Reactions to reports that Soulja Boy spent $55 million on a private jet for his own birthday ranged from head-scratching confusion to incredulity. However, a rep for the 21-year-old denies the report, according to aceshowbiz.com.
“The elaborate rumors circulating about Soulja Boy purchasing a jet for his 21st birthday are grossly over exaggerated,” said spokesman Greg Miller, who explained that the rumors “are not true.”
TMZ earlier reported that the raooer bought a G5 jet for $35 million, and spent an additional $20 million to trick it out with Italian leather seats, liquor bars, flat screen TVs, Brazilian hardwood cabinets, and other amenities.
The original report was further surprising upon reports by various outlets that the rapper owed over $26,000 in taxes to the IRS, which would put in the dubious company of R. Kelly, Swizz Beatz, and others.
