Last weekend, Lil Uzi Vert took to Twitter to explain how he’s been paying popular jeweler, Elliot Eliantte, money since 2017 for a $24 million pink diamond he bought from him. Uzi also revealed his plan to put the diamond on his forehead. He opposed the idea of just putting it on a ring because he believes that he’d lose it easily.
Now, the Philly rapper actually went through with this plan as the pink diamond is now in his forehead. He was seen with this after a video was posted to social media. Uzi was happily seen with it all while in the studio.
During Uzi’s discussion about the diamond on Twitter, he also added that this diamond costs more than his home and cars combined. The question is why he wanted this diamond so much to the point where he’d still be paying it off four years later.
This comes after a huge 2020 where Uzi’s sophomore album, “Eternal Atake,” was finally released. It debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and was led by the chart-topping Billboard Hot 100 single, “Futsal Shuffle 2020.” A week later, the deluxe edition was released as “Lil Uzi Vert Vs The World 2.” In the fall, he also put out an album with Future titled “Pluto x Baby Pluto.” That project reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
Check out a closer look at the $24 million pink diamond in Uzi’s forehead below.
