Four months after Lil Uzi Vert implanted a $24 million diamond on his forehead, it appears that he has removed it. In one Instagram Story posted by Uzi’s girlfriend JT, the couple is seen dancing and kissing, but the diamond is no longer there.

The rare diamond, which he purchased from jewelry designer Elliot Eliantte, was so expensive that it took four years to pay off. According to Uzi, it cost more than his home and all his cars combined including his Bugatti.
“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.”
The stone came with its share of pain, revealing the bloody injury he suffered as a result of trying to affix it to his skull. “If I don’t get it took out the right way I could die,” said Uzi.
Uzi hasn’t confirmed his reason for removing the diamond just yet but recently expressed his plans to wear it as a ring instead
