Tekashi 6ix9ine Facing Lawsuit For Allegedly Refusing To Pay $75,000 Security Bill
It’s no secret Tekashi 6ix9ine has upped his security after being released from prison nearly a year ago. The rapper, who was labeled a snitch after testifying against members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang, reinforced his protection once he was a free man. But now, he’s facing a lawsuit for allegedly not paying his security team before he went to jail in the first place, according to TMZ.
Metropolitan Patrol said that it provided its services to Tekashi 6ix9ine (real name Daniel Hernandez) near the end of 2018, including 11 days in November of that year. Metropolitan Patrol alleges that it signed an agreement that it would give Tekashi 6ix9ine protection 24/7 with a pay rate of $85/hour in the daytime and $127.50/hour at night.
Metropolitan Patrol also said it gave Tekashi armored vehicles, including a fully-loaded Yukon that came with ballistic panels, and two Ford Explorers that featured lights and sirens.
The bill amounted to just more than $75,000, and Metropolitan Patrol said the rapper has refused to pay. MP is suing him for the amount owed plus legal fees and late fees, equaling $88,000.
Tekashi’s lawyer Lance Lazzaro said a booking agency, MTA Bookings, is the party that has to pay the bill, and that Tekashi has no connection to it at all. He called the lawsuit “meritless.”
