‘Migos’ star Offset is on the hook for almost a million dollars after he failed to respond to a lawsuit over a missing Bentley he allegedly rented.
According to new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Platinum Motorsports — a luxury car rental service in Los Angeles — filed a default against the rapper after he failed to return a luxury Bentley allegedly rented in Spring of 2020. In the filing, a judge signed off on the award totaling $950,027.35.
It’s unclear why Cardi B’s husband allowed the case to go into default, but normally it means the person didn’t respond or challenge the lawsuit in court.
Offset Accused Of Failing To Return A Rental Car
As we reported, Offset was sued by Platinum who claimed there was a shady disappearance of one of their new Bentleys, which they claim somehow went missing when it was time for the rapper to turn it in. According to the lawsuit, Platinum says they agreed to rent Offset a new Bentley Bentayga for a couple of days back in May 2020, for less than $600 a day. The company claims he was a repeat customer.
At the time, the company claims the initial rental period passed and the rapper asked to keep the vehicle until late July. So, they negotiated a new deal, and Offset held on to the Bentley.
According to the initial lawsuit, the problem is that sometime after the 4th of July Offset stopped making the payments on the car, and failed to return it. Platinum claims the ‘Migos’ star told them he didn’t have the care anymore and didn’t know who had the car last. Apparently, the care vanished and Offset had no rational explanation for the disappearance — or at least that is what he was saying to them.
Rental Company Claims It Filed A Police Report Against Rapper Offset
Platinum says it filed a police report for the stolen vehicle, and it’s unclear if the cops were able to track down any leads. The company sued to claim they not only are out of a car but lost over $100,000 in missed revenue, due to the fact that they could not rent it anymore.
If you are confused by the story, so is everyone else. Obviously, Offset has plenty of money and a fleet of his own cars. So, where is this one?!
Cardi B and Offset’s wealth made huge headlines in the past few weeks after it was reported he bought her a HOUSE for her birthday. According to multiple reports, Offset purchased a $1.49 million investment property for his wife in the Dominican Republic. The exact purchase price is unknown — it was listed at 1.49 million — but, the house comes stacked with seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
