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.

There is this thing that human sometimes do and it's called LYING. Remember when Bill Clinton said "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." Well, turns out he lied. Same thing here.

There is also this thing called INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM. You know, where you actually investigate the story you are reporting and make sure that the facts are correct before reporting them.

I think when you get busted like that you should only be called by your real name and not your faked up "street" name.

Wouldn't have surprised me though if he did spend that much ( if he even had that much). Only a rapper would take all of his cash and blow it all at once on something like that. They tend to be impulse buyers, and then behind bars a year later for tax evasion. Not very stealthy, lol.

Let´s hope he really spends some money getting those tats removed from his neck. They´re not going to look very good when he grows another five chins and starts to get all saggy.

SOULJA BOY'S NETWORTH IS AROUND 1 MILLION. TMZ is incredibly reckless and stupid for believing he bought a $55 million jet. That doesn't even make sense.
