Conor McGregor in hot water over stunt with Lord Aleem VIP hire car

Conor McGregor InstagramInstagram prince Lord Aleem has threatened to withhold a deposit paid by martial arts king Conor McGregor for a rented Rolls-Royce. UFC hero McGregor rented the £240,000 Roller from Platinum Executive Travel for a visit to the Aintree Grand National and fun in Liverpool.

He landed himself in trouble by standing on the bonnet of the VIP motor and then posting the image on Instagram. A Platinum spokesperson was not amused and stated the firm was mulling legal action over the stunt.

He added that the car could have been damaged and that McGregor would never be hiring from Platinum again because what he had done was disrespectful. The spokesperson did not reveal how much deposit the fighter had paid for the Roller rental or the daily rates.

Platinum co-founder Lord Aleem was equally as irate and responded to the offending images with his own Instagram posts. One of the images showed Aleem standing on two of the company’s exclusive hire cars.

Lord Aleem explained that he was allowed to stand on the cars because he owned them. Aleem carried on with the warning that McGregor was standing on the Rolls Royce as if he owned it, but as he didn’t he was likely to be losing the deposit he had paid up front.

Platinum also says it will be investigating the actions of the car’s chauffeur. The company is based in Birmingham and run by Lord Aleem and his father. In addition to the Rolls-Royce Wraith, the firm has an interesting fleet of muscle cars and VIP limos which includes the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder and the Rolls-Royce Ghost.
