Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, may be a billionaire, but his friends managed to find him something he didn’t own for his 80th birthday present.
Hip Hop artist Meek Mill posted a video to Instagram Monday in which he gifted Kraft a custom baby blue Bentley convertible, courtesy of himself, Jay-Z and a handful of Kraft’s family members.
The video shows Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin surprising the billionaire with the car in Kraft’s $43 million Hamptons mansion.
Kraft seems surprised and exclaims, “Oh my god, how did you get it?”
Rubin replied that he and his co-conspirators had “resources,” noting that they knew Kraft had his eye on this particular model and was struggling to get his hands on one.
Billionaire Robert Kraft cried out in disbelief when Michael Rubin (left), co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, surprised the owner of the New England Patriots with a custom Bentley convertible for his 80th birthday.
The rare car was courtesy of Rubin as well as rappers Meek Mill and Jay Z. Mill posted the video of Kraft receiving the car on Instagram Monday.
While no official MRSP exists for this type of car, the base model of the Bentley Continental GT convertible costs more than $246,000, and with expensive custom options, the tag for such a vehicle can go up to nearly $300,000, according to Carbon dioxide.
The car came with a hand-drawn birthday card that read ‘Happy 80th Birthday Robert Kraft’ on the cover and inside, ‘except you look 40 and act 25.’
Mill and Kraft met in 2018, while the rapper was serving a prison sentence for violating his parole, and the duo joined Rubin and Jay-Z on the Reformed Alliance.

The Alliance’s mission is to “transform probation and parole by changing laws, systems and culture to create real pathways to work and well-being,” according to the group’s website.
Kraft, an industrial and real estate tycoon, is worth an estimated $6.9 billion, according to Forbes.
