Tekashi 6ix9ine has found himself in the midst of controversy once again. The polarizing rapper is allegedly being blackmailed by an underage girl who claims he slept with her.
The rumor spread when 6ix9ine’s rival Trippie Redd shared a picture on Instagram, which purportedly shows the “GUMMO” creator in bed with a teen.
“She 15,” he wrote. “Don’t kill the messenger. GET THE STRAP.
Soon after, DJ Akademiks said he spoke to 6ix9ine about the photo. The rainbow color-haired rhymer reportedly claimed the teen was blackmailing him over bail money.
“I just spoke to #tekashi69 who is the rapper from the last post,” Akademiks wrote. “apparently according to him the chick is clout chasing after she asked for money to go bail out her boyfriend. And apparently after they didn’t do what she wanted she is claiming he smashed her underage.”
Whether it’s fact or fiction, the allegation comes at a bad time for 6ix9ine since he’s in hot water for for violating his plea agreement. He’s scheduled to return to court for sentencing in October.
6ix9ine previously pleaded guilty to the use of a child in a sexual performance in 2015. Prosecutors have recommended he serve three years in prison and register as a sex offender for violating the plea deal.
The alleged blackmail plot didn’t put a halt to 6ix9ine’s weekend activities though. He performed at JAY-Z’s Made In America Festival on Saturday (September 1).
