Offset Request Reversal Of $950,000 Stolen Bentley Default Judgement: ‘I didn’t steal the car.’
Offset was accused by Platinum Motorsports (PML) in Los Angeles of bailing on a 2020 Bentley Bentayga he allegedly rented and never returned in 2019. PML sued the Migos musician and demanded $950,027.35 in payment for the vehicle. The rapper eventually defaulted on the lawsuit. Unfortunately, the court ordered Offset to pay the huge sum.
Offset, according to Rolling Stone, filed a sworn statement in the court this week. He claimed that he never drove or owned the car in question. Additionally, he stated that the automobile was rented by Oriel Williams, the mother of one of his children. The rapper agreed to pay for the rental. However, he said Williams contacted him in July 2020 to inform him that the vehicle had mysteriously vanished. He claimed he called PML immediately and was told the problem was already solved.
Offset With His Insurance Company
Following the incident, Offset claimed he contacted his insurance company. Sadly, his insurer claimed he wasn’t protected for the purchase because he hadn’t signed any rental agreement.
He further stated that, “Not hearing otherwise from PML or the Los Angeles Police Department in 2020 or thereafter, I assumed that the Bentley — which was very unique and which I believed was protected with OnStar or some other electronic detection device — had either been recovered or that any loss had been covered by PML’s insurance.”
Offset On Platinum’s Lawsuit
The songwriter for “Red Room” also claimed that Platinum never served him with the lawsuit, instead sending it to an address in Atlanta where his father lived and where he’s “never” lived. He further claimed that he never authorized his father to open letters on his behalf.
Platinum’s complaint was found to be deceptive since it “never advised the court that he did not sign the rental agreement in question, and he is not identified as an authorized driver on the rental contract,” according to the Migos musician. In May, a hearing will be held on the subject.
