SOULJA BOY -- ACCUSED OF $55 MILLION LIE ABOUT PRIVATE JET

TMZ

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.
