Video shows Tekashi 6ix9ine getting robbed and jumped inside of LA Fitness Sauna: Report
The rapper’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, told TMZ—which received a photo of him—says he has injuries to his jaw, back, and ribs. Tekashi 6ix9ine was using a sauna at a LA Fitness when he was jumped by multiple men. And he was transported by ambulance to a local hospital. His alleged assailants fled the scene prior to the arrival of police.
Back In February 2019, Tekashi 6ix9ine was sentenced to 24 months in prison after pleading guilty to multiple gang crimes, including conspiracy to commit murder and armed robbery, and agreeing to cooperate with prosecutors. He was released in August 2020; despite the threat of retaliatory violence from his former gang, he turned down an offer for witness protection.
His attorney said it was unclear if 6ix9ine’s attack on Tuesday was retaliatory and/or gang related. Lazzaro also intends to get in touch with the feds to ensure 6ix9ine is being adequately protected.

One Twitter user shared a clip from just after the attack, showing the 26-year-old with a bloody face, walking toward the exit in socks and saying, “y’all n***as jumped me.” Other social media posts briefly show the attack in progress, including the face of one of the men.
