Rapper Lil Wayne has saved his Florida beach house from foreclosure after clearing $7.72 million (£4.83 million) in unpaid taxes.

The Lollipop hitmaker, real name Dwayne Carter, was hit with a total of three liens from the Internal Revenue Service (Irs) after failing to keep up with tax payments.

He faced losing his $11.6 million (£7.25 million) Miami Beach home on La Gorce Island in the financial mess, but recently managed to settle bills dating back to 2008 and 2009 to release the liens, reports GossipExtra.com.

Wayne is no stranger to tax troubles - he also had to settle a $5.6 million (£3.5 million) claim for income taxes last year (11).
