Tekashi 6ix9ine attacked in Florida gym

Tekashi 6ix9ine has been severely beaten by a group of men inside a South Florida gym and left with injuries so bad the controversial rapper was rushed to a hospital by ambulance, TMZ reports.

According to the outlet, 6ix9ine’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, says the rapper was inside the sauna Tuesday at an LA Fitness when all of the sudden he was attacked by several guys without warning.

Lazzaro says 6ix9ine tried to fight off the combatants, but there were too many of them, beating him to a pulp before fleeing. Lance notes 6ix9ine did not have security with him at the time of the attack.

Gym staff heard the commotion and immediately notified a manager. Police and EMS were then called to the scene, and he was transported to a hospital by ambulance.

TMZ reports further that a picture it obtained shows damage to his face with gashes and swelling. We’re told he also suffered injuries to his jaw, ribs and his back.

There’s still no update on the rapper’s condition.
