A rental company is suing Offset for allegedly failing to return their Bentley Bentayga. The US rapper is being sued by Platinum Transportation Group (PTG) after he told the company he had no clue where the luxurious vehicle was.
Offset, who is married to superstar Cardi B, reportedly took the car in May 2020 with a promise of paying $600 (R8 800) per day for it. The company has reportedly claimed that the lease they had with the superstar was supposed to last for a few days but he allegedly kept requesting extensions to his rental period.
Complex reports that the Migos member informed PTG on 4 July that he couldn't recall who used the car last. He continued paying for it until their deal expired on 25 July, the publication reports.
TMZ reports that according to court papers in their possession, Offset stopped sending money on 25 July even though their car was nowhere to be found. PTG now wants Offset to pay them financial damages. They argued that the absence of the luxurious vehicle has resulted in more than $100 000 ( R1 488 870) in missed revenue.
US rappers are popular for driving fleshy cars and wearing expensive clothes and jewellery. They live in huge mansions and even brag about their extra ordinary lifestyle in their songs. Social media users have shared mixed reactions to the news of the missing new car. Check out some of their comments below:
"They don't have a tracking device on that car?"
"He hired people to take it off."
"Ok, y’all in here saying he broke but we all know y’all ain’t even close to the money he touching."
"Broke a*s rappers, tryna look cool when their capacity is only rental."
"The regular Joe would be arrested for car theft. LOL."
"You can take the man out the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out the man."
In other music news, Briefly.co.za reported that Lil Uzi Vert has probably the most expensive forehead with his new 11-carat diamond piece. The words "more money more problems" seem not to apply to every rich person and actually, one can have too much money that they do not really know how best to spend.
Rapper Lil Uzi Vert has shown that you can instead decide to take that money and put it on your forehead as a show of how much he has sitting around. This comes after the rapper implanted a $24 million (R359 million) natural pink diamond on his forehead and now probably has the most expensive head in the world.
Uzi had, in January 2021, told fans that he had finally cleared payment on a diamond from Elliot Eliantte which took him since 2017 to do so. He said it was the first time he had seen a natural pink diamond and it was almost 11 carats with each going for $2 million.
The rapper has been sharing videos while in the studio flaunting his new piece of jewellery which he noted was yet to fully heal.
