Birdman Closed His Bank Accounts To Prevent Ex-Worker From Collecting $1 Million Debt
According to court documents obtained, Birdman shut down 7 accounts he held with Citibank on August 31, 2019, to prevent Ex worker from collecting $1million debt owed.
Citibank revealed the information in Birdman’s legal battle with his ex-employee, Nicolas Jose Penzo.
Last month, a Florida judge granted a default judgment against Birdman of $1,069,876. The money was awarded to Penzo, who is now trying to collect.
Penzo fired off subpoenas to Citibank demanding they seize all of Birdman’s money and hand it over.
In newly filed documents, Citibank claims to not have any of Birdman’s cash. They point to him closing several accounts in August. The docs state, “Citibank has no tangible or intangible personal property of the Defendants.”
Penzo will have to figure out a different strategy to collect on his $1 million.
Back in April 2018, Penzo sued Birdman, Cash Money Records and Pine View Management LLC.
In his lawsuit, Penzo claimed he worked as Birdman’s property manager from 2015 until May 27, 2017.
He said his duties included painting, handling the cleaning services, and coordinating with contractors to fix things such as the electricity.
Penzo said Birdman was to pay him $150 per day. He claimed to have been worked (sometimes) from 9 am to 9 pm. Penzo said he worked an average of 48-60 hours a week without being properly paid for all overtime hours worked.
