If Lil Wayne continues discounting his Miami Beach house, he might as well give it away.
Home sale records show the diminutive rapper lowered the price of the mansion at 94 LaGroce Circle by another $2 million this month. It’ll now cost $14 million to live like a music star.
The 15,000-square-foot house, with nine bedrooms and 120 feet of Biscayne Bay frontage, started the year with an $18 million price tag.
What’s going on here? “The market is flat,” said Ty Forkner, the listing agent. “Priced at under $1,000 a square foot, it’s a special deal.”
Never miss a local story.
The singer of How To Love and Down first listed the crib a year ago after several incidents, including a SWAT team raid on a report of shots fired. Records show Wayne bought it in 2011 for $11.6 million but spent several million redoing most of the inside.
A Miami Dade College part-time instructor who happens to be a medical doctor is suing the college in federal court because, he claims, promotions and full-time jobs go mostly to Hispanics.
In his complaint, Dr. Robert Sarhan describes himself as a “white Middle Eastern male” who’s been passed over for promotions in favor of what he calls “less qualified” Hispanics. Sarhan says he makes below poverty level as an adjunct professor of medical classes and blames the college for the fact he’s had to work all kinds of jobs to make ends meet.
What kind of jobs? The complaint says he works security at Club E11EVEN in downtown Miami.
While on that gig Sarhan, who wrote the complaint himself but asks the judge for representation from a tax-funded attorney, said he was severely injured when he was head-butted by a patron who happened to be an MMA fighter.
“The plaintiff has suffered irreparable damage due to not being hired to full-time faculty,” Sarhan wrote.
Said Hessy Fernandez, a college spokeswoman: “We don’t comment on personnel matters.”
