According to TMZ Birdman didn’t pay his taxes!
Reportedly in December of last year and then in February of this year he was threatened by the government to pay a total of $1,942,400.58 in back taxes.
Birdman wasn’t having any of it and ultimately refused to pay the government anything. Then the IRS gave him an ultimatum to either pay up or take away all of his estates, and belongings.
Unfortunately that forced the Cash Money CEO into a corner requiring him to give in and pay them.
The Cash Money Empire that Birdman and Lil Wayne helped so much to build seems to be falling apart before our eyes. Lil’ Wayne is claiming that not only does Birdman owe him millions of dollars but he also agreed to paying Wayne upfront once Tha Carter V was finished. Birdman reportedly has been refusing to release Wayne’s long anticipated album, after the beef that has surfaced between him and his beloved “son.” Other artists that were on the Cash Money Records such as Bow Wow and DJ Khaled have also parted ways with the company.
