Ever since Jacob the Jeweler’s Hip-Hop reign came to an end, there have a been an endless sea of diamond peddlers vying for the crown to bling out rappers across the country.
Instagram account FakeWatchBuster has made a life mission of calling out struggle-encrusted accessories by various artists and recently found themselves in a standoff with Avianne & Co., after they alleged the NYC company gave Cee Lo Green a fugazzi $34K watch.
Avianne & Co. fired off a cease-and-desist letter to the guy behind the popular Instagram account FakeWatchBusta — because FWB recently posted a pic of CeeLo’s custom 20-carat diamond-studded Panerai from Avianne, and outed it as a bad “fake.”
Avianne demanded the CeeLo post be taken down immediately and replaced with an apology … as well as a comment saying the watch is in fact 100% real.
The photo has since been deleted from Instagram, but so far … no apology’s been posted.
Fun fact: Avianne is the same company that made Ciara’s 15-carat diamond engagement ring.
FakeWatchBuster fired even more shots following the C&D letter, saying “A fake AP Royal Oak Offshore. Look at how the subdial cuts off the 7 and the 5 and look how the date is placed cutting into the Tachymeter. Fake junk.”
Hit the gallery to pics of the of watches and jewels that are under the firing scope. Is FWB an expert or just trolling? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
