Ace Hood Fires Jeweler After Rolex Breaks at 2013 BET Awards
Ace Hood brags about waking up in a new Bugatti, but his swag fell several notches this weekend when the bezel fell off his Rolex watch at the BET Awards.
In an interview with Los Angeles radio station Power 106, the rapper talked about the jewelry malfunction. “When you spend so much money on a watch, certain things are not supposed to happen,” he said.
The ‘Trials & Tribulations’ creator explained that he spent $60,000 on the piece and as a result of it falling apart, he had to ditch the person who provided him with piece. “My jeweler, I definitely had to fire the jeweler,” Ace revealed. “He going through it, man.”
Celebrity jeweler Ben Baller threw in his two cents on the situation, defending the rhymer.
“Everyone slandering @acehood about this Rolex situation. I don’t know dude. Bottom line is Ace got too much money to be f—in with a bogus jeweler. I blame the jeweler. it’s embarrassing especially for this to happen during an interview. His jeweler needs to be put on blast and have his ass kicked. All I know is that Rolex bezels don’t “screw” off. The jeweler could have glued it on with poor adhesive causing it to “fall” off.”
Ben (who is not the shoddy jeweler in question) added, “Some of these other clown rappers cheerleading against Ace are the worst. Their jewelry is 100% fraudulent fugazi. Its the cats fronting with no real paper I can’t stand. But people know Ace ain’t broke.”
