Offset Reportedly Owes Car Rental Company $950,000 Over Bentley

American rapper Kiari Kendrell Cephus, known professionally as Offset, reportedly owes car rental company $950,000 over Bentley.

Reports  indicate that, the migos rapper is being sued by Platinum Motorsports (or Platinum Transportation Group)—a luxury vehicle rental business in Los Angeles—over a Bentley he allegedly didn’t return. And, according to reports, it’s now costing him $950,027.35.

The rapper allegedly paid for a Bentley Bentayga to use for a video shoot from Platinum Transportation Group. The transaction occurred in the spring of 2020 at a rate of $600 per day, and while the agreement allowed Offset to keep the car for a few days, he repeatedly pushed back the return date.

 

Finally, he confessed that he could not return the Bentley because he did not have it and couldn’t remember who last had it or where it could be.

That confession resulted in a $100,000 lawsuit, which was filed in February, but it looks like the price tag has been raised. HotNewHipHop and The Blast report that the Bentley Bentayga, which remains missing, will now cost Offset $950,027.35 after he defaulted on the rental on November 3.

 

In May of 2020, when Offset was a regular customer, he reportedly rented a 2020 Bentley Bentayga for under $600 a day and agreed to hold onto the car until late July after an extension.

He then reportedly failed to submit his rental payments after the final rental date of July 25, and told them weeks before on July 4 that the vehicle was no longer in his care and he didn’t know where it was.

 

Offset then stopped making payments, despite the car allegedly being missing, according to initial reports. PTG then claims it filed a police report to find the missing Bentley, and estimates it lost $100,000 on the potential income that could’ve resulted from having the car back.

Offset has not commented on the vehicle situation, but just this week—a month after he surprised her with a home in the Dominican Republic for her birthday— Cardi B announced that the pair have landed on a new property in her native New York, adding to her portfolio of homes in Atlanta and Los Angeles.

Now having a home in NY, I can have get togethers with my family all the time,” Cardi shared. “I have accomplished so many things yet I still feel far from all the goals I want to accomplish. This is one dream I can cross off…..Let me know if ya’ll want a mini tour!”

 

Offset is a member of Migos, an American hip hop   trio from Lawrenceville  Georgia. The grip was founded in 2008. It’s composed of three rappers known by their stage names Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff. They are managed by Coach K, the former manager of Atlanta-based rappers Gucci Mane and Young Jeezy.
