Lil Wayne's Lawyer Issues Cease-and-Desist Over Alleged Sex Tape: Report

Last month, a Miami-Dade County judge denied a private jet company's request to have officers seize assets at the home. That followed a ruling that the rap star owed the jet leasing company Signature Group $2 million over missed payments. 

This raid is related, TMZ reports, and the court order permits Miami-Dade County Sheriff's deputies to break locks on the house if necessary in order to gain entry and confiscate property.

Billboard reached out to reps for Lil Wayne and the Miami-Dade County Police Department but had not heard back at time of publishing.
