Let it be known that Lil Wayne’s problems are definitely Rich People Problems. The rapper is having a pretty rough day as police are reportedly storming his Miami Beach mansion to seize property in connection with a dispute he has with private jet leasing company the Signature Group, according to TMZ.
The law enforcement officials arrivedto seize some “sizeable”assets from within the home because of Lil Wayne’s failure to paya $2 million judgment against him in his dispute with the company that came down in September. He’s also on the hook for $200,000 in legal fees for the company.The company initially sued Lil Wayne for failing to pay for two years of his three-year contract with them.

Sources say Lil Wayne’s security initially refused entry to the cops, which probably didn’t go over to well.The court order, obtained by TMZ, allows the Miami-Dade County Sheriff’s deputies to break the home’s locks if necessary, so we’re guessing security didn’t put up that much of a fight.

Lil Wayne himself isn’t there to see the fracas, though. The rapper, who spent Halloween putting on a show in Las Vegas, is currently in Los Angeles. In fact, according to paparazzi, he visited the Ace of Diamonds strip club Monday night. He might need a return visit to cheer him up after today.
