Lil Wayne’s home raided by police

Police have raided Lil Wayne’s Miami Beach mansion due to outstanding debts owed to a private jet company.

In September of this year, Lil Wayne and his label Young Money Entertainment lost a lawsuit after failing to make regular $55,000 (U.S.) payments on his private jet lease – he owed over $2 million in the suit, in addition to $200,000 in lawyer and court fees.

The Miami-based Signature Group, who leased Lil Wayne the private jet, even had the aircraft customised for his particular preferences, such as satellite phones, a custom bed, and medical equipment.

After Signature Group’s legal team was able to prove to a county judge that there were assets inside the waterfront house, the judge authorised the break in.

The rapper’s house, in which he was not residing at the time, was raided last Tuesday, with police seizing artwork from Weezy’s reported $30 million collection.

Lil Wayne used Twitter to comment on the raid, remaining thankful for his family in this time of inconvenience:

Lil Wayne’s previous troubles with the law include cancelling three shows after receiving an advance $100,000 payment for them, failing to pay a producer for his services, and a whole bunch of unpaid royalties cases.
