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.

of course its a lie. i doubt he has made half that much money. his ego is bigger than his wallet. in ten years he will be broke and he'll wish he hadn't spent all his money on womans jewelry.

I wouldn't be surprised if Soulja Boy actually owes money at this point, owe for failed videos, and flopped singles of recent. On the other hand, if he is still trying to become 50 Cent's protege then uncle 50 could've bought that jet for him.

Where's the love for TMZ? I remember watching the story and I believe TMZ was only reporting what this joker was running around telling everyone. I recall the TMZ folks questioning the validity of the story when it aired....

This guy has not made enough money in show business to buy a $55 millon plane, he is not Opr.ah or To.m Crui.se or Ji.m Carr.ey , This SoulJa Guy can only afford to fly in a private plane maybe 1 day a year as a rental...
