Tekashi 6ix9ine was taken to the hospital after being ambushed by a bunch of assailants in a South Florida gym’s restroom on Tuesday.
According to his lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, the 26-year-old rapper, whose actual name is Daniel Hernandez, suffered bruising and facial damage.
Lazzaro said that the rapper tried to defend himself, but three or four people attacked him at the LA Fitness gym and beat him up inside and outside the sauna.He had bruises and cuts on his face, according to Lazzaro.
According to the attorney, the offenders ran away as soon as the employees heard the noise.
Lazzaro says that South Florida police were called, and an ambulance took Hernandez to a nearby hospital.It is not yet known if the rapper is still receiving medical attention.
Hernandez was released from federal jail in April 2020, and according to Lazzaro, he wants to make sure he receives some protection.
On nine counts, including racketeering, drug trafficking, and firearm violations, Hernandez was arrested in 2019 and given a two-year prison term for his membership in the Nine Trey Bloods gang.
After assisting federal agents in putting his pals in prison, Hernandez’s prison term was reduced. After a court referred to the rapper as a “model prisoner,” he was released early because of COVID-19 concerns.
Take a picture,” is heard one of Hernandez’s attackers saying in a video that was released on Twitter. I’m about to become well-known. Hernandez was seen leaving the gym while still bleeding in another video.
Hernandez was reportedly removed from a Miami baseball stadium on Friday because he was inebriated and upsetting the crowd, according to multiple media reports.
