Tekashi 6ix9ine was reportedly rushed to the hospital Tuesday night after being attacked at a gym.
The 26-year-old rapper was in the sauna of a LA Fitness when he was “savagely beaten by a group of men,” TMZ reports. He was without security when he was suddenly attacked.
Upon hearing the commotion, gym staff alerted a manager. Police and EMS were then called and Tekashi was taken by ambulance to the hospital. He reportedly suffered injuries to his jaw, ribs, and back.
The controversial MC’s attorney, Lance Lazzaro, told the outlet he plans to contact the appropriate authorities to get Tekashi the protection he needs. The attack comes after the rapper was granted early release from federal prison for cooperating with authorities to help put several other gang members behind bars.
The motive for the attack is unknown.
