Lil Uzi Vert says the $24 million pink diamond embedded in his forhead was ripped out at Rolling Loud Festival.
As you remember, he said saved for years for the rare pink gemstone and had it put in his forehead for fear he would lose it.
But the implant wasn’t foolproof when he did a stage dive at the Miami hip hop festival … and his fans ripped it right out of his forehead.
He says he didn’t suffer any serious facial damage and put a barbell piercing in its place.
And the diamond? Yes, he still has it.
Uzi posted a message about the implant in February, posting a photo of blood seeping around the diamond and claiming he might die if it wasn’t removed.
He actually had it removed this summer, but had it re-implanted for Rolling Loud –just in time for it to be ripped out.
It’s obviously good for publicity, but maybe this wasn’t his best idea…?
