BROOKLYN, NY – Tekashi 6ix9ine has been hospitalized after reportedly being attacked and kidnapped on Sunday (July 22), according to TMZ. The assailants allegedly robbed him of $750,000 in jewelry and $15,000 to $20,000 in cash.
Sources told TMZ that 6ix9ine was driving home after working on a video in Brooklyn on Sunday morning. A car allegedly blocked his path and three gunmen hopped out of the vehicle to confront the rapper. The attackers reportedly pistol-whipped 6ix9ine, knocking him out before kidnapping him.
According to the sources, 6ix9ine regained consciousness inside his kidnappers’ vehicle. The gunmen allegedly threatened to kill him before making their way to 6ix9ne’s home. There, two of his attackers went inside to rob the place of thousands of dollars. 6ix9ine’s baby mama and child were inside the residence but not harmed.
The incident didn’t end there. TMZ reports the gunmen fled with 6ix9ine still in the car, but he was somehow able to get out of the vehicle. His attackers allegedly didn’t chase after him, and 6ix9ine was able to hop in a stranger’s ride.
The stranger called 911 and an ambulance arrived to take 6ix9ine to the hospital. He remains at an unidentified medical facility.
