Rapper Lil Uzi Vert has parted ways with the pricey forehead diamond many joked gave him superpowers.
Vert says he was doing some crowd-surfing at a recent music festival when someone yanked out the jewel embedded in his forehead.
“I had a show at Rolling Loud (festival), and I jumped into the crowd and they kind of ripped it out,” he told TMZ about his performance in July in Miami.
In January, he tweeted about buying a pink diamond.
“I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now,” he tweeted. “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.”

This was after the rapper implanted the R359m million natural pink diamond on his forehead and arguably had the most expensive head in the world.
In one Instagram live he once told rapper Fat Joe that he embedded the diamond into his face to avoid losing it.
“I’m Lil Uzi, I’m turnt up. So $24 million on a ring is the stupidest idea because I’m gonna look down and that ring ain’t got be theirs… I know me. I wake up in odd places and different sceneries” He said.
