Birdman Forced to Hand Over Miami Mansion

Birdman is being forced to give up his Miami mansion.

According to The Blast, the Cash Money head honcho is losing his house after welching on a loan. The gossip website reports that the financially troubled label head and rapper has to turn over his 7-bed, 11-bath home immediately.

The 20k sq. ft. house was put up as collateral for a loan he took out with a company called EMG Transfer Agent. The company fronted the Big Tymer $12 million, and they’re coming for the house now that he’s defaulted on the loan.

Birdman bought the house in 2012 for a cool $14.5 million and put it back on the market in June for $20 million, eventually dropping the price down to $16 million. It’s possible that the rapper was trying to get rid of the home before it was taken from him by the courts, but the agent representing the property offered another explanation.

“The rapper is looking to downsize,” Brett Harris told The Real Deal. “It’s too much home for him,” he said. “We’re actively pursuing other properties [in South Florida] for him now.”

According to The Blast, a court-appointed representative will take over the house and the house is not allowed to be sold until the legal case is over.
