Lil Wayne Owes A Ton Of Money To Uncle Sam … A Ton!

Published

Lil Wayne might love poppin’ bands, but the one thing he isn’t poppin’ is money to Uncle Sam.

According to a tax lien obtained by TMZ, the rapper failed to pay his taxes for the years 2011 and 2012. The lien states that Weezy owes nearly $5,843,952 for 2011 and a staggering $6,311,132 for 2012. And in case you aren’t the best with math, that is over $12 million.

This isn’t the first time Mr. Carter has had problems with the IRS. In 2008-2009, the 31-year-old owed a reported $7 million for back taxes, but cleared his debt in 2012.

Aside from the rapper’s legal problems, expect to hear new music from the New Orleans native soon. Weezy is expected to drop his forthcoming compilation, Young Money: Rise of an Empire on March 11.

Exclusive: Sorry, Folks, Diddy Did NOT Offer H&M Model A Contract

Last week rumors started circulating that Diddy had offered Liam Mango, the young model featured in the H&M ad a Sean John modeling contract. Unfortunately those reports, as sweet as they sound, aren’t true.

Diddy spoke to reporters backstage before a tapping of his new show The Four  and clarified what really happened.

“I didn’t actually offer a modeling contract to him I told my people to reach out to him so we could use him in the next shoot that we do,” he explained.  “But with that being said, I think that what we’re seeing is just a general insensitivity to how we feel you know. I think that H&M is going to feel the results of that.”

H&M has issued an official apology for featuring Mango on their website in a “Coolest Monkey In The Jungle” hoodie, saying in a statement : “We sincerely apologize for offending people with this image of a printed hooded top. The image has been removed from all online channels and the product will not be for sale in the United States. We believe in diversity and inclusion in all that we do and will be reviewing all our internal policies accordingly to avoid any future issues.”

After photos of the young boy hit the web, folks started speaking out against the retailer calling them racist and insensitive. But one person not feeling that way was Mango’s mother. She posted her thoughts Facebook questioning what all the fuss is about. “I really don’t understand but not coz am choosing not to but because it’s not my way of thinking, sorry.”

She and the boys father Terry Odhiambo have since had a change of heart appearing on ITV on Monday, saying they don’t think that there’s ever an “overreaction when it comes to racism”.

They also said they’ve had to move from their home in Sweden, and haven’t been able to live a normal life since the controversy started.
