Which just goes to show you: financial irresponsibility isn’t just for American rappers.
The very first pair of the Nike Air Mag — the Marty McFly shoe from “Back to the Future II” was auctioned off in L.A. last night … and the winning bidder dropped $37,500!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The auction — co-hosted by Joel McHale — went down at the Montalban Theater … and after an INTENSE stand-off between two shoe-a-holics … the winner was eventually crowned.
Along with the shoes, the winner also received a “plutonium case” where he can store his “McFly’s”
So … what kind of a person drops $37,500 on a pair of crazy “Back to the Future” shoes??? A 22-year-old British rapper named Tinie Tempah … that’s who.
TMZ spoke with Tinie’s rep … who told us the London native is a serious shoe collector … and he simply fell in love with the Marty McFly sneakers at the charity auction in L.A. last night.
We’re told Tinie — whose new song “Written In the Stars” has become a worldwide hit — is on his way to South Africa at the moment.
Hey: at least the money will go to a charity, right? SMH.
