,077.95 for 2008 and $2,258,956 and 4 cents for 2009, according to Miami-Dade County records.
The other liens listed money owed since 2002!
The IRS wisely waited for Lil Wayne to buy a place on La Gorce Island before coming down on him like a rapper’s posse.
Until Wayne plunked down $11.6 million for a 15,000-square-foot crib on La Gorce Circle last September, he was renting a place — and didn’t have the type of assets that the IRS loves to lien.
But the moment Wayne become a proud Miami Beach homeowner, the liens rained down on him!
Lil Wayne, meanwhile, isn’t the only local rapper with tax issues. Gossip Extra exclusively reported in September that Carol City’s Flo Rida was hit with a $1 million-back tax lien.
