Money doesn’t grow on trees and he should know only too well after learning he owes over $1million in tax. But Flo Rida was flashing the cash without a care in the world on Saturday as he performed to a crowd at Y100’s Jingle Ball.
The rapper – whose real name is Tramar Dillard – graced the stage inside the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida sporting a gold medallion which perfectly matched his microphone.
The 32-year-old rapper performed with a wad of cash, thought to amount up to $500, in his hand and sprinkled it among the crowd of youngsters.
While the amount is probably only peanuts to a flashy musician such as Flo Rida, it certainly made him popular with the audience.
They seemed rather appreciative of the gesture and reached out for him as he floated amongst the crowd on the shoulders of a bodyguard.
Apparently he owes the IRS $1,040,777.45, reports Gossip Extra, and the federal agency has put a lien against his South Florida estate.
According to legal documents the IRS filed in Miami-Dade County Court on September 7, the rapper – whose real name is Tramar Dillard – hasn’t filed taxes since 2009, the year the Wild One bought his 2.3-acre property for $1.6 million.
He’s also in a legal tussle with ADT, the biggest home security company in the U.S., who wired up Flo’s mansion with a $58,000 security system.
However, Flo is claiming that he never authorized the work!
