Is Lil Uzi Vert for real? The rapper is not known to shy away from spending so much money on extravagant things.
In fact, he recently made one of the most expensive purchases for this year.
The New York Post reported that the "XO Tour Llif3" hitmaker spent a whopping $24 million for the natural pink diamond currently implanted on his forehead.
But he's not stopping there. The 26-year-old rapper is reportedly planning to make some spontaneous and extravagant purchases.
This time around, Lil Uzi Vert wants to buy a planet, with his close friend Grimes announcing the shocking news.
Grimes wrote on Twitter, responding to a photo of a planet called WASP-127b, "Apparently @LILUZIVERT owns this planet - just a heads up."
NASA discovered the planet in 2016 and is reportedly 1.4 times the size of Jupiter.
The exoplanet has a mass of 0.1647 Jupiters and takes 4.2 Earth days to complete one orbit of its star.
It is also about 0.0484 AU from its star and about 522.6 light-years away from the Solar System.
The "20 Min" hitmaker responded to his friend, saying, "I tried 2 surprise everyone. Still working on it."
The "Oblivion" singer then claimed that the documentation for the planet acquisition was "almost complete," even using the hashtag, Neuralink.
It is Grimes' boyfriend, Elon Musk's, organization working to "develop brain chip implants that connect humans to computers."
