Billionaire New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft celebrated his 80th birthday with close friends at his Hamptons mansion over the weekend.
Jay Z and Meek Mill, who reportedly received loans from their pal in the past, repaid their friend's loyalty by gifting him with a brand new Bentley.
Business mogul Michael Rubin, who owns a $50 million bungalow nearby, pitched in to pay for the luxury vehicle.
Hollywood mogul Ari Emanuel and his fiancee presented the octogenarian with a pedigree puppy.
After petting the puppy, Kraft was led out to his driveway where the blue Bentley was parked.
Kraft raised his hands over his head in surprise. Then he kissed Rubin on the cheek and embraced him. "How did you get it?" he asked Rubin.
"We have resources," Rubin responded.
Meek Mill posted a video of the special moment on his social media. He captioned the video, "Drop top bent for Kraft awwwwww lol hbd robert." Meek included 6 trophy emojis to represent the number of Super Bowls Kraft has won.
After the intimate party, Kraft spent a quiet evening with his 47-year-old girlfriend Dana Blumberg, an Ophthalmologist from New York.

Antonio Brown announced his retirement from the NFL in a series of tweets over the weekend. One of his tweets contained what some are calling a "veiled threat" to the league.
The troubled New England Patriots wide receiver came under fire recently after two women accused him of sexual misconduct.
The Patriots seemed willing to stand by their star wide receiver. But he was let go on Friday after he sent a group text to his latest accuser, calling her "broke" and urging a friend to investigate her background.
Brown, 31, announced his retirement from the game on Sunday.
"Will not be playing in the @NFL anymore these owners can cancel deals do whatever they want at anytime we will see if the @NFLPA hold them accountable sad they can just void guarantees anytime going on 40m 2 months will see if they pay up !," he wrote, referring to his $9 million bonus that he forfeited when he violated the terms of his contract.
In a tweet sent earlier this month, Brown appeared to send a threat to the league.
"The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth," he tweeted.
He quoted an African proverb that roughly translates to: "If you don't initiate your young men into the tribe, they will burn down the village."
Brown also called out Patriots owner Robert Kraft for his hypocrisy after he was caught with his pants down in a Florida massage parlor.
Brown tweeted, "different strokes different folks clearly."
Kraft was reportedly furious after he learned about Brown's texts to his accuser. Brown's dismissal from the team was ordered by Kraft.
After Brown was let go, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, tweeted that Brown "is healthy and is looking forward to his next opportunity in the NFL. He wants to play the game he loves and he hopes to play for another team soon."

But Kraft isn't the biggest name swept up in the sex trafficking bust.
