MIAMI BEACH — Rapper Lil Wayne is making the purchase of his Miami Beach house more affordable.
For some people!
The singer of Lollipop and Believe Me has slashed his asking price to $16 million this week, Gossip Extra has learned exclusively.
That’s $2 million less than what he wanted last week, MLS records show.
The 15,000-square-foot crib has been on the market since April, and it’s the first reduction in price.
The main house on the gated property at 94 La Gorce Circle near the La Gorce Country Club has nine bedrooms and as many bathrooms, and there’s a guest house with three more bedrooms.
The modernist main house offers sweeping views on downtown Miami and Miami Beach from third-floor terraces.
Problem is: Even at $18 million, Weezy would end up owing the bank a few bucks since there are several liens on the property.
Now at $16 million, he could be out of pocket $8 million — at the very least!
First, there’s a giant Internal Revenue Service lien for unpaid 2012 income taxes, according to tax records. He owes, the paperwork shows, just shy of $12 MILLION.
And then, according to Miami-Dade County property records, a company that Wayne created to buy the house owes $9.9 million for two mortgages.
Finally, a judgment for unpaid private jet bills is due: That’s another $2 million.
By the way, the buzz in the local real estate world is that Lil Wayne decided to sell the mansion because of constant aggravations.
Earlier this year, Miami Beach Police SWAT members descended on the neighborhood to respond to a false report of shots fired at Weezy’s place.
Lil Wayne’s publicist has not responded to attempts to obtain comments about the sale.
