Written by Dj Rage on September 2, 2020
Lil Baby is real particular about his jewelry. At one point, the rapper and his Back Outside tour mate Lil Durk shut down an Atlanta jewelry store to pick out their favorite new pieces.
New York-based jeweler Rafaello & Co. recently came under fire from the Atlanta rapper after he alleged they sold him a Patek Philippe watch valued at $400,000. However, the watch turned out to be a fake. Naturally, the jeweler to the stars took to Instagram on Friday (September 17) to make good on the issue and formally apologize for the fake watch.
“I personally want to apology to Lil Baby for not doing my due diligence when selling him the Patek watch,” the company wrote. “I should’ve inspected the watch after purchasing it from the dealer. I take full responsibility for not doing my job properly. I personally would NEVER knowingly sell him or anyone else anything that is not 100% authentic.”
