Did Lil Uzi Vert remove the diamond?
No he didn’t remove the diamond but fans did during a performance.
Fans at a music festival ripped off the pink diamond that was implanted into Lil Uzi Vert‘s forehead in year 2021, according to the rapper.
Lil Uzi Vert, real name Symere Bysil Woods, made the revelation while attending Jay-40/40 Z’s club’s 18th anniversary in late August 2021.
According to TMZ, the incident occurred in July during a performance at Rolling Loud Miami 2021, an annual hip-hop music festival.
“I had a show at Rolling Loud, and I jumped into the crowd, and they kind of ripped it out,” Uzi, 26, explained to TMZ. “I still have the diamond, so I’m happy.”
The “XO Tour Llif3” rapper debuted the forehead piercing to his 13 million Instagram followers in February with a photo. The diamond is worth $24 million.
He stated on Twitter that he purchased the diamond from jewelry designer Elliot Eliantte and has been repaying it since 2017. He later revealed that the diamond was “10 almost 11 carats” in weight and cost more than his entire car and home combined.
Uzi posted a photo of the pink diamond piercing on Instagram, where he wrote, “beauty is pain.” He also tweeted a newly deleted photo of blood dripping down his brow, with the caption: “I could die if I don’t get it removed properly… No, I’m serious.”
In another tweet, he displayed the diamond and told fans, “OK, we good.”
When a fan asked why he didn’t put the diamond in a ring, Uzi replied, “If I lose the ring, yeah, [you] will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead.”

“It’s not beautiful because it lasts.” Rapper Lil Uzi Vert appeared to learn that lesson this summer when someone ripped his signature US$24-million diamond piercing out of his forehead during a concert.
The rapper, real name Symere Bysil Woods, told TMZ that he misplaced the diamond while crowd-surfing at a concert in Miami in July.
He also stated that he recovered the pricey pink diamond, which means that it is not missing. However, when he stated that he recovered the diamond, he did not specify how he did so, and he did not place the pink diamond back in his forehead.
The two-time Grammy nominee got the diamond piercing earlier in 2021, and it quickly went viral as fans compared him to The Vision, the android member of Marvel’s Avengers. Vision’s abilities are derived from a magical gem implanted in his forehead.
At the time, Lil Uzi stated that he had been paying for the diamond since 2017. According to his friend CEO Slow, it cost $24 million.
Fans compared Lil Uzi’s mishap to Thanos ripping the gem from Vision’s head in Avengers: Infinity War this week, and the Vision comparisons were flying around social media once again.
Fortunately, Lil Uzi didn’t require a Disney+ spinoff to bring him back to life after he lost the gem. Instead, he appears to have abandoned the diamond in favor of a simple barbell piercing.
Thanos was unavailable for comment.

The rapper revealed the implant in February 2021, claiming that the pink rock was “10, almost 11 carats” and that he chose to place it in his forehead because he couldn’t trust himself not to lose it. Since 2017, he has been paying for it in installments.
Three months after debuting the ostentatious accessory, the rapper temporarily removed the piercing implanted in his forehead in June 2021.
While a representative for jeweller Elliott Eliantte claimed in an interview with Rolling Stone that the diamond was as “safe as any other piercing,” just days after Lil Uzi Vert had the rock fitted, he claimed it was causing him bleeding and posted a now-deleted gruesome photo of blood coming out of the implant.

Uzi first mentioned the diamond in his January 2021 tweet. Since 2017, he has been paying for a natural pink diamond crafted by a designer named Elliot Eliantte. “The stone cost so much that I’ve been paying for it since 2017,” he wrote in the tweet. That was my first encounter with a genuine natural pink diamond.”
He also tweeted a video of his diamond with the caption, “OK, we good.”
Following the incident, Uzi posted a photo of his brow on social media but later deleted it. However, a fan took the photos and shared them on Twitter.
According to Uzi, the diamond is nearly 11 carats in weight and is worth more than all of his cars and home combined. When asked if the diamond was worth all of his cars, he responded, “Yes, my Bugatti can’t even pay for it.” Even all of my cars and my house cannot.”
