Tekashi 6ix9ine sentenced to probation in child sex case

Tekashi 6ix9ine has been involved in a shooting just a few hours after he received just four years probation for posting footage of a 13-year-old girl performing a sex act at a party, and video of him groping the young teen.

The Brooklyn rapper, 22, was celebrating the lenient sentence with friends at upscale restaurant Philippe Chow, near Madison Avenue and East 61 St in Manhattan, at 6pm when a fight broke out between him and a pal, ABC 7 reports.

Police were then called to reports of a shooting, just outside the restaurant.

Tekashi, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was reportedly not hurt but his bodyguard was rushed to hospital in a serious, but stable condition.

No arrests have yet been made. 

Police temporarily shut down part of Madison Avenue at 6pm amid the shooting investigation.

Just hours earlier, the rapper was seen grinning in court as he was sentenced to just four years probation for a 2015 child sex case in which he publicly posted a video of a 13-year-old girl performing sexual acts at a party.

The hip hop star, whose real name is Daniel Hernandez, was pictured beaming from ear to ear Friday in Manhattan Supreme Court after he heard the verdict.

Tekashi thanked the judge afterward and said: ‘I have millions of youth that look at me as a role model and the last place I want to be is incarcerated, they don’t deserve it. Thank you.’

In the crude video taken in Harlem, the child, sans clothes, was ‘engaging in oral intercourse’ with Taquan Anderson, as the rapper made thrusting movements behind her.

In a separate video, Taquan groped the young girl’s breasts as she sat on Tekashi’s lap. The rapper was 18 at the time.

He admitted to the child sex crime and pleaded guilty to one count of Use of a Child in a Sexual Performance in October 2015.

The judge granted him a plea in exchange for his honesty, and two years of his sentence were deferred. 

He will be required to complete 1,000 hours of community service and steer clear of involvement in gangs.

In earlier photos captured by DailyMail.com Friday, the rapper was seen entering the courtroom alongside an enormous entourage.

The Gummo crooner’s pals were spotted giving him a pep talk ahead of the sentencing.

Tekashi appeared a tad more put together than usual, wearing a black suit, white dress shirt and orange and black striped tie. 

The heavily-tattooed rapper nervously placed over his mouth as he closed eyes and  prepared to hear the verdict.

Tekashi has had numerous other run-ins with the law. 

He was arrested over the summer after he missed a court date for allegedly choking a 16-year-old fan who was trying to record him at a mall in Houston. 

His arrest for the January incident came after he landed back in New York City from a European tour.

And in May, he was taken into custody for driving with a suspended license. He also was accused of assaulting an officer. 

His attorney, Lance Lazzaro, argued in court that his client’s recent arrests happened well after the 2017 deadline for his plea deal. The four-year probation sentence was what his team had been seeking.
