Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine seems to be a never-ending source of drama.
During his recent 10-day visit to LA he hired a gang of bodyguards, racking up a tab of $97,165 with two different security companies, according to TMZ.
And though the 22-year old, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, loves showing off his lavish lifestyle online, he has yet to pay the bill.

The armed guards reportedly hovered around the rapper with round-the-clock protection, as well as three bulletproof SUVs during the Bushwick-born star’s time in the City Of Angels.
Whenever he was seen in public he had at least four very large men surrounding him at all times, even for a casual stroll down the street.
It turns out, security workers were in harms way at least two times.
The first situation happened when 6ix9ine had a confrontation with fellow rapper Slim 400 at ComplexCon in Long Beach, which led to the rapper not performing at the annual event.

The two could be heard yelling at each other in a video, and at one point Tekashi’s security detail had to hold him back and rush him off before things could spiral out of control.
A few days later he found himself in another tense situation, when several shots were fired outside a Beverly Hills mansion where the rapper was filming a video with Kanye West.
According to TMZ, about eight shots were fired into the house; one of them punctured a bullet hole through a bedroom window.
Extra security was brought in which resulted in Tekashi racking up 25 hours of security protection just for the video.

I fought the law and the law won: The 22-year old has had several brushes with the law since 2015; the rapper is pictured at his arraignment in New York in July 2018
69, along with five of his associates, were arrested in New York last week. He faces racketeering, conspiring to commit armed robbery, drug dealing and firearms charges.
He was being held in general population at Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, but has since been moved to an undisclosed facility after he reportedly got death threats.
The arrests were reportedly part of a joint investigation between the New York Police Department, Homeland Security, and the Justice Department’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
In October Tekashi was sentenced to four years probation for the use of a child in a sexual performance, and more recently he had pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct for a separate assault charge on a NY police officer, according to Vulture.
The terms of both guilty pleas stated that Tekashi remain out of criminal trouble or face jail time.
