Maybe everyone predicting he would soon be bankrupt caused Souljah Boy to recant his story. Or maybe he came to his senses and made a massive return on his foolish purchase. One can only speculate.
Soulja Boy — along with several members of his inner circle — perpetuated a lie about purchasing a $55 million G5 jet … at least that’s what a spokesperson for Soulja is now saying.
Earlier this week, TMZ spoke with Soulja, a member of his management team named Shai Storm and Soulja’s assistant — who all verified Soulja dropped the cash on the private jet as a 21st birthday gift to himself.
In fact, Soulja even went on a radio show yesterday in Miami — after TMZ’s story posted — and when asked if he bought the plane, coyly told the DJ he was “G5 status” … but never said the story was false.
Now, Soulja’s “spokesperson” Greg Miller has issued a statement on behalf of the rapper … saying the “elaborate rumors” are “not true.”
Funny, because when our reporter spoke with Soulja earlier this week — and asked him directly, he responded, “Hell yeah … I bought it.”
Sadly, so did we.
Since Miller’s statement, TMZ has made dozens of calls to Shai Storm — but he hasn’t picked up. Storm did return a text message saying he was instructed that all media relations are now going through Miller.
They shoulda neva gave you brothas money………………
Soulja Boy doesn’t know the meaning of the word recession — because TMZ has learned, the 21-year-old rapper is dropping $55 MILLION on a new private jet.
A member of Soulja’s management team tells us … the kid bought himself a G5 jet as a birthday present to himself this week.
The jet cost $35 mil … but that’s just the beginning. We’re told the birthday boy is dropping an additional $20 million to pimp out his ride with all sorts of cool stuff … like 12 custom Italian leather seats, flat screen TVs, 4 liquor bars, a special travertine tiled floor, and Brazilian hardwood cabinets.
We’re told S.B. is also gutting the in-flight lavatory — and replacing it with a giant, LUXURIOUS bathroom. Oh, he’s also giving the jet a custom paint job … to include his logo.
And if that’s not enough for someone’s 21st — we’re told Soulja’s also spending $300,000 to throw himself a blowout birthday party at a Miami nightclub tonight … and Dwight Howard, Bow Wow, and Sean Kingston are all expected to attend.
I’m sorry, but this dude is doomed to be broke. If he’s that rumored druggie and his music keeps flopping all over the cot d*mn place, this dude is gonna end up broke, and wont even have those silly chains to show for it. Where is his momma? No shade or hate. Just my honest opinion.
