Tekashi 6ix9ine Pistol-Whipped, Robbed, Basically Left for Dead
Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine, who sometimes goes by the simple moniker of 6ix9ine, was brutally beaten to near-death very early on Sunday morning.
Be warned: the photo down below of the star is not for the faint of heart.
According to TMZ, Tekashi completed filming a music video around 4 a.m. in Brooklyn and then drove home.
Upon arrival, however, three hooded gunmen emerged from a car that had been blocking his driveway and knocked the artist out with their guns.
The thieves tossed 6ix9ine in their car and waited until he regained consciousness.
At this point, they threatned to kill him if he did not hand over his jewelry and money.
Tekashi agreed and remained behind with one of the mugger while the other two proceeded to raid his home. (Sources say Tekashi’s baby mama and child were inside at the time, but were not harmed.)
All told, the gunmen stole approximately $ 750,000 in jewelry and around $ 20,000 in cash.
TMZ reports that the men continued to drive around with 6ix9ine in their car, only for him to finagle his way out and eventually plead for help from a stranger passing by.
This person called 911 and 6ix9ine was hospitalized for his very serious injuries.
The Associated Press has confirmed with the New York Police Department that 6ix9ine alleged he was forced from the car he was riding in around 4:30 a.m.
But he tells a different version of events from the story written out above.
6ix9ine says the men had him call someone to bring personal property to the scene, where they took an “undisclosed amount of jewelry” from the star and then left.
The AP goes on to say that 6ix9ine became “uncooperative” with authorities once he filed his report.
Moreover, there’s no mention in this police report of the rapper seeking medical attention or being treated for any injuries following the event.
Per a follow-up TMZ story, Tekashi claims he drove himself to the hospital and nothing about this was nearly as dramatic as the site initially claimed.
Could this version of events be accurate? Sure.
Could Tekashi also be covering up for what really transpired because he has a reputation of being tough and hard to protect? Absolutely.
We’ll let our readers decide which version they believe.
But there’s no sugar-coating that hospital photo above, dude. Yikes.
