What Happened to Tekashi 6ix9ine

Tekashi 6ix9ine, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was in a sauna at an LA Fitness south of West Palm Beach on March 21 when the three suspects approached him and “beat him up,” as per his lawyer.

“He had cuts to his face and bruises,” NBC News cited lawyer Lance Lazzaro’s statement. He said the 26-year-old rapper tried to fight back from the group who is alleged o have immediately fled the scene when employees heard the disturbance. The video of the unfortunate incident was shared on social media, showing the rapper walking through the gym with a bloody face.

Tekashi 6ix9ine was also once jailed in 2019 when he plead guilty to multiple counts of racketeering, drug trafficking, and firearms offenses. Due to his testimony that helped prosecutors convict two notorious gang leaders, his supposedly 47 years sentence was reduced to two years.
