Canadian rapper, Aubrey Graham, popularly called Drake has reportedly bought an iPhone cover case made of 18-karat white gold, dotted with blue and white diamonds worth $400,000. 

The case is covered with tiny diamonds and features an OVO owl logo that has diamonds for eye, representing his record label.

The jeweller commissioned to do the work, Jason Arasheben shared photos of it on his Instagram handle, jasonofbeverlyhills with a caption: “Because we can’t do basic! Diamond iPhone case cover for our friend @champagnepapi.’’

The 32-year old rapper, who is into songwriting, record producing, acting and entrepreneur was said to have reached out to the jeweller to create something epic to add to his collection of jewels, according to High Snobiety.

He gained recognition as an actor on the teen drama television series, Degrassi: The Next Generation in the early 2000s, pursued his music career before departing the series in 2007 following the release of his debut mixtape, Room for Improvement. 

Shockingly Drake's blue-diamond iPhone X case for $400,000 isn't even the most expensive phone case someone can buy. Coincidentally, a Canadian jewelry designer named Anita Mai Tan makes the most expensive case in the world at least for now.

The case in question also has a base of 18k white gold and is decked out in diamonds: a total of 32 that cover 75 percent of the case. It is also adorned with a dragon that is 3D and blinking.

And because whoever would buy something that expensive would presumably be the kind of person who'd want to show it off, the phone actually hangs like a necklace from a gold chain.

The price? $880,000. Don't tell Drake that it exists, though, or that the next generation of iPhone is out in seven months.
