Lil Uzi Vert Implants A $24 Million Dollar Diamond On His Forehead
It seems that Lil Uzi Vert is definitely a man of his word. This past January Lil Uzi Vert, born Symere Bysil Woods, shared the news that he had plans to have a multi-million dollar pink diamond implanted in the middle of his forehead. The diamond is estimated to be worth around $24 million and, according to Lil Uzi Vert, has almost 11 carats. The ‘Myron’ rapper also shared via Twitter that he has been paying for this expensive purchase since 2017.
“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. A lot of M’s in my face.”
When asked by a fan why he isn’t putting the diamond in a ring instead of his face, Lil Uzi responded,
“If I lose the ring yeah U will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead ha ha jokes on you ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha… And yes I do have insurance.”
After waiting roughly 4 years, it appears that Lil Uzi has gone through with his facial procedure. A screenshot has recently surfaced online of the 26-year-old entertainer on Facetime with a friend. In the image, a pink diamond can clearly be seen in the middle of Lil Uzi’s head. Video footage was also shared of Lil Uzi in the studio recording music and rocking his pink diamond.
