Lil Uzi Vert gets $24m diamond implanted in his forehead
Here's what happened with Lil Uzi's forehead diamond.
In February 2021, to fans surprise, Uzi posted himself on social media sporting his latest accessory - a diamond that was inserted into the centre of his forehead using a metal bar.
The shock continued when the rapper said that The pink diamond is between 10 and 11 carats, costing a huge $24 million.
However, it has now been reported that the jewel in the rapper's head was "ripped out" by fans. The incident is said to have occurred when he dived into a crowd during his performance at Rolling Loud Miami.
The 'XO Tour lif3' hitmaker confirmed that he still has possession of the diamond and plans to get it re-implanted into his head. He currently has a piercing in replacement of the gem.
Fans have made hilarious memes about the incident - even comparing him to Marvel character 'Vision'.
Another fan posted that they were puzzled at how Uzi afforded the gem, saying: "Still tryna figure out how his net worth $16 million but he bought a $24 million dollar diamond".
Another fan simply asked: "Who's surprised".
