FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts – New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft celebrated his 80th birthday on Sunday. Some of his celebrity friends surprised him with an unexpected gift – a sparkling new Bentley.
Rapper Meek Mill posted a video on his Instagram account in which a stunned force receives the car. The co-owner of the Philadelphia 76ers, Michael Rubin, the chairman of Fanatics, contributed to the gift, as did Jay-Z among others.
All have worked together to create the Reform Alliance, which since its inception in 2019 has aimed to change probation and probation in the United States.
In the video posted on InstagramKraft put both hands on his head after seeing the car for the first time and said, “Oh my god!” He had apparently hoped to buy a Bentley but apparently couldn’t find the car he was looking for, which led to his surprise.
“How did you get it?” asked Kraft Rubin.
Kraft was then told that the car was delivered in a bunk from Florida.
Kraft’s connection with Mill is well documented. He met him through Rubin, visited the rapper in prison in 2018, and then spoke publicly on Mill’s behalf that his sentence was unfair and reflected a broken criminal justice system.
“That makes it clear to me that we have to do something with the reform of the criminal law,” said Kraft at the time. “Its kind of case, in a situation like this, is really bad. I know some of our players in the NFL have spoken about it and I’ve seen it firsthand. It’s just wrong. We have to find a way to do it correct.”
After the Patriots won Super Bowl LIII against the Los Angeles Rams, Kraft wore a thick gold chain that Mill gave him to the Victory Parade.
