Flo Rida’s head must be spinning round round after the rapper/singer was caught in a real estate scam.

Flo reportedly handed over a down payment of $170K to a Florida couple, Pierre and Marie Malette, back in 2009 for their house in the sunshine state just to find that the pair allegedly jacked the money and never signed the property over to him, according to TMZ.

Sources told the gossip site that the “Can’t Believe It” rapper wasn’t upset over lost property (he wasn’t actually going to live in the domain anyway), but the loss of funds hit a nerve. Since the scam, the Malettes have filed for bankruptcy and Flo has filed a claim, demanding his dough back.
