Lil Uzi Vert and City Girls rapper JT have been dating since around 2019 and it appears their relationship is going strong.
As JT turned 29 years old on Friday (December 3), Uzi decided to shower her in lavish gifts, which included a brand new black McLaren 720s. The luxury sports car retails around $300,000 (although a McLaren F1 once fetched over $20 million at auction).
“WTF!” she captioned an Instagram photo of the car. “I love youuuuuu! @liluzivert.”
JT’s thoughtful boyfriend also rented out the entire Nickelodeon Studios Park at the American Dream Mall in New Jersey for a reported $50,000. According to TMZ, they brought along around 20 friends and spent the day enjoying the rides.
The Florida native shared a series of photos from the adventure to her Instagram with the title “Best Birthday Ever” and added in the caption, “I love you, I appreciate you.”
Less than 24 hours later, JT and her City Girls partner Yung Miami were in Los Angeles to attend the Variety Hitmakers Brunch, where they were honored with the Future Is Female Award. During their speech, Yung Miami hinted it was tough to pull JT away from her birthday shenanigans.
“We are like normal girls,” JT said in part. “One day we want to be rappers, the next day we want to be …” then Young Miami jumped in and finished her sentence, “… with our mans.” With that, JT erupted with laughter before thanking the “City Girls and City Boys” for their support.
City Girls were just one of several artists honored with a Variety Hitmakers Award on Saturday (December 4). Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, Mike Dean, Jack Harlow, Billie Eilish, her brother Finneas and Normani were also among the recipients. Pusha T and Chloe Bailey were on deck to present as well.
Dean, who won Producer of the Year for his work on Kanye West’s Donda album and much more, was on hand to collect his award and had the distinct pleasure of presenting his “Wildflower Wildfire” collaborator Lana Del Rey with the Decade of the Year Award.
“It’s an honor to be recognized for my work this year,” he said during his speech. “First of all, I need to thank my girlfriend Louise Donegan, my creative partner in everything I do and putting up with the long hours and never seeing me … I’m a terrible public speaker, so I’m just gonna read this now.
“Thanks to the Recording Academy for all the nominations this year … we are lucky to do what we love every day. This year, I was able to branch out and work with more people and artists than ever. That brings me to Lana Del Rey. I’d like to introduce her. We collaborated on her last album.”
He later explained on Instagram, “Thanks to @shirleyhalperin for making this happen. So excited and nervous speaking I skipped thanking you! And thanks to @variety and @garymarella for presenting so well. And sorry to @lanadelrey for screwing up your intro so bad! Sorry I can’t read!”
