Lil Uzi Vert’s new pink diamond is posing a threat to his life.
Earlier this week, the Philly rapper made headlines after he implanted the $24 million natural gem in the middle of his forehead.
Later, Uzi hit the studio with the diamond affixed to his skull and boasted about its magical powers. “I can’t believe I got this Stone either moving super different now,” he tweeted.
But things took a gruesome turn when he shared a shocking photo of blood oozing from his forehead and revealed the serious threat the diamond posed to his livelihood.
“If I don’t get it took out the right way I could die,” said Uzi, adding, “No seriously.”

However, he deleted the photo of his injury and posted another video, assuring fans that he was fine. “Ok we good,” he wrote.
The rare diamond, which is between 10 and 11 carats, was so expensive that it took four years to pay off. According to Uzi, it cost more than his home and all his cars combined including his Bugatti.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now,” he said. “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.”
