Rapper Lil Uzi Vert has got a pink diamond worth $24 million embedded on his forehead.
A rapper got a diamond worth $24 million pierced onto his forehead. Rapper Lil Uzi Vert said that he had been paying for the diamond since 2017.
He posted photos and videos of himself flaunting the giant pink diamond on his forehead on social media. “Beauty is pain,” he captioned a video on Instagram.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now. 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,” he tweeted on January 30.
Lil Uzi said that the precious stone was a whopping 10-11 karat and it cost more than “all my cars together, plus home”.
When a fan asked why didn’t he turn the diamond into a ring, he replied, “If I lose the ring yeah U will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead.”
Many fans compared his new forehead piercing to popular Marvel character Vision, whose body operates from the infinity stone that’s embedded in the middle of his forehead.
The Natural Diamond Council’s Head of Marketing & Comms, Lisa Levinson, told Daily Mail Online, “This is certainly one of the most eccentric ways to wear a diamond, it’s inspired! It’s not surprising that he chose a pink diamond. They are the rarest, most precious and coveted of all diamonds.”
She added, “Pink diamonds as big as the one we see on Lil Uzi Vert’s head are so rare they are terribly hard to find, usually they are sold through ultra-high-end auction houses or dealers. Large pink diamonds could be the most valuable items in the smallest volume in the world.”
It is unknown who performed the piercing for the rapper.
However, The American Rapper Lil Uzi Vert has said that fans ripped off the pink diamond worth $24 million he got embedded on his forehead in February this year.
“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 rapper said that he’s “feeling good” – and he still has the diamond. He did not suffer any facial injuries.
