Birdman Is Broke: Foreclosure Continues on His $12 Million Mansion + Judge Orders $1 Million Payment to Ex-Employee

The rap industry has seen its fair share of ups and downs, and Birdman, the co-founder of Cash Money Records, is no stranger to controversy. This week, he has been in the headlines again for all the wrong reasons.

First, a court official accused him of absconding expensive bicycles from his recently foreclosed mansion. The property was foreclosed on when Birdman defaulted on a $12 million loan. The court-appointed official took inventory of the property and found four collector bikes manufactured by Gucci. The bikes subsequently disappeared, and the official suspects that Birdman took them. Now, the official is asking a judge to get them back.

Birdman’s lawyer claims that the rapper gave him the bikes as payment for legal services. However, the court official disputes this claim and points to a recent Instagram post made by Birdman that shows the bicycles in question, along with the caption:


This has only added fuel to the fire and led to further suspicions against Birdman.

If that wasn’t enough, Birdman has also been hit with a default judgment by a Florida judge for over $1 million. The judgment is in favor of one of his former employees, Nicolas Jose Penzo, who worked as Birdman’s property manager for two years, performing various maintenance and other services for an agreed-upon rate of $150 per day.

Penzo sued Birdman for a little less than $9,000 in wages and an additional $15,000 in damages after Birdman failed to pay him properly for his services. However, things took a turn for the worse when Birdman failed to show up to court proceedings, despite being served with court papers. In response, Penzo demanded a default judgment and claimed compensatory damages in the amount of $1 million because of all he has suffered “financially, physically, and emotionally.” Surprisingly, the judge agreed to his request.

These recent events have not been great for Birdman’s reputation. The rap mogul has been in the industry for decades and was once a respected figure in the hip-hop community. However, his recent legal troubles have brought his character and business practices into question.

Birdman can at least take some solace in knowing that things probably can’t get much worse for him in the upcoming week. Or at least he can hope it doesn’t. The rapper has faced legal challenges in the past, and it remains to be seen how he will handle these recent developments.

In the meantime, the hip-hop community is watching these events unfold with interest. Rap fans are no stranger to drama and controversy, and Birdman’s recent troubles have only added to the intrigue surrounding the industry.

Some fans have taken to social media to express their disappointment in Birdman, while others have come to his defense. However, the general consensus seems to be that the rapper needs to take responsibility for his actions and make things right with his former employees and business associates.

It’s unclear what the future holds for Birdman, but one thing is certain: he will need to work hard to regain the trust and respect of his fans and peers in the hip-hop community. Whether he can do this remains to be seen, but for now, the rapper can only hope that things start to look up for him soon.

    Bankruptcy for celebrities and the wealthy means very little except they get to dissolve outstanding loans. Birdman will continue to be a millionaire just like Kanye, 50, Hammer, and many many others.
