Lil Wayne Pays Off Massive $14 Million Tax Bill

By TheBlast Staff

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 accused 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 battle 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 sued Cash Money to have his record deal voided. He accused 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.
