‘Stolen’ Ice Spice Queen Chain Was Reportedly Just A TikTok Hoax (VIDEO)
Ice Spice was not the victim of chain-snatching as suggested in a recently-circulated video, and was instead reportedly a TikTok hoax meant to drum up some viral attention.
The clip, which has over 6.7 million views as of Thursday, shows a man flaunting Spice’s iced-out “Queen” necklace in a video posted to social media on Wednesday.

The footage prompted genuine concern for the music artist, however it turns out the whole thing was nothing more than a prank, according to TMZ.
The TikToker who posted the video received widespread backlash for appearing to have robbed a woman of her chain.
However, a source close to the rapper told the outlet that Ice has never even owned the piece of jewelry.

The “Queen” brand happens to belong to Nicki Minaj, while Ice has mostly worn a custom-made “Isis” pendant throughout the last few years.
She upgraded her current $100K chain in January after dropping her “Like…?” EP, and showed it off when she met Kim Kardashian and North West, in a heartwarming – and authentic – viral moment.
