They say having too much money can go to your head, but for Lil Uzi Vert, it’s gotten too literal.
The 26-year-old rapper has splurged on a $24 million pink diamond that’s it’s taken him four years to pay off, according to Page Six, and now that he’s got it he won’t let it out of his sight.
Well, as long as he’s looking in a mirror. He had it implanted in his forehead.
The diamond comes from his favorite jewelry designer, Elliot Eliantte, who must consider this his easiest commission ever. The diamond is between 10 and 11 carats and when asked if he spent more on the diamond than on cars, he answered, “Yes my Bugatti can’t even pay for it … all my cars together, plus home, this took so long now I can get this money.”
When responding to a fan who asked why he didn’t just put the stone on a ring, as is traditional, he 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.”
Not sure if he has a sense of humor about having a rock grafted to his face or not, but lots of other people were making jokes:
It’s a rapper’s job to be larger than life, but I hope he doesn’t make this a trend. Hospitals are busy enough without a wave of forehead infections to deal with.
