"Life comes at you fast."
A video allegedly showed Lord Aleem’s luxury car rental firm being raided by police, with footage showing some of the vehicles being taken away.
The millionaire influencer is known for his lavish array of cars and also runs Platinum Executive Travel (PET) in Yardley, Birmingham.
However, Lord Aleem has supposedly landed in controversy when video footage showed police officers at his business.
Posted by London and UK Street News on X, the video features a white Rolls-Royce being driven out of the firm’s garage while a man signals it forward.
As the camera pans across, police officers are standing by the vehicle.
It then cuts to a Mercedes G-Wagen on a vehicle removal lorry while a police van can be seen parked outside PET.
The brief clip cuts to Lord Aleem purchasing a luxury boat and his tweet from November 9, 2023, that read:
“You got to believe it to achieve it.”
His tweet had been quote-tweeted and it read:
“A week later.
“Everything got seized by the feds.
“Life comes at you fast.”
The viral video has sparked speculation over the reason for the alleged police raid.

Some claimed it was due to unpaid taxes, with reports suggesting it is £1.7 million.
One tweet read: “Yesterday, officers from Birmingham’s Organised Crime team worked with @HMRCgovuk and @osu to execute a warrant at a Luxury Vehicle Hire company in Birmingham.
“This was to support the recovery of £1.7 million of unpaid taxes and associated penalties.”
Another user said: “Maybe if Platinum Executive Travel paid their taxes this wouldn’t have happened, but there are rumours it is not just down to tax but also investment from people on sanctions lists.”
Others alleged that it was due to selling drugs, an accusation that Lord Aleem has faced for numerous years.
Citing a past incident involving the millionaire’s father, a netizen said:
“Wasn’t it his dad who gave that young girl a heroin overdose years ago? Lucy Burchell I think her name was.”
Claims of money laundering and the business being “dodgy” are also circulating.
Lord Aleem has not issued an official statement on the video but an Instagram Story is seemingly about those speculating about the incident.
It read: “But people in a small town tend to do a lot of talking, even when they don’t know what they’re talking about.”
