Popular US rapper, Tekashi 6ix9ine has been hospitalized over bruises he sustained after being brutally beaten by a group of unknown men inside a South Florida gym.
Lance Lazzaro, 6ix9ine’s attorney, told TMZ that the rapper was inside the gym sauna on Tuesday, March 21, at an LA Fitness when he was assaulted by some guys without warning.
Lazzaro further stated that 6ix9ine attempted to fight off the attackers, but there were many of them, beating him to a pulp before escaping. Lance adds that 6ix9ine was not accompanied by security at the time of the incident.
The manager was immediately informed when the gym staff heard the commotion. Police and EMS were alerted to the scenerio, and he was being conveyeded to a hospital by an ambulance.
He had facial injuries, including gashes and puffiness. In addition, he had injuries to his mouth, ribs, and back.
Though it is unknown whether the attack is linked to the rapper’s assistance with the feds on a gang-related case, which resulted in his early release from federal prison, Lazzaro said he will contact the officials to ensure 6ix9ine has the protection he plainly requires.
Here’s a video footage of the attack;
