Lil Uzi Vert’s $24m dollar forehead diamond was ripped out by fans at Rolling Loud, the rapper claims.
The diamond, which Uzi had been paying for since 2017, was implanted in his forehead earlier this year.
"I've been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now," Uzi tweeted back in January "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."
"I had a show at Rolling Loud (festival), and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out," Uzi said to TMZ. The rapper still has the diamond in his possession and is “feeling good’. The diamond has been replaced by a bar-bell piercing in the same place.

After a since deleted tweet saw the rapper saying he ‘might die’ if he didn’t have the diamond removed, Uzi removed the diamond from his forehead - but he had it put back in for his Rolling Loud performance.Tope Olufemi is Mixmag’s Digital Intern, follow them on Twitter
