He purchased the $24 million diamond from jewelry designer Elliot Eliantte, and spent the past four years paying for it.
“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.”
According to Uzi, the diamond cost more than his home and all his cars combined including his Bugatti. “Yes my Bugatti can’t even pay for it … all my cars together ,plus home,” he wrote. “This took so long now I can get this money.”
The diamond is his most expensive and favorite purchase ever, but he admits that he wouldn’t do it again. “Yes I will never do it again ….” he said.
Fans asked why he didn’t put it on a ring instead of his forehead. “If I lose the ring yeah U will make fun of me more than putting it in my forehead ha ha jokes on you ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…” he responded, adding, “And yes I do have insurance.”
Immediately after getting the pink diamond affixed to his skull, an “activated” Uzi hit the studio.
