Tekashi 6ix9ine hospitalized after brutal sauna beating by group of men at LA Fitness
In the video showing Tekashi 6ix9ine’s attack, you see one man continuously punching him as the rapper tries to defend himself. In a gym in South Florida, Tekashi 6ix9ine was brutally beaten by a group of men, suffering injuries so severe that he had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. According to 6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro tells TMZ that while he was inside the sauna at LA Fitness on Tuesday, several guys attacked him without warning. Lazzaro says 6ix9ine tried to fight off the attackers, but they were too many, and he was beaten to a pulp before fleeing. At the time of the attack, 6ix9ine did not have security with him.

An employee of the gym heard the commotion and immediately informed the manager. He was transported to the hospital by ambulance after police and EMS arrived on the scene. You can see the damage to Tekashi’s face in the photo taken from the hospital – he has gashes and swelling. Apart from his jaw, ribs and back, he also suffered injuries. According to Lazzaro, the next step is to contact the Feds to make sure 6ix9ine gets the protection he clearly deserves. After cooperating with authorities to land several of his gang cohorts behind bars, he was granted early release from federal prison. Tekashi’s cooperation may have had something to do with the gym attack.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Beats To A Pulp In LA Gym And Rushed To Hospital By Ambulance
A group of men jumped Tekashi 6ix9ine in an LA Fitness sauna on Tuesday afternoon in Florida, resulting in his being transported by ambulance to a hospital. Lance Lazzaro, Stoopid’s lawyer, told TMZ that the artist was ‘beaten to a pulp’ during the ambush. His lawyer said the 26-year-old rap artist tried to defend himself, but was outnumbered by his attackers. After people heard the ruckus and the manager of the facility contacted police and emergency services, the Bushwick, New York native was taken to a nearby medical facility for treatment. In a photo obtained by the outlet, Fefe artist Daniel Hernandez is shown with a swollen face and a gash near his cheek. An insider told the outlet that he was also injured in the violent incident to his jaw, ribs and back. As a result of the attack, Tekashi 6ix9ine’s lawyer said he would coordinate additional security with federal authorities. On social media, a clip showed two men punching and kicking the singer as he lay on the bathroom floor of a gym. The rapper also appeared to walk into the main gym area with blood flowing down his face as he exited the bathroom. Given his past legal issues and behavior, it was not immediately clear if the incident at LA Fitness Tuesday was related.
In an Instagram post last month, the rapper showed off a metal case containing stacks of cash. After his 2019 sentence for racketeering, the artist was released from federal prison in early 2020. In addition to racketeering, attempted murder, possession of a firearm, and assault with a weapon, he was charged with multiple felonies. According to the case, Tekashi 6ix9ine faced a minimum sentence of 47 years and a maximum of life in prison. The musician reached a plea deal in the case where he was accused of multiple crimes while a member of the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods gang. Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine testified against multiple gang members as part of his plea deal. Before he came up in music, the performer gathered millions of Instagram followers. He has been involved in some tough situations in recent years, including causing a scene while extremely drunk at Miami’s Loan Park on Friday. His longtime girlfriend Rachel Wattley repeatedly hitting on him at the Kiki by the River nightclub in Miami in August 2022 led to his arrest.
