The home originally belonged to Russell Weiner, founder of Rockstar Energy Drinks, who sold the home to Birdman for $14.25 million in 2011.
Birdman took ownership of the home and dumped additional cash into renovations.
According to The Real Deal, Birdman’s simply got too much house on his hands.
“It’s too much home for him,” said Brett Harris, Birdman’s listing agent. “We’re actively pursuing other properties in South Florida for him now.”
According the The Real Deal’s listing, the house comes quite well-equipped, with seven bedrooms and twelve bathrooms. More impressively, it’s got a dock for a yacht, and its own movie theatre. No wonder Bird feels like he’s in need of a downgrade. Here’s the writeup from The Real Deal:
Records show the seven-bedroom, 12-bathroom house sits on a 0.7-acre lot. The property includes about 100 feet of water frontage with a dock for a 100-foot yacht, a volleyball court, movie theater, chef’s kitchen, two wine cellars, a pool, and a summer kitchen with a pizza oven, Harris said. Williams upgraded the master bedroom by combining three bedrooms on the top floor and it now spans about 3,500 square feet.
But wait, there’s more. The house also has a four-door garage and a two-door garage. Yes, you read that right. The mansion is also home the “million dollar mattress” that Birdman sleeps on, as well as the golden toilet we saw on Instagram.
Some speculate that the listing is related to legal trouble. Lil Wayne is currently suing Bird’s record label, so maybe it’s a money-saving move.
