According to TMZ, Helt has been living a good life. The 24-year-old, who recently got a studio apartment in Los Angeles, Calif. and is expecting a baby with his partner, is cashing in the VMA for money to raise the child.
As of Tuesday morning (Aug. 30, 2016), there were no bids yet; however, the “Buy It Now” option is going for $15,000. If he’s lucky, Helt could get quite a lot of money for the engraved trophy. It wouldn’t be the first time an MTV Moonman has been sold. Someone once paid $72,000 for U.S.A. for Africa’s “We Are the World” statuette.
If you’d like to place your own bid (LOL), check out his Ebay listing here.
