Offset Loses $50,000 Betting on Atlanta Falcons at 2017 Super Bowl
Obviously, Offset was rooting for his hometown Atlanta Falcons in the 2017 Super Bowl. Unfortunately, Atlanta fell apart in the second half, and as a result, Offset lost $50,000 on a bet.
TMZ caught up with the Migos rapper while he was leaving NRG Stadium. During the brief interview (which you can watch below) Offset admits that he lost $50,000 on the game, and $10,000 of that money is going to Blac Youngsta. Fortunately for Offset, he says he made the $50,000 back during a show he had in Houston last night.
It must be nice to get paid $50,000 for one night of work. "Yeah, I got a show tonight for 150. Divided by three, what's that?" Offset tells TMZ reporters.
TMZ also asks Offset about Lady Gaga's halftime performance. Remember, there was an online petition trying to get Migos to replace Gaga, which, of course, didn't actually come to fruition. Offset says he wasn't too upset about being left out of the halftime fun.
"Nah I wasn't mad about that shit," he says. "[Gaga] did aight. I think the crowd would've gone crazy if we did it." Offset goes on to say he'd like to perform at the 2018 Super Bowl in Minnesota.
Prior to the big game, Migos told TMZ Sports that they'd be betting $300,000 on the Falcons, so it's likely Quavo and Takeoff also lost quite a chunk of change after Tom Brady's crazy comeback win.

This isn't the first time Offset has lost money betting on the Super Bowl. Last year, Migos lost $75,000 on the game.
