Not long after claiming he was ‘going to prison’, the US artist has reportedly been admitted to hospital after he was ‘pistol whipped, robbed and kidnapped’.
According to TMZ, sources claimed three hooded gunmen got out of their car, grabbed Tekashi and knocked him unconscious.
‘We’re told the next thing Tekashi knew, he was in the back seat of the car as the gunmen were driving around, telling him if they didn’t get what they wanted from him they would kill him,’ the publication reported, before the men allegedly raided his house.
Around $750k (£571k) in jewellery and between $15k (£11k) and $20k (£15k) in cash was reportedly taken from the premises, while Tekashi’s partner and their daughter were reportedly inside the property but unhurt.
TMZ claimed the rapper was then able to escape the vehicle, with the gunmen still inside, flagging down a passerby who called 911 at an intersection.
He was reportedly transported to a hospital by ambulance where it has been claimed he’s received various tests, including a CT scan.
It comes after the Brooklyn native posted to Instagram that he could be going to jail ‘forever’, and after he was pictured outside of court this week, fans are suspecting he may genuinely be about to be incarcerated. Hernandez was arrested this month on an outstanding warrant after an incident where he allegedly strangled a 16-year-old in a Houston mall in January.
In April, members of 6ix9ine’s crew were reportedly arrested after shots were fired in New York’s Bedford-Stuyvestant, and a few days later it was confirmed that 6ix9ine was under investigation for his potential involvement in an incident where Chief Keef was shot.
