If there was any doubt that Birdman had money, his $5 million bet on the New England Patriots to win Super Bowl XLVI is far from “baby” money.
The #1 Stunna announced on Twitter that he was going to go with Tom Brady and The Patriots to beat the New York Giants in the rematch of Super Bowl XLII and avenge their only loss in a Super Bowl in the past decade.
Birdman, @BIRDMAN5STAR, tweeted, “I like New ENGLaNd.my nephew play RB# 42.I’m Bet 5million 2 any niggaaa.like tha Giants YMCMB.BabyMoney anybody kan Getit.”
Last year Birdman cleared $1 million on a bet that the Green Bay Packers would beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Super Bowl. He was rumored to have immediately spent his winnings on a Maybach 62S Landaulet, which would set you back around $2 million. With Maybach recently announcing that it will be closing, where will Birdman spend his winnings if he was to win this time around? That’s still to be seen.
The Super Bowl will take place on February 5th at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, and with tickets starting around $1,500, the Cash Money founder should be able to afford a seat to the year’s biggest sporting event. —Nicholas Sella
