Lil Uzi Vert showed off his pink diamond forehead implant on Wednesday (February 3) that allegedly came with a whopping $24 million price tag. But fans on The Shade Room‘s post couldn’t help but notice it looked slightly off-center and comments such as “why it crooked” started popping up left and right.
In one of his Instagram Stories, posted shortly after news of his new accessory began making the rounds, the platinum-selling rapper emphatically denied there was anything wrong with the position of his lavish purchase.
“It’s actually in the middle,” he says. “It’s in the middle. I just got a long bar in it because I just got it pierced. When the swelling go down I’ll get a short bar so it won’t move. Y’all keep talking about it off because I got a long bar in it so it can move ’cause of the swelling. When it go down, it gonna be right though.”
Lil Uzi announced he was getting the diamond implant in a series of tweets on January 30, explaining he’d been on a payment plan with celebrity jeweler Elliot Eliantte since 2017.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now,” he wrote. “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. Diamond suit A lot of M’s in my face.”
But Texas rapper Sauce Walka has accused Lil Uzi of biting his style, writing on Instagram, “Keep following The leader lol. YALL LOOK AT @eliantte @liluzivert GETTIN TO COPY A N-GGA DRIP dick munching my style for 4-5 years lol yal still can’t see this shit DRIPGOD IS MY NAME TooMuchSauce lol S/o @liluzivert I KNO IM THE INFLUENCE TO YOUR INSPIRATION.”
Either way, Lil Uzi seems content with his purchase. Check out photos of the implant below.
