An American rapper is to have a huge natural pink diamond, valued at $24m, embedded in his forehead.
Lil Uzi Vert, 26, told fans he’d been paying for the gem – which he describes as “10 almost 11 carats” since 2017 and it was now time to have it implanted. It cost more than his Bugatti, other cars and house, he said.
Vert – real name Symere Bysil Woods, from Philadelphia – explained why he hadn’t chosen a more traditional setting for the diamond.
“If I lose the ring yeah U will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead ha ha jokes on youâ€¦” he tweeted.
He reportedly bought the diamond from Elliot Eliantte, the go-to jeweler for big-money rappers. Vert gives no details on his Twitter account of the procedure to embed it.
