Lil Uzi Vert implants a $24 million pink diamond in his forehead

Lil Uzi Vert has taken face bling to a whole new level. 

On Wednesday, DJ Akademiks shared a Instagram video of the “XO Tour Llif3″ rapper in the studio with $24 million pink diamond implanted in his forehead. 

In another video, taken from Uzi’s Instagram Live, he explained the diamond is currently being held in by a piercing. 

“This looks excellent in the middle,” said Uzi. “I got a long bar in it because I just got it pierced and it’s swelling. When it goes down, I’ll get a short bar so it won’t move.” 

In disbelief about the diamond’s price tag, fans on Twitter have called for Uzi to share the receipt to prove how much he actually spent on it, but it seems he might be having other regrets. 

“I can’t believe I got this stone either. Moving super different now,” Uzi tweeted with a brain emoji. 

Uzi first announced he was going to have the diamond implanted in his face last week on Twitter. The 26-year-old said the 10 or 11 karat diamond came from celebrity jewelry designerElliot Eliantte, and he hinted it might be his most expensive purchase yet.

“Yea I’ll never do that again,” Uzi tweeted to fans about the diamond, which he’s apparently been paying for since 2017.
