As Ariana Grande slayed her performance of “No Tears Left to Cry” at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, most people might not notice that the singer suffered a wardrobe malfunction. While it wasn’t an embarrassing one, the unfortunate mishap could cost her a lot.
The 24-year-old singer/actress took the stage at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas in a black mini dress, black over the knee platform boots by Casadei and a black ribbon in her hair, with a Djula diamond choker adorning her neck. But the massive diamond necklace, which is reportedly worth $169,000, was missing throughout the latter portion of her performance.
The necklace apparently snapped during Ariana’s rousing performance. The clasp reportedly broke while the former Nickelodeon star performed the choreography with one of her backup dancers, bending backwards on the staircase while holding onto the male dancer.
Ariana continued the performance like a pro, though, completing it without any glitch. She also wore Harry Kotlar diamond studs, worth $80,000, for her performance.
