Rapper Lil Uzi Vert has claimed that his $24million (£17m) diamond face implant was ripped off during a concert

He had jumped into the crowd when he performed at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami in July and has said that the crowd “kind of ripped [the diamond] out”.

The Drankin N Smokin artist had the diamond implant into his forehead back in February, four years after he began paying it off in 2017.

He told TMZ : “I had a show at Rolling Loud and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out.”

“I’m feeling good,” he said. “I still have the diamond so I feel good.”

He said he doesn’t have any facial damage and there is a temporary barbell piercing in its place.

While Uzi said he still had the diamond in his possession, it is unclear if he plans to have it reattached.

Back in June, Uzi said his diamond had started to bleed and he would need to have it removed.

He had it put back in in the run-up to the festival, where he says it was ripped back out again.

In January Uzi revealed he’d spent years saving up so he could buy the diamond from his favourite jewellery designer, Elliot Eliantte.

The jeweller said the forehead piercing is as “safe as any other piercing”.

Uzi tweeted: “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 Ms in my face,” he added.

The musician claimed the diamond was “10 almost 11 carats”.

He said that he decided to have the sparkler implanted into his forehead so he wouldn’t lose it.

Lil Uzi Vert shot to fame in 2016 with the song Money Longer and later featured on Migos’s hit single Bad and Boujee.









He is set to perform in three UK shows starting September 6, before performing at London’s Wireless Festival on September 10.

Uzi is currently working on his upcoming album The Pink Tape, which he says is currently in the process of being mixed.

“Well, it’s going through its mixing process right now,” Uzi said on social media.

“Because last time I dropped an album, it did really well. It was actually my highest-selling album, but it was experimental on the mixing part, not the actual music, so this time I went experimental with the music and traditional on the mixing.”
