Tekashi 6ix9ine was rushed to a hospital via ambulance Tuesday evening in Florida after he was jumped by a group of men in the sauna of an LA Fitness.
The Stoopid artist was beaten ‘to a pulp’ in the ambush, his attorney Lance Lazzaro told TMZ.
The 26-year-old rap artist, who did not have security on hand at the time, did his best to defend himself but was outnumbered by his attackers, his lawyer said.
The Bushwick, New York native was rushed to a nearby medical facility after people heard the ruckus and the manager of the facility contacted police and emergency services.
The Fefe artist, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was seen in a photo obtained by the outlet with a swollen face and a gash near his cheek. Insiders told the outlet that his jaw, ribs and back were also injured in the violent incident.
