For Millennials. By Millennials.
Sometimes, famous and rich people do things beyond our understanding. One example is Lil Uzi getting a diamond fixed on his forehead. However, he was seen without the bling, and people got curious. He said someone tried to steal the jewel during a recent concert.
A few months back, the rapper announced he would get a diamond fixed on his forehead.
In February, Lil Uzi debuted a massive pink diamond in the middle of his forehead. At the time of the reveal, he claimed he had been saving up for four years to get this bling. According to him, the diamond cost him $24 million and is around 10 to 11 carats. Needless to say, Lil Uzi expressed his happiness and joy over this jewel. When a fan suggested he put the diamond in a ring, Lil Uzi replied:
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
However, only a few days later, his forehead started to bleed. In a now-deleted tweet, Lil Uzi shared a picture of himself with a bleeding forehead and mentioned that he might die if he does not get it removed. In the end, he had to bid goodbye to his beloved diamond.
A few days back, Lil Uzi revealed the real reason behind the removal of his diamond.
In a video, Lil Uzi talks about his forehead diamond to the paparazzi. According to him, fans tried to rip it out of his forehead at Rolling Loud. He said:
I had a show at Rolling Loud and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out.
However, he did not get hurt or misplace the diamond.
I’m feeling good. I still have the diamond so I feel good.
Despite his explanation, people are speculating what exactly is the right reason. In the past, Lil Uzi stated the bleeding forehead to be the reason. However, now he is blaming his fans for stealing it.
Interestingly, his net worth is way less than the pink diamond’s cost.
Despite being a rapper, Lil Uzi has gained more recognition through his diamond. However, some are curious as to how he could afford it. According to the reports, his net worth is around $16 million. On the other hand, the oink diamond cost him $24 million. However, he claims to be paying for it for years. The jewel is a custom-made piece specially designed for Lil Uzi. While the piece is making headlines, the maker of this bling, Elliot Eliantte, is best known for this kind of jewelry. From Hailey Bieber to Khloe Kardashian, this jeweler only caters to the elites of Hollywood.
For now, Lil Uzi has no jewels embedded in his body. But let’s see if he would do that again or not.
