This past spring, Lil Uzi Vert was trending heavily after he showed off a pink diamond that he engraved into his forehead. The Philadelphia rapper also revealed that the stone cost a whopping $24 million. This was initially purchased from popular jeweler, Elliot Eliantte, who has worked with some of the hottest rappers in the industry. Uzi began paying Elantte since 2017 and this year, finally finished paying off the stone. Many online ended up viewing that as a huge waste of money.
Uzi Has Removed The Diamond
The pink stone in Uzi’s forehead may have been something very brief, after finally putting it in his body and paying for it since 2017. In a new video posted to social media with his girlfriend JT, of the City Girls, he is seen without the stone, as he may be done sporting the very expensive diamond. In the clip posted, Uzi is making faces with JT, as they also end up sharing a kiss together at he end of it.
Uzi Said Removing Diamond Could’ve Caused Death
Uzi definitely looks like he was able to safely remove that stone from his forehead without any major health issues coming with it. In February, he revealed on social media that if something ever went wrong with removing the stone, he could possibly face death. This could possibly be due to many blood being lost from his both and also some infections playing a role in that as well. Thankfully, this was not the case at all and seems to be okay.
Uzi And JT Have Been Showing Each Other Off On Social Media
JT and Uzi frequently discuss each other publicly on Twitter as well as post videos of each other showing plenty of public affection. There were dating rumors surrounding the two in 2020, but they ended up confirming their relationship. Yung Miami, the other member of the City Girls, is currently dating multi platinum producer, Southside, who she had a baby with, in 2019. For JT and Uzi, they are still remaining strong and definitely seem happy for now.
