Ah, another day, another Kardashian Kontroversy, amirite? No, this time it actually has nothing to do with questionable Photoshop skills on Instagram photos—it has everything to do with Kim Kardashian recently investing in an opal and diamond encrusted grill for her bottom teeth reportedly worth $18,000 that a random person on Twitter dot com says "destroyed the game."

People in the comments of Smino's post agreed, and provided proof that he actually did an opal grill in 2020 before Kim did. Nelly also responded to the discourse on Instagram, writing in a Shade Room post that "Yessserr my nephew @smino already been did that... hard for stl to get our credit tho..!!"

(It's also worth mentioning that Erykah Badu talked about achieving her goal of getting a full opal grill set back in 2019, saying she went on a three-year hunt for a jeweler to bring her vision to life.)
