Lil Wayne sells Florida mansion for almost half listed price


Rapper Lil Wayne has finally offloaded his Miami Beach mansion after accepting almost half the original selling price.

The Lollipop hitmaker first listed the Florida property for $18 million in April 2015, just a month after police officers descended upon the home after receiving a hoax call about four people being shot at the address.

It has taken him more than two years to offload the property but it has finally been sold for $10 million, nearly half the original asking price, according to the Miami Herald. He bought the home in 2011 for $11.6 million (£9 million).

The rapper’s home, which boasts nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms, rooftop skate park, recording studio, and a shark lagoon, has made the headlines on another occasion too. In November 2015, authorities raided his property to seize the star’s belongings, including expensive pieces from his art collection, after he allegedly racked up more than a million dollars in unpaid private jet fees.
