Lil Baby Receives Four Free Diamond Rings + A Refund From Jeweler Who Sold Him Fake Watch
From fake jewelry to free jewelry, Lil Baby should be a happy customer.
As previously reported, Lil Baby mistakenly purchased a fake Patek Philippe Nautilus 40th anniversary watch for $400,000.
After flaunting the watch on social media, an Instagram page named @FakeWatchBuster revealed the watch was fake reposting it with the caption,
“@lilbaby unfortunately that’s a fake Patek Philippe Nautilus 40th Anniversary. He got scammed and most probably he paid 400k for that, he should take back his money and blast who sold that fugazi. A genuine Patek Philippe Nautilus 40th anniversary [is] worth approx 620k USD (Average market Price-Unworn condition).”
Following the revelation, Rafaello & Co., who sold Lil Baby the watch, reached out to the rapper and took full responsibility for the mistake. He also gifted the rapper four rings, which spell out the word ‘four’ for free, and returned his $400K.
Lil Baby showed off the rings in a now-deleted video on his Instagram along with the caption,
“Now @rafaelloandco y’all Kno better than to sell ME of all people a FAKE Or anything that could be called a FAKE! I stand on my name the same way y’all should! Ain’t no such thing as a mistake when that money is involved ?????!! Don’t F***** Play Wit me Cause when I’m on that, I’m on that.”
Explaining his side of the story, Rafaello said,
“Everyone that knows me, knows that I don’t play games when it comes to my brand and especially my client’s brands. I personally want to apologize to @lilbaby for not doing my due diligence when selling him the Patek watch. I should have inspected the watch after purchasing it from the dealer. I take full responsibility for not doing my job properly.”
He also added,
“Bottom line, we stand on our name just like he does, that’s why @lilbaby got 4 rings for FREE and his money back because we didn’t do our homework on the watch and we take full responsibility for that. but LET ME BE CLEAR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN INTENTIONALLY!!”
He went on to share another post of the rings and refund he gave Lil Baby.
