Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine has been rushed to the hospital after he was jumped inside a South Florida gym by a group of men, his lawyer says.
Tekashi 69, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was reportedly taken from the scene in an ambulance after the attack.
The rapper’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, told TMZ that 6ix9ine was in the sauna at the LA Fitness when he was attacked by a group of men. Lazzaro claimed that the rapper tried fighting the group off but was overwhelmed.
6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi69, did not have security with him at the time of the incident, Lazzaro told TMZ. The gym’s staff were notified of the incident and called for EMS and police.
6ix9ine reportedly suffered injuries to his face, ribs, jaw, and back, TMZ reported.
