Inside Birdman’s New Orleans mansion he abandoned after Katrina

Rapper Bryan Williams, better known by his stage name Birdman, abandoned his sprawling Louisiana mansion shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.

And it seems he hasn’t returned since.

The 10,948 square foot property was damaged in the devastating storm, which killed more than 1,800 people.

Now the odd New Orleans home has been unoccupied and inactive for over 15 years.

The house is now worth around $ 650,000, according to Realtor, which is reasonable given the area is prone to flooding and natural disasters.

Built in 1990, the house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The house spans 10,948 square feet.

Features of the three-story structure include two hot tubs, a sauna, and a pool – which looks cloudy and unkempt.

Pools and hot tubs have accumulated mold over the years.

Before the founder of Cash Money Records bought the house in 2004, it was owned by NFL star Pat Swilling, who played linebacker for the New Orleans Saints in the 1990s.

In November, Birdman finally offloaded his Miami Beach mansion at a loss – for $ 10.9 million – following a series of foreclosure proceedings. He originally bought the Florida home in 2012 for $ 14.5 million from Rockstar Energy Drink founder Russell Weiner, according to property records.

Birdman and Toni Braxton, who have been on and off since 2016, reportedly tied the knot in February.

And Birdman isn’t the only celebrity to have abandoned a mansion. Rapper Nelly recently sold his abandoned St. Louis, Missouri pad for $ 600,000.
