Three men are said to have stolen $20,000 in cash from the artist's home after following him from a music video shoot
6ix9ine (aka Tekashi69) was reportedly attacked, robbed and kidnapped after filming a music video in Brooklyn.
TMZ report that the rapper was followed by three men as he made his way home from the shoot. As he arrived at his house, it’s said that the attackers blocked his drive before forcing him into their vehicle.
Sources said that hooded gunmen knocked Tekashi69 unconscious by pistol whipping him – before entering his home and stealing $750,000 of jewellery and $15,000-$20,000 in cash. Tekashi69’s daughter and her mother were in the property at the time but not hurt.
After being driven around, the rapper escaped from the car as the three men fled the scene. 6ix9ine was hospitalised after seeking help from a stranger. He is currently undergoing tests including a CT scan.
Earlier this month, 6ix9ine was arrested after allegedly choking 16-year-old. The arrest is believed to be connected to an alleged altercation that occurred in January. A 16-year-old claimed that they were choked by the musician at Galeria Mall in Houston. He was reportedly detained by police at JFK Airport as he returned from his European tour.
6ix9ine’s career has been fraught with a number of legal issues.
In May this year, he was also detained for assaulting a police officer and driving without a license. Back in 2015, he pled guilty to a felony count of a use of a child in a sexual performance.
