Rapper Lil Wayne paid off a $3.4 million judgment against him, saving his Miami Beach mansion from seizure, GossipExtra reported, citing paperwork filed to Miami-Dade County.

Lil Wayne (Dwayne Michael Carter) can keep his $11.6 million mansion on La Gorce Island, one of the most expensive neighborhoods in Miami Beach, by responding to the judgment.

Back in November, a Los Angeles jury found that Lil Wayne had deprived producer Quincy Jones III of potential profits by blocking the release of a documentary about him.

By April, Lil Wayne still hadn’t paid up and Jones’ Miami lawyer David Goldstein indicated he would go after assets, including the La Gorce manse and several luxury cars.

The singer of “Lollipop” called the whole thing off by writing a check, the website reported. [Gossip Extra]Emily Schmall
