He's used to red carpets and VIP service.
But, as Lil Wayne is learning, celebrities get no special treatment from the U.S. government.
The chart-topping rapper just handed over $7.72million in back taxes after the U.S. Internal Revenue Service threatened to seize his $11million Miami mansion.
The Grammy winner, real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, owed a reported $3.35 million in taxes for 2008 and $2.25 million for 2009, plus other unpaid taxes and late fees dating back in 2002.
As time dragged on, the IRS placed liens on Wayne's sprawling 15,501 square foot home in an attempt to collect on the debt.
The three story, waterfront mansion is made of glass, steel and marble and boasts a three-level guesthouse.
