Tekashi 6ix9ine has been attacked by a group of men at a gym sauna.
His injuries were so severe he was rushed to hospital by ambulance shortly after the attack.
6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, tells TMZ that the 26 year-old rapper was inside the sauna Tuesday at an LA Fitness when all of the sudden he was attacked by several guys without warning.
He was alone at the time of attack and tried to defend himself, but there were too many attackers to fight off.
Gym staff heard the commotion and immediately notified a manager. Police and EMS were then called to the scene, and he was transported to a hospital by ambulance.
TMZ posted a photograph of the rapper in a hospital bed, where you can see the visible damage done to his face. It’s also reported that he suffered injuries to his jaw, ribs and his back.
6ix9ine was arrested back in 2018 and given nine overlapping charges for gun possession, attempted murder and gang activity.
He initially pleaded not guilty, but then switched his plea to guilty as of January 2019.
He was looking at facing 50 years, but after co-operating with authorities his sentence was reduced to two.
His lawyer then managed to get him out early over fears he could catch coronavirus.
