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.
