Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was attacked by a group of people in the bathroom of a South Florida gym on Tuesday, and he was taken to the hospital.
His lawyer, Lance Lazzaro, said that the rapper, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez and is 26 years old, got cuts and bruises on his face.
Lazzaro said that three or four men beat up the rapper both inside and outside the sauna at the LA Fitness gym. The rapper tried to fight back, but was hurt. “He had cuts to his face and bruises,” Lazzaro said. The lawyer said that the people who did it ran away when employees heard the noise.

Lazzaro says that South Florida police were called, and Hernandez was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital. As of right now, it’s not clear if the rapper is still in the hospital.
Lazzaro told TMZ that after Hernandez gets out of federal prison in April 2020, he will make sure he is safe. Hernandez was arrested in 2019 and given a two-year prison sentence on nine charges related to his work with the Nine Trey Bloods gang. These charges included racketeering, drug trafficking, and gun crimes.
Hernandez’s prison time was cut short because he helped federal authorities put his friends in jail. Because of concerns about COVID-19, he was let out of jail early after a judge called him a “model prisoner.”
In a video that got out on Twitter, one of Hernandez’s attackers says, “Take a picture. I’m going to be well-known now.” On another video, Hernandez was seen leaving the gym with cuts and bruises.
Several news sources say that Hernandez was kicked out of a Miami baseball stadium on Friday because he was drunk and making fans angry.
