6ix9ine is in the hospital. The New York hip-hop artist was rushed to the hospital after he was brutally attacked by a group of men in the sauna of a Florida gym, according to his lawyer.
The 26-year-old rapper’s lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, confirmed to TMZ that the controversial host was in the LA Fitness sauna with no bodyguards when he was attacked without warning. The lawyer said he plans to ask the federal authorities for protection after the rapper’s testimony helped put his gang mates behind bars.
Tekashi was then taken to the local hospital in an ambulance. The photos obtained by the publication show that the spitting “GOOBA” is wounded in the face, and his jaw is covered in blood. It is also said that his back and ribs were injured.
In a video posted online immediately after the attack, Tekashi can be seen with his face covered in blood, walking to the exit in his socks, saying, “You all niggas attacked me.” Other social media posts briefly showed the attack taking place, including on the face of one of the men.
6ix9ine was hardly keeping a low profile as he was kicked out of LoanDepot Park in Miami on Friday after he got drunk and made a scene during the World Baseball Classic. According to an eyewitness, the artist “Gummo” was “very drunk and interfered with other guests of the experience.” The source added: “He was drunk, drunk and out of control. There were a lot of families there last night and he disturbed people.”
In a video circulating online, 6ix9ine can be seen standing and blocking other fans’ view as he pulls the net. He also lost his balance and fell down due to drinking too much. The presenter, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was eventually taken off the podium. As he left, he waved a large Mexican flag.
