With barely any money in the bank, Miami rapper Flo Rida have been reportedly caught in a $170,000 real estate scam after paying a couple for a home he never got a chance to move into five years ago.
According to TMZ,
“According to new court docs — the rapper claims he forked over $170,000 to purchase a house in the Sunshine State … and the owners ran off with his money.
Flo claims he attempted to purchase the home from Florida couple Pierre and Marie Malette in 2009 … but the deal never closed. Flo claims he handed over the money as a down payment, but the Malettes never signed over the house … leaving Flo with no house and no money.”
Apparently, the rapper won’t be getting back a DIME from the $170K as the couple — shortly after — filed for bankruptcy.
“Sources close to Flo tell us he’s not as upset about the house — he wasn’t going to live there … it’s more about the dough. The Malettes have since filed for bankruptcy … and now Flo has filed a claim in their case, demanding his $170K.”
Flo seems to have a bad case of bad luck on his side.
