During Lil Uzi Vert’s performance at Rolling Loud, fans ripped the “Yessirskiii” rapper’s surgically implanted diamond from his forehead. OUCH!
“I had a show at Rolling Loud (festival), and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out,” the rapper told TMZ.
The pink, $24 million diamond was implanted in his face in early 2021.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot [Eliantte] for years now,” the rapper tweeted about his jeweler. “This one Stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017,” he continued. He closed the tweet by saying, “A lot of M’s in my face,” followed by a shush emoji and 24 money bag emojis.
Luckily, Uzi came out unharmed and with the diamond still in his possession. It’s unclear if the diamond has been placed back into its place on the rapper’s forehead. He’ll probably think twice before being up close and personal like that again with his fans.
