Lil Uzi Vert is once again making headlines with his extravagant purchases. According to widely acclaimed musician (and partner of Elon Musk) Grimes, who’s supposedly close friends with Uzi, the rapper is close to wrapping up the documentation needed in order to complete the purchase of a planet.

The planet is called WASP-127b, a gas giant exoplanet larger than Jupiter. Once Lil Uzi Vert completes the paperwork, he would be the first human ever to legally own a planet. We don’t know exactly how much he’s paying to own this planet, which (according to Google) is over 870 light years away. We can safely assume that Lil Uzi will reveal the figure to us once the process is complete. I mean—why buy a planet if you can’t tell everyone how much you paid for it?
This is WASP-127b, a gas giant exoplanet 1.4x larger than Jupiter orbiting a yellow dwarf star (like ours)!

Back in February, Lil Uzi Vert paid $24,000,000 to have a ridiculously sized diamond and implanted into his forehead. Who knows what he will do next?
