Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly the victim of an attack on Sunday, March 19th, at a gym in Florida. According to sources close to the rapper, he was in the sauna when two men wearing masks entered and began assaulting him.
The sources say that Tekashi attempted to fight off the attackers, but was outnumbered and ultimately overpowered. He was taken to a local hospital, where he is being treated for injuries sustained in the attack.
It is unclear at this time who the attackers were or what their motive may have been. However, given Tekashi’s history of legal troubles and ongoing beefs with other artists, many are speculating that it may have been a targeted attack. This is not the first time that Tekashi has been the victim of violence. In 2018, he was kidnapped and robbed in New York City, and in 2020, he was reportedly the target of a shooting.
