Earlier this year, Lil Uzi Vert had a pink diamond implanted into his forehead. Uzi said that if the diamond was removed from his head in the wrong way, he could die. It was reportedly worth $24 million. Earlier this year, he explained that he got the diamond in his forehead so he would never lose the expensive diamond.
“I’m Lil Uzi. I’m turnt up. So $24 million on a ring is the stupidest idea because I’m gonna look down and that ring ain’t gon’ be there,” he said during an appearance on “The Fat Joe Show.” “I know me. I wake up in odd places and different sceneries.”
“If I don’t get it took out the right way, I could die …..,” he captioned a selfie, which showed blood leaking from the natural pink diamond. “No seriously.”
The now-deleted tweet sparked reactions from fans who were concerned with his well-being. “Bro, if this is not safe,” one user wrote. “You better take it off. I don’t want to see you dead.”
