Birdman is fighting to get back tons of his personal items — including platinum records and 70+ pairs of shoes — that were taken from his Miami mansion after he was sued for foreclosure.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Birdman says his personal property was placed in storage following the legal battle being commenced. The property was placed in storage by a court-ordered receiver while they repaired Birdman’s Florida home.
Birdman says the property includes old stereo engineering equipment, a pool table, over 70 pairs of shoes, one box of sweatpants, one box of baby pants and 14 sweaters.
He is also seeking the return of his music awards, including BET Award, MTV Award, and multiple BMI awards Birdman also wants the record plaques of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne handed back to him.
Birdman says the lender suing him is refusing to allow for him to get his property, despite his belief they have no rights to the contents of his former home.
The music mogul was sued last year by EMG Transfer Agent. They accused him of borrowing $12 million and putting his Miami home up as collateral.
EMG accused him of defaulting on the loan and sued him for $12 million plus interest.
The judge granted their motion and appointed a receiver in the court to take possession of Birdman’s home. The appointed person took the home from Birdman and handled the property, including all repairs and upkeep.
Birdman originally agreed to sell the home but recently has decided to counter-sue EMG, accusing them of providing him with a sham loan and demanding their lawsuit be thrown out.
Birdman is suing EMG Transfer Agent demanding “the return of all money or property given as earnest money or down payment” and for the termination of the loan along with the return of all finance charges and unspecified damages.
The 9-bedroom, 17-bath mansion — which was once owned by producer Scott Storch — has 25-foot ceilings and features a below ground pool, outdoor pool with cabana, a movie theater, gym, spa, an in-house massage room, 100 feet of waterfront and a private dock.
