flag-exclusiveWe know rapper Lil Wayne is prone to seizures, as in collapse and near-death experience.

Now, he may be looking at a different kind of seizure.

A lawyer is gearing up to confiscate some of the entertainer’s assets in South Florida, including his prized cars and fancy waterfront home in Miami Beach.

Lil Wayne and his production company, Young Money, were socked with a $2.2 million judgment in November in California after losing a lawsuit over a contract.

Last month, the same court awarded the plaintiff’s lawyer, Miami’s David Goldstein, a whopping $1.2 million in legal fees.

In all, Weezy and Young Money owe $3.4 million — and have yet to pay up.

So, according to Miami-Dade County records, Goldstein is moving to have the Cali judgment domesticated to Florida so that he can start going after the singer’s stuff.

Goldstein declined comment, but a source close to the case told Gossip Extra: “They can execute the judgment whenever they want. Technically, those who lost the case need to write a check the day of the verdict.”

Goldstein is said to be eyeing the $11.6 million house that the 30-year-old singer of Lollipop owns on the exclusive La Gorce Island. He claims no homestead exemption, which can make the house a target for creditors.

The rapper also owns an impressive collection of cars, some of which are parked on La Gorce. Especially juicy for Goldstein: The little guy’s $2 million-black Bugatti Veyron.

Back in November, a jury in Los Angeles found that Lil Wayne had screwed producer Quincy Jones III out of potential profits by blocking the release of a documentary about him. Goldstein represented Jones’ company, QD3 Entertainment.

    Mimi-Dade County? Mimi Beach, Florida? You’ve got be kidding. Big signature, zero proof-read skills.

      Pauly, baby, complain to the Mimi-Dade County Clerk of Courts! They’re the ones who made it on the official document, not me! I just copied the document and I can’t correct it for them! Your tax dollars at work! Thanks for the big signature part!

  2. can they do this says

    Jose, if this house is homesteaded, they can’t take it, can they? Goldstein may want to have the jurisdiction changed to Florida, but that doesn’t mean he gets to grab the house.

    And nice come back to Paul – that’s why I can’t stop reading your website!! xoxo

      Excellent point, Mondago. I’ll add to the story. Lil Wayne’s is actually not homesteaded. So, the lawyers can have at it.

  3. Paul Church says

    Fyi, my comments were directed towards the “big signature” lawyer who failed to proofread the Affidavit before signing. The mistake is on the lawyer not the clerk who-generally speaking-records whatever is presented to them typos and all. Great site. Keep up the good work, baby. :)

  4. That's my opinion says

    Lil Wayne should change his name to Big Fugly.
    He’s this ugliest critter on the WorldWideWeb !
