Rap star Lil Uzi could be forced to remove a pink diamond he recently had implanted into his forehead. The Philly rap star took to Instagram to show a photo of blood pouring from behind the diamond, which is right between his eyes.
“If I don’t get it took out the right way I could die…no seriously,” he wrote on Twitter.
Uzi recently had the $24 million piece of jewelry surgically inserted between his eyes by celebrity jeweler Elliot Eliantte. Uzi revealed he had been saving since 2017 to purchase the 11-carat, flawless pink diamond after he fell in love with the stone.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now . This one Stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017. That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond. A lot of M’s in my face,” Lil Uzi boasted.
