Lil Wayne Pays $7 Million to Cover Tax Liens on His Miami House
Lil Wayne has no worries when it comes to his tax debts. The Young Money honcho finally paid the taxman a whopping $7.72 million he owed in back taxes. That’s a lot of moolah, baby!
According to Gossip Extra, Weezy was on the IRS’s radar after he was delinquent on three liens for unpaid income levy. The ‘How to Love’ rapper owed $3.3 million for 2008 and $2.2 million for 2009, according to Miami-Dade County records.
The taxman pounced on Wayne after he copped a $11.6 million mansion on La Corce Island in Miami. Hey, there’s a reason why he’s on the Cash Money record label.
But Wayne’s financial struggles are far from over. Recently, a judge ordered him to pay $2.2 million to producer Quincy Jones III after he failed to appear in his own copyright-infringement case. And let’s not go into his other legal battles with producers who are suing him for unpaid royalties.
Lil Wayne will clock more moolah next year, however, when he releases his new album ‘I Am Not a Human Being II’ on Feb. 19 and embark on a major tour. “I’m gonna tour right after the album drops and I’m gonna tour all year round worldwide,” he says.
