If you’re nervous about cutting Uncle Sam a check this tax season, just remember it could be worse — you could be Lil Wayne. According to court records obtained by The Blast, Weezy recently coughed up $14 million to settle his tax debt.
The IRS filed releases of two separate federal tax liens against Wayne. Back in 2017, the liens ac-cused Wayne of failing to pay $7,341,399.07 in 2011 and $6,853,545.77 in 2012 … for a grand total of $14,194,944.84.
Lil Wayne might have dipped into the settlement money he received from Birdman last year when the two settled their years-long legal bat-tle over his record deal.
As The Blast first reported, Wayne received an eight-figure payout from Universal Music Group and officially cut ties with Birdman’s record label, Cash Money Records.
Weezy originally s-ued Cash Money to have his record deal voided.
He ac-cused the label of owing him tens of millions of dollars, including an $8 million advance for “Tha Carter V.”
As part of the deal, Wayne was free to release the infamous album through Universal. The post-Lil Wayne Pays Off Massive $14 Million Tax Bill appeared first on The Blast.
