Lil Uzi Vert says unidentified fans have ripped the expensive diamond he embedded in his forehead at a recent music festival.
“I had a show at Rolling Loud (festival), and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out,” he told TMZ about his performance in July in Miami.
The American rapper however says he is not worried about the incident as he still has the diamond in its rightful place. The pink diamond is reportedly worth $24 million and was surgically implanted in the rapper’s face earlier this year.
In January, he tweeted about buying a pink diamond.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now,” he tweeted. “This one Stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017. That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond. A lot of M’s in my face.”
A barbell piercing is now where the diamond had been.
