Tekashi 6ix9ine Sued For Over $5 Million For Missing Scheduled Performances
Tekashi 6ix9ine is heading back to a courtroom after being named in two lawsuits.
6ix9ine, who was born Daniel Hernandez, is being accused of failing to perform in both suits, after being previously paid to do so. He is also being accused of making false statements and “trashing the people who paid him” after the performances did not happen, according to VLADTV.
The first suit, filed by Hits Before Fame LLC and After Hours LLC, is asking for a total of $5.3 million dollars from the infamous rapper, his former manager Shotti, and other associated companies and employees. The plaintiff’s attorneys also publicly filed a sworn statement from a private investigator, Michelle Abraham – who claims to have visited 6ix9ine’s mansion in Lake Worth, Florida and spoken with the rapper’s mother.
Abraham revealed that 6ix9ine‘s mother told her “Danny” was not home and would return the next day. She then said that his mother called Tekashi and he spoke to Abraham on the phone. He told Abraham that he “didn’t live there” and that he lived “in an apartment in Brooklyn,” despite seeing both his custom Lamborghini and Bentley in the driveway.
In the second lawsuit, Jaime Dominguez and JJD Entertainment claim that they paid 6ix9ine over $170,000 for a “concert that never happened” and reportedly told blogs that he took back the agreement he made with them, damaging the company’s image and reputation.
According to recent court filings, the plaintiffs of both lawsuits asked for 6ix9ine to be found in default and to grant judgments in their favor. They say since he “failed to respond” to both suits, months after being served.
A judge can rule in the plaintiffs’ favor and order damages to be paid if a defendant does not respond in a timely manner.
Tekashi 6ix9ine seemingly responded to his legal woes in a post to his Instagram story, saying:
“I drop a song once a year. Only released 2 songs in the past 2 years (750 days), sell out shows all around the world, I would hate me too.”
Four months ago, 6ix9ine told a judge in a separate lawsuit that he was “struggling to make ends meet” since his income is not the same since he was indicted in 2019.
