Buying an expensive item on the resale market is
always a shaky proposition, even for celebrities. Lil
Baby recently purchased what he believed to be a
rare 40th anniversary Patek Phillipe watch which he
recently flexed on Instagram as the newest addition to
his lucrative collection.
Watch savants began examining the limited-edition
watch and warned Lil Baby that he may have paid
upwards of a rumored $400,000 for fake bling. A
Fake Watch Buster Instagram page was on the case
and let Baby hear about his scamming mishap.
Once the Atlanta native got wind of being swindled
and publicly embarrassed, he took to Instagram to
vent his frustrations with the Swiss watch company
for not having him on a direct-to-consumer list that is
usually reserved for their most valued customers.
“@Patekphillipe See this is why I need to be on the
list,” the 4PF rapper wrote. “Aftermarket jewelers
going to make me do something I shouldn’t be doing.”
While Lil Baby looks to right the wrongs of his faux
purchase, Lil Durk sent out a warning earlier this
week for people to be wary of buying fake jewelry
pieces. The Voice of the Heroes collaborators are
close friends and currently on the Back Outside Tour
together so there’s a chance Durk’s message could’ve
been related to Lil Baby’s situation.
“Stop buying all this jewelry without knowing what you doing,” Durk wrote on his Instagram Story. “Alot of the shit fake and some is overpriced. Get 1 jeweler and stick to em I’m telling you y’all ass gone be pissed when the truth come out.” Who will be the next contestant to be burned on The Price is Right.
