Last week Soulja Boy had the Internet going hammer when it was reported that he bought himself a $55 million private jet for his 21st birthday last week. However it was all a lie, according to TMZ, who happened to break the news in the first place.
The “Crank That” rapper’s spokesperson Greg Miller said that “elaborate rumors” are “false.”
To make matters worse, when given a chance by a Miami DJ to clear up the story on Friday (July 29), Soulja said he was “G5 status,” leading fans to believe he in fact made the astronomical purchase. He also told TMZ, “Hell yea… I bought it”
In related Soulja news, according to radaronline.com, SB is facing problems with Uncle Sam. The gossip site is reporting that the 21-year-old owes the state of California about $26,805 in back taxes, as well as about $3,500 to Mississippi. His Georgia home was also foreclosed on last year.
In more positive news, Soulja dropped his latest EP earlier today, appropriately titled 21, which fans can download for free here. –Mike Hennix
