Lil Wayne Lists Mansion for $12.9 Million to Pay Taxes
Lil Wayne is looking for the fastest solution to his tax problem. The Young Money leader has re-listed his Miami mansion that he purchased last year for $14 million, selling it below market value at $12.9 million in an attempt to quick-fix the $5.6 million debt he owes the IRS.
The rapper, whose three-level home is situated in La Gorce Island, Fla., shelled out the big bucks to buy the sprawling abode, which covers 15,101 square feet. The nine-bedroom, nine-full bath residence is configured with glass, steel and marble, sporting a modern look. The baller bachelor pad touts a two-story master suite with its own glass elevator and two half-baths, while the living room features floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
Additionally, Weezy’s crib, built in 2004, also comes with a three-car garage, a three-bedroom guesthouse and a swimming pool.
The platinum rapper is putting the pricey real estate on the market following an outstanding tax lien from the IRS earlier this month. The government claims that he has a bill of $5,610,034.00 in unpaid income taxes from money earned between 2008 and 2009.
His tax troubles were thought to have come to an end after his latest debacle, with Uncle Sam asking him to pony up $1.13 million in Dade County, Fla., in November 2010.
