Soulja Boy "Jet" Purchase

REP CALLS BS

7/30/2011 7:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

He CANNOT afford a private jet, he's no where in the same money making caliber as Diddy or Jay-Z. Baller on a budget.

I DONT LIE    

I was wandering about this because last time I checked he was not on 50 j or diddy's level financially. and when i checked and saw he was only worth about 6 million I laughed. like are you serious. Because you have to have some serious money to lay down on something like that. Hell Oprah dropped around that amount on her new jet a few years back so there you have it

File that lawsuit, I am Lindsay Lohan!    

No one but TMZ believed this anyways. But I think since Radaronline published a story of him owing to the IRS they (TMZ) followed with a sort of a retraction a la TMZ.

Photo is o*****-IV - not made since 2004. G-V (not G5) also out of production for many years now - used price well south of $28 million. Replaced with the G-550. Yeah, about $50 mil plus. No such thing as a G6. (Nissan?) G-650 in flight test. First deliveries in 2012. Sign up today, make a multi-million dollar deposit, take delivery in 4 years or so. I call complete BS on the whole story. Spent multiples of your net worth and don't even know what you bought?

Nobody believed this story apart from you guys at TMZ. As soon as the majority saw the GIANT HEADLINE, we all knew it was BS. Who wrote the story the druggy looking hippy..... enough said.
