Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine rushed to hospital after being badly beaten in gym sauna
American rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has been rushed to hospital for injuries he sustained after being brutally beaten by a group of men in a South Florida gymnasium.
6ix9ine’s lawyer, Lance Lazarustold TMZ that the rapper was inside the sauna on Tuesday, March 21, of an LA Fitness when he was attacked by guys without warning.
Lazzaro says 6ix9ine tried to fight off the fighters, but there were too many of them, beating him to a pulp before running away. Lance notes that 6ix9ine had no security with him at the time of the attack.
Gym staff heard the commotion and immediately notified a manager. Police and EMS were then called to the scene and he was taken to hospital by ambulance.
He was injured in the face, with cuts and swelling. He was also injured in the jaw, ribs and back.
While it’s unclear if the attack had anything to do with the rapper’s cooperation with federal authorities over a gang-related case that led to his early release from federal prison, Lazzaro said he would call the feds to make sure 6ix9ine gets the protection he clearly needs.
