Lil Uzi Vert’s diamond was ripped out of his head by a crowd, he still has it

In February I lamented the stupidity of Lil Uzi Vert getting a $24 million pink diamond implanted into his forehead. I worried that he was setting himself up to be Vision but for real. Well it looks like I wasn’t too far off in my prediction skills (tarot is my jam). Lil Uzi recently spoke to TMZ on the red carpet at Jay Z’s party. He said that his diamond was “forcibly removed” from his forehead while he was crowd surfing back in July. Luckily he still has it though. Below are a few more details via People:

“I had a show at Rolling Loud and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out,” Lil Uzi Vert told the outlet of the jewelry, which allegedly cost $24 million.

“I’m feeling good,” he added, also revealing, “I still have the diamond so I feel good.”

Back in February, the Grammy-nominated rapper shared a video on Instagram showing off the massive pink diamond pierced into his forehead. At the time, he also gave his followers a look at the sparkling new stone in videos on his Instagram Story as well.

“𝕭𝖊𝖆𝖚𝖙𝖞 𝖎𝖘 𝖕𝖆𝖎𝖓 💎💕®️,” he captioned the initial post, which has since been deleted from his Instagram feed.

This entire situation is very “play stupid games, win stupid prizes.” Lil Uzi should be happy that he is alive and that he only experienced a bit of pain. Lil Uzi could have met a terrible end because of his need to show off his wealth. He also could have lost the diamond altogether. As I said from the jump, the purchase and subsequent “implantation” of this pink diamond was a waste of time and money. There are so many other things Uzi could have done with the $24 million. I am not one to watch celebrity spending habits but I couldn’t help but shake my head at this. Despite this, I am sure the incident of Lil Uzi having his diamond pulled out of his forehead by a throng of fans has emboldened him to do something even more ridiculous.

    The crowd did him a favour.

    I went lightheaded just reading that headline.

  3. manda says:

    I still don’t understand how it was in there in the first place

    • Noki says:

      …..and how it manages from not getting an infection,im no skin expert but i find this gross and juvenile.

  4. Sofia says:

    I guess Thanos wanted his infinity stone

  5. lemontwist says:

    Oooof. Dude is lucky to be alive. From his vibe on the TMZ video, it looks like maybe he knows it too?

    Crowd surfing when the crowd knows there’s a $24 million jewel implanted in your skull. That is a… choice.

  6. Noki says:

    My question is how did this little known rapper afford a $24 mil diamond? I dont buy it at all!

    • terra says:

      IIRC, there was speculation that it wasn’t actually a $24 million jewel in the first place which would not be surprising.

      Not that it really matters because whether it was or not he claimed it was. That would be enough for some enterprising, yet criminally-minded soul to hatch a scheme on par with Wile E. Coyote.

    • KTate says:

      According to my children, he is and has been quite popular! I can only think of high school French when I hear his name, I think “GREEN”!

  7. Lucy2 says:

    Well you didn’t need a third eye to see that coming…

  8. KTate says:

    I bet the diamond he wears in public is a fake while the real one (if there is one) is in a safe.

  9. Jess says:

    It wouldn’t have killed him anyways. It’s just a dermal piercing…not an actual implanting into his head. That being said, the shape and color of that diamond already looks like a gaping open wound when it’s on. I’ve been reading stories that say this is all for publicity though, and he already publicly stated a while back that he couldn’t get the piercing to heal with the diamond attached and just wears the barbell now and that he did not have the diamond at rolling whatever to begin with.

  10. Marigold says:

    I have my doubts that it was a real 24 mil Diamond.

  11. Ellie66 says:

    Oh please that is not a 24 million dollar Diamond! Probably a 2,000$ lab-created sapphire.

  12. BeanieBean says:

    Something nice: if the place with his plants is his apartment/home, then I like his style. Can’t say much for his choices in adornment, though.

  13. Bread and Circuses says:

    Yes, I think it’s all a bit silly, but that is a super-pretty diamond and hey, it looks good on him.
