Lil Wayne’s house on La Gorce Island in Miami Beach is for sale -- that is what has been all over the internet today, on blog after blog. Is it true? No it’s not.
The latest rumor was started by an erroneous April 7th report by AOL Real Estate, stating that Lil Wayne put his La Gorce Island home up for sale due to tax problems.
Lil Wayne doesn’t own a house on Miami Beach, but it he reportedly rents a home on La Gorce Island. 94 La Gorce Circle is a 15,000 square feet home which was built in 2004, and except for the relatively small lot on which it is situated, could well be considered a Miami Beach mansion.

In actuality, the property has been on the market for sale for quite some time. It was listed for sale in 2006 for $13.9 million, and has been on the market for most of the time since then. In November 2010 the price was dropped to $12.9 million, where it stands today.

The 7 bedrooms brand new 2009 home has approximately 12,000 square feet of interior living area, and is situated on a 24,000 square feet lot, with 100 linear feet facing Biscayne Bay and beautiful La Gorce Island.

The property was listed in June 2008 for $15,000,000, and the asking price was raised to $18,000,000 in 2009 when the mansion was finished, but with no buyers, the price was once again reduced, and was listed for $14,970,000 when Chris Bosh purchased it.
