Soulja Boy "Jet" Purchase

REP CALLS BS

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.

duh, no chance in hell this guy can afford a brand new G5. you'd need a networth of 500 million. perhaps a few hundred million less if you contained your lifestyle, but anyone who buys a brand new G5 doesnt contain their lifestyle, so 1/2 billion min.

Loved your comment on TMZ live. When he files for Ch.7, he could park his G-5 in a trailer park and remove the wheels. Or it would make for a really nice Air Stream trailer conversion.

This foo deserves to be shoved off a curb into i-94 traffic. Dude is racist a hell and I know his dumb ass would never have 55 mill to blow on anything. Rapper Game says he got 12 mill in the bank and he's sold a few more million albums than soulja toy....
